Since it was your wife driving, her foot probably isn't as heavy as yours, especially from stop lights.

I can't help but trying to be the first one off the line from the lights or my mileage would be better
Well that's not really true lol, she pretty much puts it to the floor. When we test drove the truck she was burning rubber out of the dealership.....I don't know how, I can't seem to get the tires to break loose unless powerbraking haha. It was all highway so that couldn't be it. I've noticed from the very few and short highway driving I've done in the truck the evic always shows the instant mpg as around 22 or 24 sometimes depending on speed, this was just the first trip that was really measurable.

Sorry to hear about the curb rash. Do you have your evic set to lower your mirrors when in reverse? My wife says this helps her tremendously when backing because she can see the curb. Just a thought

I don't think mine has this option! I'd love to have this even for myself, I always have to pick myself up and move around to see everywhere in the mirrors. Maybe I just need a flash from the dealer? I noticed I don't have oil temp and oil pressure and maybe other options on the evic that my brothers 2011 express has...

It couldn't hurt to ask your dealer if they can flash it to your truck. I don't know if it can be done
