I just can't back from a trip from va-Iowa-va in a little over 4 days. 31 total driving hours. I was hoping for a little better mileage but I was fighting a 15mph headwind the entire way out. Plus those **** west Virginia mountains can kill some mileage. I also had the bed full of luggage and stuff. And 4 adults. So I guess 16.9 mpg wasn't that bad.

Am I reading the EVIC correctly and you have an aggregate 17.8MPG over 6,733 miles? If so, that is significantly better mileage than I am getting over the first 1,000 miles I've owned my truck, which is 12.9 MPG.

Were you mostly travelling on the highway and country roads? Yeah highway (70 & 74) most of the way except in the mountains

17.8 is just for the current tank. But I was able to get 18.3 for one tank including 85mph runs on flat ground.

That's pretty good. What is your driving like normally, in terms of terrain, heavy foot, how much weight you are carrying?

West of Columbus was flat and east was mostly mountains. I was pretty easy on it 70-73 but my uncle had a heavy foot. 85-90. I had the bed full of luggage and random stuff the grandparents gave me but nothing super heavy. I think what hurt the most was the 15mph headwind the entire way out.
