Okay so I bought my truck about a 6 weeks ago...it had an average mileage of 10.1 and now has 10.6. I do 90% city driving...

My 03 Escalade used to avg. 13.5 city..

Question: Does it ever cycle thru and update avg MPG's? I recently tuned her up changed all filters, etc. I don't drive it like a hotrod..

I reset my mileage and average mpg at every fill up(if you don't reset the average mpg it stays the same

That's what I get, around 10.5 mpg city driving. I do however have 24inch wheels and a big heavy speaker box in my bed.

Of course if you haul heavy stuff in the back like I have been doing lately(recently got a crt projector for my home theater) you want to take it easy(though with a load it won't help with the mpg one bit)

Here is the website I got my projector from
www.curtpalme.com
I would have a party but I don't have a big enough space for a large crowd
But I do love the picture from the projector(I was afraid it wouldn't fit in the back of my truck) I have a picture it in the crate in the back of my truck it barely fit
