Now that these trucks are starting to land, be sure to let us know what type of fuel mileage your getting.

I've got 4x4 longhorn 6 4 bed 3 55 gears.no air suspension.900 miles about a hundred a day.my computers says 23.4 hand calculated 22.2.i drive highway with steep hills and windy curves at 55mph.3200 ft elevation down to sea level both ways.and then some city and flat roads.with my 5.9 04 I averaged 13.5 so I'm happy.really happy truck drives like a dream!hopefully I can get my average to 23. Guess I can't get aggressive tires or level it.

I use my truck(quad cab 4x4) to commute to/from work daily, mainly highway miles rolling at 110-115kilometres(65-68 miles per hour). I've logged 3515 kilometres(2184 miles) in just under a month of ownership. My average overall fuel consumption is 8.3 litres/100 kilometres or 28 miles per gallon. The truck is super comfortable and I'm really impressed with the fuel mileage to date.

1200 miles and averaging 25.8 mpg in about 50/50 city/hwy. At 70 mph, I am getting 29-30. At 45 mph, I am getting about 32. It got better after I added the Roll-N-Lock tonneau cover. There is another thread that states Consumer Reports and Myth Busters got worse mileage with a tonneau on than without. I will take my real world experience any day.

City driving I get 24MPG and HWY 28MPG. I discovered that our trucks love Shell V-power Diesel fuel. My next fill up I am adding a diesel additive to boost the cetane level 4 more points.
