Total milage traveled 390...360 highway on cruise contol most of the time @ 74 mph. and 30 miles of heavy city traffic. Total fuel consumed 16.3 gal. average mpg . 23.8..Not to shabby for a 7000 lb. truck with 136600 odo reading ..I was running ,according to the overhead computer ,24.4 until I ran into heavy highway traffic around Tampa and stuck my foot in it. Amazingly I'm running around 2100 rpm. @ 74/75... Now I'm anxious to hang my 9000 pound 5th wheel on it .I'll report after doing a shake down trip to the Florida Keys soon.

Wow so is your truck bone stock or did it come with any mod to increase fuel efficiency?
