I'm almost all (90-95%) city miles and I get about 11.1 on average.

I drive an average of 60-65 mph to and from work, which is 35 miles one way. I'll get anywhere from 18 to 22 mpg on the highway and in the city anywhere from 12 to 16 mpg. Good Luck on better gas mileage....

It varies so much on where I drive and how I drive. I have a 25mi trip to work and I can get anywhere from 15-19 depending on how I drive. Around town and on short trips I get about 13. On a trip on the interstate I can get 20.

It would be interesting to know what speed transmission you guys have 5 or 6 in relation to your mileage.

That is correct. Even though it's a different trans (same, just reprogrammed) I think that MPG numbers for 2012s might be discussed in here too. I am consistently getting 12.5 mpg average - calculated after filling up as I don't have the EVIC. This is 99% city driving. And since it is winter I am using a ton more gas since I am sitting idle waiting for the temp needle to move. On the coldest of days it takes about 10 mins for the needle to move. Usually I sit there 5-7 mins. It's usually blowing some warm/hot air after about that long. Living 2.5 miles from work has advantages.
Best avg mpg was 14. 30% of that tank was used on highway and a road that is 55mph but had stoplights on it too.

Looks like my 2012 is doing about the same as most of you.

I would be interested to know if the trucks have 4wd or 2wd, not the trans.

It would also be interesting to know if those of you that are using a tune that requires 93 gas have calculated if it is even worth the higher price gas with a little higher mpg or lower price gas and a bit lower mpg running stock. My guess is the difference is negligible

That being said, very rarely do I get a lead foot ... I take all my aggression out on the cars at work
10 L/100 km is still about 28 mpg ( imperial gallons )
That is still exceptional mileage.
I wonder if your EVIC is off. Have you done an actual hand calc?
I am in flat Ontario also and never get anywhere near that.
I get about 13 L/100km or 22 mpg on the highway.
This is a little better than the 08 F150 FX2 with 5.4, so I'm happy with that.

A quick hand calculation of my last tank would be 15.2 L/100km for mixed driving, mostly hwy though. I'm impressed so far with the milage and am looking forward to what I get when the engine has some more clicks on it ... only have about 1200km right now.

Friday trip to the in-laws was about 285 miles. Part was very hilly and part was fairly level. Non was what I would consider flat per se. I averaged 17.9 mpg. Most of the trip was using cruise control set at 75 mph or less. I have the 5.7 Hemi, 3.92 gears and 20" tires. I was really hoping for something closer to 20 mpg but will take what I got. Heading back in the morningand weather may be a factor. Will see if there is any change on the return mileage.

You'll probably have to back off your top speed to around 65mph to break that 20mpg barrier.

My city average is around 16mpg, hwy gets up to 20mpg when I keep it under 65mph. I'm burning 89 octane 10% ethanol fuel in my truck.
