1400 miles, I see between 17 and 19. Will show 20.x on the 18 mile drive to town at 65MPH with no stops. Around residential neighborhoods,(30mph or less, stop sign every block or so) I get 13 or 14. 5000# travel trailer hooked on I get between six and maybe 10.
I usually use 10% ETHANOL 87 octane gas. Just for ships and giggles I put in 20 gallons of 91 octane pure gas. Saw no real improvement, the 18 or 19 per was more consistant on the evic, but no overall gain. At $4:10 a gallon I won't be doing that often!

I am at 4500 miles and my mileage has been going up. I was very disappointed at first but with miles it seems to be improving. My AVG has just reached 17mpg where it has been down in the 13's and 14's since I bought the truck.

NJ/NY not having real gas doesn't surprise me. I was just told yesterday that in Texas there is a rule (as opposed to a law) that fuel vendors that are actually in or in an adjacent county to a large city (Austin, San Antonio, etc.) have no choice but to buy gasohol. Vendors outside of this area are free to buy/sell pure gas. Evidently the fuel wholesalers are the ones that are doing this "voluntarily" to comply with a mandate from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality or TCEQ.

I would have no problem with any of this if it was actually about cleaner air, but the more I dig the more I see that its all about money. The state law that requires smog testing in Travis and adjacent counties is flawed on many areas, but the primary flaw is that even if a vehicle passes the physical smog/sniff tailpipe exhaust check with flying colors (supposedly the WHOLE reason for this law) it will fail if there is a check engine light. It doesn't matter how old or how new the vehicle is and it was written in ignorance that not all manufacturers use only emissions MIL errors to trip the light. So bottom line, you can be driving a CLEAN vehicle yet fail the inspection even so. Remedy: spend a lot of money to "repair" the "issue"...or buy a new vehicle. Anyway you look at this, the consumer loses...that's us!

And they certainly don't seem to care about all the crappy emissions coming from all the vehicles being let in from Mexico (California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas borders) every single day. Just come here and spend some money and it's all good. I don't know how the Customs officers live for a day huffing those fumes on the southern border.

I know that I bought a truck so i'm not going to get 34+ but I just want to make sure nothing is wrong because everyone else seems to be around the 16-18 mark. I am at 3200 miles if that makes a difference.
I also have a 13' CC 4x4 3.55 and I have about 3300 miles on it with average of about 12.6 MPG so unfortunately I would have to say its also the area in which you drive... I live on Long Island, NY relatively flat but mostly city driving....like others have said around 4500 miles is when you should start seeing the peak of improvements and with the summer gas now at least in the north east hoping things will get better hahaha
