docgatling is on a distinguished road

I'll stick my 2 cents in.
Around town I'm getting 16 - 17. (keeping my foot out of the HEMI!) Freeway, 70 - 75 mph around 20mpg. no load in the bed.
BUT - on my last 1200 mile round trip to Nor Cal and the bed loaded with camping gear I managed - now get this - with cruise control (set at 75) 16 MPG. Without Cruise control and self managing 75 mph I could keep the ECO light on get 17+. mpg. Seems like setting the cruise shuts down the VV.T
