I have a 00 ex, On the hwy the best I have ever got was a little over 14. Towing ft enclosed trailer with 2 ata 16v's I usually get just under 10, ( 9.7 ) Thats usually going around 80 though. I always have good intentions to stay easy but it never stays that way. Around the city I am getting around 11, A little better if not frequent stopping and going, a little worse in heavy traffic. Hope this helps.
I got 14 on a trip to Las Vegas and back ... lotsa 80 MPH driving though. Typically get 15 hwy, 11 around town, and 11.3 towing a 5,600# car trailer from southeast VA to Carlisle, PA and back (through the Appalachians).
We just took a 1500 mile trip to Florida and we got 16mpg in our 2000 limited 4x4 using regular unleaded gasoline. I was very pleased to get that kind of mileage. It was 99% highway miles at 70mph. We are going back in October but we will be towing our 28ft Travel Trailer. I'm curious as to how much the mileage will drop, we've never towed the trailer that far.
BTW, I usually get around 11.5 to 12mpg around town.
I'm getting 10.3 around town. Haven't really driven it on the hway lately. I do have a Flowmaster Exhaust, and BBK 62mm Throttle body. I actually saw the mileage increase 1 mpg when I drilled the hole in front of air box intake.
One time we took a trip which was mostly highway miles in a head wind and driving at or just above the speed limit and we averaged 13.4. it was 13. something I just can't recall what. My point is the truck said we were getting 12.7 or something like that. I recall it being almost a mile off. I had topped off the tank and reset the trip odmeter and when we filled up again I did the math myself and that's what I came up with.
I get 10 MPG's around town and about 8 towing my 28' enclosed racecar trailer. I got about 13 on the highway. V-10, 4.30 reargears. Seems that the 3.73 managed to get a little more MPG's. But I like the 4.30's better.
