I picked my truck from 500 miles away. And driving speed limit(without cruise control), average gas mileage was 22.2 and on calculating manually it was at 22.09 mpg

First fillup on my 2wd BigHorn showed 14mpg for totally around-town driving. Second fillup after a 300 mile trip between 70-75mph for much of it showed 19. These are manually calculated figures. The trip computer so far has been showing 2mpg better than actual.

I have the big horn hemi w/ the 8 speed 4x4. I bought mine new years eve. Live in the DC area. Only driven around town so far. After 3,000 miles the trip computer says I am getting 15.9. If I am on the toll road or beltway w/ no traffic, it will get up to 16.5.

Lot's of cold and snow so far, so it has had a lot of warmup. Gotta love the automatic start!!
