Default Fuel economy

Living in a mountainous area, I'm a little surprise when I get 26.13 mpg. Up here in Canada, my readout is 9 liters/100 km but for a full sized truck doing 100 km/h, it's pretty sweet! I don't even want to remember what I got with my H3T!

How is it with your ride? Are you happy with your economy or not?

Eh, I'm unimpressed. But I live in a mountainous area too. Average 14-15mpg highway with modest driving.

It's better than my old Ram, but I'm averaging 12-13 mpg on mine. I wish it was better. I didn't expect great MPG, but I would like to be in the 15-16 range.

I've not actually racked up some real mpg numbers, BUT
so far I can tell it's better then the '14 Silverado as I pretty
much drive it to the same places & stuff, Both are the same body style & drive line. 4X4, Reg.Cab. Short box, V-6, Auto, A/C
