This is what the back of my truck looks like daily, I figure it's somewhere around 500 lbs. I'm surprised to see only 1 2015 2.7 with better mileage than in getting(it's at 23.6). I haul 500lbs daily and don't drive like a grandma. I'm in south Florida so I don't have the mpg loss associated with winter blend gas, but I'm wondering why there's so may drastically lower averages?
So there's only roughly a 1.2 MPG difference in the dash readout then? That's pretty good, most are double or triple that. As for the difference in mpg, most of it will be down to either driving style and/or type of journey. There is someone on here with exactly the same car as me getting 83 MPG whereas I'm only getting 60 ish. City V's highway journies cam have huge differences in economy. Just my theory though.
My dash readout was claiming a 24.7ish mpg for a lot of this tank, it dropped to 24.2 yesterday when I dealt with tons of bad drivers. If I would have fueled up yesterday, the dash readout would have been closer to 2 mpg off.
My DTE on this tank is 544, pretty close to the 525 I just squeezed out of the last one.
got gas again today, here are the details:
I drove 540 miles on this tank.
DTE was 15 miles at time of fill up.
Computer claimed 25.2 mpg average this tank.
computer claimed 21.4 gallons used.
Truck actually took 22.50 gallons.
24 mpg hand calculated.
DTE after fill up was 578.
I continue to be impressed. I hope my results end up posting and not labeled an outliar. I have pictures of the dash readouts & gas pump if there's an issue.
So another 1.2 MPG difference dash V's actual, that's pretty damn consistent! What's DTE by the way? I myself am trying to average over 700 miles per tank, working so far, my average over 16,000+ miles is 705
