I have had the truck for less than a month, but have 1000 miles on it. My ligpfetime average is 19 or 20 mpg on the lie-o-meter. I did hand calculate a tank, I think the dash said 19.2 and hand calculation was like 18.45.
My lifetime mpg is about 15mpg. That's converting from metric (liters per 100kms). But it ranges from 9mpg with trailer, to 25 mpg driving on flat road with no a/c. Seems like the ratings aren't very real world accurate.

They never have been. The EPA drive cycle bears little resemblance to the way real people drive and they rely on the manufacturer to test their vehicles against those fantasy standards. Sort of like asking the fox to provide a count of the number of chicken in the hen house.
