    Have had mine for about 5 months now. Just last week realized there was an onboard computer that had been calculating my mileage all along. In about 7,000 miles of mostly in town driving, with a few short (60 mile) trips, it had been averaging 18.3 MPG. Took it on its first long trip over Christmas...about 900 miles round trip, lots of long hills to climb (drove from South Carolina, up through the mountains of Western NC and TN, through VA and into WV and back) with the cruise set on 75 most of the trip, and average 19.9.

    Almost at 3,000 miles got the vehicle in September, it isn't my daily driver yet. To date probably at about 70% highway, 30% around town as of today currently reading 20.8 MPG. I don't drive like an "old lady" but I don't beat on it either.

    Automatics & high factory axle ratios make for some piss poor mpg's. Leaving tonight to head back to So Cal. with a different lighter trailer. Will check mpg too.

    I've never reset the mpg indicator since I got my truck.

    I read 18.1 consistently for the first 6 months of ownership. The last two months it has read 16.9. I assume this is because I haven't taken any road trips lately (all city miles) + winter blend gas and some 4wd.

    2018 SR5 4X4, 6000 miles.......computer currently reading 19.7 for the lifetime of my use of the ride for all types of driving. I have not towed anything and I haven't reset the mpg computer after any fill-up, only the trip odometer. When I typically do the math after a fill-up I am getting between 20-21.

    Last tank was 17.9, a mix of all kinds of driving. Winter conditions. I'm hoping to see closer to 20 in summer.

    As of 16,757 miles my average is 21.38mpg overall. It has taken a 2mpg (20.6, 20.4 were my last two tanks) hit this winter compared to summer. Use non-ethenol 87.

    MT. to So Cal. 14.1 with an empty 6x10 enclosed v-nose cargo trailer. Still in S4 most of the way. S5 or D was a waste of pedal pressure. This was realtime mpg. The dash readout was always 15.6. Mind games.
