2005 Dodge 4X4 extended cab short bed. We get 12 to 14 highway pulling 30 foot Cardnal TT 20 + with no trailer and normal speeds. Love the Cummins, good mileage and no blue juice.

2010 Tundra Crewmax 5.7 - avg 17-19 not towing and 8-10 towing our SPT 295. Was really hoping for more with my good mileage in normal driving. I pulled my in-laws PUP one trip and got around 13.

That mileage would be great if that is what you get all of the time. I have gotten that kinda mileage according to my ScanGauge on certain flat sections of road at 55-60 mph with no stops and little wind. But that is not what I consider my mileage to be. There are traffic tie ups, hills and mountains, stop lights, hooking up and unhooking, etc. that just eat up mileage. I am very happy when I get over 10.5 mpg, and usually manage that, and up to 11.5 with some fill-ups while towing. Fill-ups is the word, and over several tanks to make sure things average out. You can't just rely on the onboard "lie-o-meter". Even if you filled up over just 75 miles and calculated on that, how can you be assured that the tank is filled to the exact same spot each time ??

If you have an onboard computer showing fuel mileage, compare that to your actual calculated mileage during a bunch of fill-ups. Hopefully your computer is calculated correctly, and that mileage over that particular stretch of road you did is accurate.......great if it was.
