    Why did you change only 4?

    Does anyone use e85? How much of a loss in MPG do you see?

    Re: What is your AVERAGE ECONOMY in your cluster?

    I've only put about 500 miles on my 2010 AWD since I bought it and was fretting the decrease in mileage since being accustomed to a 1999 Yukon. So far so good though. Mixed I'm showing 16.9 and took a 300 mile trip pulling a 5.5' X 8.5' heavy built utility trailer and still managed 16.1 mixed city/highway. The Yukon could do no better than that!

    I heard many years ago that there is two things a man will likely lie about 1) how many women he's slept with and 2) how many miles a gallon he gets in his truck!

    2011 Platinum Hybrid AWD 32k miles. Averaging 18.3mpg. Mostly around town driving. Just for reference my 2008 F-150 AWD got about 11mpg.

    Re: What is your AVERAGE ECONOMY in your cluster?

    ok, here is my latest. We live in daytona. We went to Key West last week and I got these numbers.

    17.1mpg down to Miami. 75mph or so. We had bad weather, heavy rain and such. Filled up in Miami and on to Key West. Reset DIC with AC on and passengers. Made it to KW and back to Ft Pierce to refuel. 23gals, got 430+ miles. I was watching the DIC and it said 18.7mpg. I did the math, it was 18.7mpg. Now the trick was the Keys stretch is a 55mph and under zone. You can run 65mph here and there but it's almost 300 miles down and back that stretch. No cruise control. Cruise will ruin your MPG. Coming up to overpasses at 75-80mph, it'll drop two gears to hold speed if the grade is steep, which isn't much in flat Fl.

    Re: What is your AVERAGE ECONOMY in your cluster?

    See? it IS possible to get 20+MPG on the highway with these things, you just have to drive carefully. Make sure the tires are at 37-40psi cold, use good 92+ octane fuel (Costco works great), and don't go berserk stomping the throttle passing every car in sight. If you try to keep RPM at 2000 or below when accelerating, you will be amazed at the fuel economy you can achieve. I have trouble believing the mileage I'm getting, but I hand-calculated it and it's real. I can see how people who are frustrated at their poor mileage can have trouble believing what is possible, but having driven mine for the past 108,000 miles, I found what works and what doesn't. I used to have trouble achieving 18 on the highway, but the last two 1000+ mile round trips to the cottage have yielded 21.6 and 21.3. That's pushing the average fuel economy reset button at the start of the trip, going on the trip, then looking at the display when I pull back into the driveway.

    One neat range-improving thing I learned in all of those miles: The fuel tank will take an additional 1.5 gallons after the pump clicks off the first time. If you can slowly flow the fuel in after the first click (some pumps won't do this, and some states have that vapor collector thing that prevents topping up), you can fill it all the way up to the top of the neck to improve your range. My miles to empty display shows 600+ after refilling when I do this.
