For a 2 wheel drive that seems about normal. If you are going by the Evic numbers you will find that that is a little high compared to hand calculating.

I found my Evic to be about .6 miles higher than hand calculation. That being said, straight Freeway driving (not LA freeways), with ideal conditions, no wind, mostly flat, 2 people and about 500 pounds in the bed I can get 20.1 mpg at about 72mph and 21mpg at 63 mph. This is with mild acceleration and keeping it in Fuel Saver (Eco mode) as much as possible. I don't use cruise control when doing this, I find it gets less if I use it. Mix is about 17-18 mpg and mostly city driving 12-14. To many traffic lights and to much idle time waiting for them to change.

Everyones driving habits are different and this makes a big difference in mpg claims.

My truck is a CC, 4x4, 3.55 rear, Hemi, 2009.
