I am averaging approx 26 MPG (Canadian) on the highway which is not bad considering the truck isnt even broken in and its winter (the truck is rated at 29Mpg) don`t ask what it is in town lol like 15-17MPG

I get around 17.5 at the moment, but I attribute part of that to the fact I put the new bumper on so there is more air resistance. I was getting around 20 all summer.

Mine has not dropped at all. I switched the tuner over to tow when I got the weight in the back for the snow.

exactly lol hence why I put canadian in brackets. It makes it seem like our cars are more economical when you say your smart car is rated at 65 MPG and in the states its rated at like 40 MPG :P

I get 18-19 in the summer and 15-16 in the winter. This is without any weight in the back for the winter.
