I am in the middle of a road trip from the Florida Keys to Carlisle, PA. I kept my tires the way they came at 45 psi and I have a tonneau cover with the 3.55 gears. My computer was showing 21.2 when I got here yesterday. I hand calculated the average on one tank and we got a bit over 20, after a day of hills and 70 mph driving.

I have been over-inflating my tires on all my vehicles for the past year or so, in order to cut down the rolling resistance - and like the guy at the tire store said 'how many tires have you seen worn out down the middle?'
