Well since there hasn't been an abundance of response, I'll give another bump and say that I am 2wd and have a quad cab, but I get a minimum of 19 or 20 mpg hwy. If I cruise at 65mph I've done as good as 22.5mpg avg on a trip.

When I drove from Norfolk, Va to Pheonix, AZ in July, I took US-58 to I-95 to I-40, through TN mind you, I averaged 19mpg there. 13.5 on the way back with a trailer full of household goods. I avg about 14 mpg here in the greater Hampton Roads area of VA.

Mine rarely sees the hwy. I get about 11 in town, and the best ive gotten on the hwy is 15, and that was pulling a trailer. Its only been on the hwy twice, and both times i was either pulling a trailer, or had a bed full of junk.

I get about 15 on average mixed driving. just around town, like 11! The Highway mileage is totally affected by speed. If I drive 65, it will get 18-19

When the 2009 first came out the reviews mostly claimed that there is hardly any difference so why not get the 5.7. I think by reading concerns and folks personal reflections on mpg it is gearing, Cab size 2 or 4 wheel drive that makes the difference. Also driving habits will reflect results. Some seem to get really good mpg will others say with the same truck that is not possible. I am happy with my truck 11, 12 driving in traffic lights and stop go traffic makes a great difference highway driving mostly 18, 19, have seen 21 on the evic.

I have a 5.7L. I get 17 to 18 strictly highway @ 70 to 75 MPH. Around town, 15 to 16 MPH. I also might add that I have a very light right foot.

I get about 18 ltr per 100km in mixed driving and about 13.5 on the hywy. Avaraged 16.5 on a moose hunt with the truck full of gear and pulling a trailer with an ATV on it. I am happy with my mpg and the power available from my engine its the price per ltr on the gas pump thats the problem
