Per EVIC, 19.8 with slight tailwind, 99.9999% flat highway, cruise set on 62-63. Approx 135 miles. The same 135 back, EVIC reduced it to 18.0. Running 70 MPH into a 'moderate' headwind.

No MDS activation on either 'leg' of this trip. Once back in Houston, on the beltway where there are small 'rolling' hills, MDS kicks in at times, mileage went back up to low-mid 18's. 65-70 mph.

09 reg cab 1500, 5.7 w/3.92. No mods to powertrain. Tonneau cover.
