Default Highest average MPGS for the most miles Driven

Lets see who has the best average for miles per gallon related to the number of miles driven. I'll start by posting mine up. Include your engine, tranny, rear gear, model of truck like quad/reg cab and 4x4 or not, unless noted in ur sig. I have never reset my trip B on my evic since new. Anyone got me beat?

The best I've seen on one trip was 24.1 mpg on a 150 mile trip to Phoenix. 4x2/3.55 gears, with tuner on regular tune/intake/exhaust and cruise set at 65. I don't ever average that normally(mpg or mph...lol), was just trying to see what was possible.

The best I have ever done was actually better than the fuel economy rating....I hit 7.8L/100km - with an average speed of 102km/h for a 96km trip from work.

I was really impressed....Next time I will take a picture if I can mimic that again. I babied the throttle and let off the gas on downhills. I never did hit the accelerator hard at any point.

But I usually summer driving do no worse than 9.5L/100km giving her at 120km/hr on my trek to and from work (all highway) and my average evic is usually around 9.6L/100km

I love the V6 Pentastar mated with the 3.55 and crew

I wish I had a picture of it still but I did a 70 mile trip drafting a 18 wheeler at 62 mph and got 34mpg

Otherwise I see 20-21 at 68mph using the 91oct tune back n forth to work

My highest was 22.5mpg average from Orlando to Jacksonville and back. Cruising around 60-65mph(wife was driving, actually) and I have a 2010 4.7L quad cab 2wd with 3.55.

Typical is 20+ on the hwy. I only got the 22.5 one time.

Next best and most impressive was 20 mpg average from Orlando to Arkansas and back in 110+ deg F heat about half the tip with 1200lb in the bed.
