I typically get about 18.5-19.6 out of my truck with a split of city/highway driving. That is manually calculated; I've noticed there is also a significant difference based on the fuel I use...BP typically nets the highest mileage (19.6 almost every tank), Tom Thumb (amaco gas, I believe) generally doesn't get me above 18.

As for my truck and driving, it's a 4.7L with 6-spd manual transmission, 265/70R-17 BF Goodrich All Terrain TA tires, not sure the gear ratio. My in-town driving averages 35-50 mph, highway is 70-75. My big kicker - I don't use my AC, with rare exceptions, and usually have the windows down. Full-time AC use drives my mileage down to the mid-high 17's.
