I just turned 2000 miles on my 2012. I was getting almost 22 mph driving to Wisconsin. That was driving the speed limit drafting behind semi's..I usually get about 17 mph on the road and 13 in the city. Again only if I keep my foot out of the throttle.

My mileage is up, now at 800 miles on my truck. This tank has 100 miles on it mixed highway and city driving. The evic is reading 16.4 ( I have fround this to be real close on the past fill ups). I drive 60 mph and accelerate gently from a stop. Still winter gas here which effects mileage a great deal. I hope mileage will come up a little more as the miles pile up.

My truck was a dealer trade and was driven about 100 miles from the dealer that had it. The guy that drove it here from the dealer in IA averaged 19.1 the truck had 20 miles on it when it left the dealer in IA.

Drove to Columbus,OH from Dayton today on I-70 which is flat. 22.1 MPG on the way over. I never went over 70 mph & spent most of it around 68 with some use of the cruise. On the way back did not do as well as MPG was 20.1. However, I can't be more pleased with the gas milage this truck gets on the Highway. Especially, on winter gas! Now the City milage is not good as it is around 14. Now if I could just get rid of some of the annoying rattles it would be darn near perfect. (For the non believers I did take pictures of the dash on the way over)!

At 72 degrees today and with the most recent fill up I was getting up to 16.4 on my trip. Not sure if it was the gasoline or the warm weather. Typically this is the best I am going to get on cruise control. Otherwise I have this crazy foot syndrome.

Still in the process of breaking it in.
Looks like I'll be getting just a tic over 16 MPG mixed driving on my first tank (think the dealer filled it with 87 octane). Just working on getting it broken in proerly and learning most efficient mode to operate in (6 sp auto). Typically drive 75 on the highways in 6m and use 3 or 4m in the city depending on traffic flow. I'm optimistic that once broken in and I settle into a more efficient driving style and mode I'll see 17.5-18 mpg combined (2 WD, unloaded) using 89 octane with summer formulation.

And if you live in California you can sue

900 Miles on the truck. On the drive to and from base everday which is maybe 2-3 miles from my house to my office parking lot I get about 10.9-11.2 and I try to drive like a grandma. First week I got it went on a 90 mile trip on the way there I cruised at 72-73 and got 17.2 mpg. On the way back I went 67-68 stayed in eco mode almost the entire time and got 21 on the highway portions of the trip. Live in West Texas so not to many hills to knock you off eco mode if you stay just 2-3mph under the speed limit, Which I usually can't make myself do.

Today, I drove about 200 miles. Trip included up/down long hills, local traffic and flat highway use. EVIC was reset at beginning of trip. At the end it registered 19.1. Not bad considering I now have about 300 miles on it.
