Re: MPG check

What exactly are you asking? Trip odometer is in relation to what? MPG? Gallons of fuel? Tire revolutions? Whats a XLT Lariat? Please clarify so we can help

Re: MPG check

I filled the pickup drove 126.3 miles occording to the trip OD. Crammed in 6.26 gal for mpg check.

19.7 mpg using those numbers.

Mostly highway driving at 75 mph or less.
But like I said I have the tires in my sig vs the stock 265's. Just wonder what adjustments to those numbers are needed for a more accurate read.

XLT Lartiat is about the highest trim level you could get. I think the only thing it doesnt have is the heated seats.
