Best I ever got in whitey was 11... Normally it was 8-9mpg. And it was my DD for more then 6 months too! LOL I never did understand why the check engine light was on or why it literally smelled like raw gas out the exhaust with that amazing mileage!!! This new one is pulling 19-20ish around town. It feels like a prius to me now! My yota on 33's with 5.04 gears and a V6 pulls 18mpg around town. LOL It just hurts to fill when empty cause it's usually 30 gallons at a time!

I feel for you Marn. I used to love to drive. Anywhere anytime any distance I was down to drive. Now that I drive all day for work I can't stand it.

I don't need to be happy I'm not that guy, because I am not that guy. I'm not that guy because I took steps to keep myself from being that guy. It's not a chance or a luck thing, it's because I made decisions and took actions.

There is always a chance you could be that guy, or one very similar!

we do sorta get the worst conditions around here. Between the hills, winds, and needing to run the AC 70% of the time. Not a great place to get the best mileage.
