My truck only has 1100 miles on the motor so I expect it to get a little better. I was going 80 on the freeway, b/c the ride is a little better. Road was fairly flat(NortherN ND) and my tank had 91 octane with no ethynol. 3.73 gears.

Since my trip I have reset a few times and it seems going 60 I could possibly get 17mpg, and also possibly rear ended

I too did not need a Cummings and am happy with my gasser!
Same boat here...don't need diesel. Curious how the ride is in your 2500.
