Just rolled 1200 miles in my '13 2wd quad cab. Filled her up for the 4th time exactly at 1200 miles, evic is reading 16.9 mpg with 80% urban & 20% freeway. Have not had the fuel low light come on yet and normally have 75+ miles left on the distance till empty.

I do not drive like grandma but also do not drive it like I stole it, normally first away at the lights but no tire smoking going on. Definitely used the power a few times to over take and piss a few ricers off but normally stay between 5 and 10 mph over the posted limit. The cruising sweet spot seems to be 72 mph showing 21/22 mpg with cruise on, with cruise off she gets a little more but loses going up hills.

I'm extremely happy with the mpg compared to the old 5.9 I had before, hopefully when I get around to adding some mods and adding the miles she will free up a little more. I think driving style goes a long way towards your mpg, especially your braking.
