well up until the past 3 months I was getting on avg highway 12-14l/100km and 18-20l/100 in town with lots of stop go and hills. Now when on the highway cruising at 95km/hr the truck wouldnt even kick into eco and was getting 15l/100 and my total average is 22-24l/100 never seen this bad of milage before its going back to the dealer to have something done cause its not right at all.

Have you been in to the dealer yet? I have apprx. 9000km on my 2012 5.7 Quad Cab 4x4, I drive only in town, and drive like some ones grandfather. Over the last 5 tanks of fuel, I have averaged 28 litres per 100km! I have not read that bad anywhere! Only modification I have is a K&N cai ! My truck is a pig! Next oil change coming up, I will get it checked out! Curious if you have any info on bad mileage from the dealer?

ps, incase someone asks, I DO NOT use 4 wheel drive!

well i must say my mileage is the same. Hopefully we will see it improve a bit with some new gas that will be shortly starting to come back.

As per the ebrake. I have had it "magicaly" come on.. but i narrowed it down to my pant leg, or boot hooking it when jumping in the truck. luckily i didnt make it any further then the and of the driveway before noticing what it was

I could manage 12L easily. Reset the Evic and drive 40 kmh in light traffic and there ya go 12L, but in the long term its not realistic, as soon as you idle, hit traffic or accelerate the 12L suddenly becomes 15-17L
