Default MPGs

I went out the store this morning (6 miles) and zeroed out the AVIC and drove it like I normally do...got 12.2 MPGs average. I zeroed it once again on the way back, babied it, and got 16.5 average. The trip involves a lot stop and goes.

I made about a 200 hundred mile round trip this weekend and got around 18.5 to 19 mpg with two adults and four children in the cab.
