Probably why you only get 12 mpgs lol.
Yeah, I suppose the highway drivin does help some. I don't use cruise that often and I tend to drive kinda hard/fast. I'm glad I'm getting what I'm getting.

Lol. I had a Z beat me one time. Otherwise I'm always ahead. The V6 can do a 0-60 in ~7 seconds.

I try to use cruise as much as possible. I would be overjoyed if I was getting 15 mpgs.

I like using cruise but I drive in traffic and people are @ssholes and cut in front of me or tailgate me so it gets knocked off somehow. I'd like to see 18 but I'm more than happy with 15.

I'm not complaining. I'm just saying that I try my best with my driving habits. I know its a truck and I would rather get 12 mpgs driving this than 40 in a civic.
