Mileage

This would be why you need to hand calculate your mileage....This was about an 80 mile trip cruising at 80-90mph.Screw that I'm gettin 53.7mpg. Judging by the fuel gauge I'm guessing when I hand calculate I'll get my usual 15-17mpg.

This was about 60 miles into it when I got stopped behind an accident.


This was after I finally got pulled in the driveway.

Re: Mileage

Hand calcutated at the pump is the only way and even then you have to fill to the brim everytime and also have to make sure your speedo is dead on. my truck is gettin bout 19 now round here and i think thats real good. but i do baby it a lot at lights and stop sighns
