Proof? About gas mileage? LOL - Seriously?
I can picture it now - someone wrecking their Escalade because they were holding a camera pointing at the display instead of watching the road. Proof that he got 18.9? You probably need to get over yourself. Another thing - it's pretty disrespectful to refer to someone as 'boy' unless they are in fact your son.

Well I didn't think at the time I would need to take a picture of the mpg screen reading 18.9mpg for proof one day becuase some d!ck needed proof but I wish I would have now!

The trip was from lynchburg va to myrtle beach sc which is 340 miles(give or take) and basically flat ground and a constant 75-80 mph on rural roads..... Im not saying I average this with city and highway mixed and Im also not saying I average that all the time highway!!!!! Im just saying on that particular day, with those particular conditions I AVERAGED 18.9 MPG!!!!

I average 13-14 city and 16-17 highway on most occasions! If that helps to explain it any better!!

Do you realise I am born and raised in the south, boy? LOL.

Also, I guess people like you do not need navigation if you are afraid to take your eyes of the road and like luxury said it ...

I am thrilled! Just tracked mine and got 18.1 on the interstate! That was on a 350 mi trip. Loaded with my wife and I, one year old son and vacation luggage! Kept it on 75 and used ethanol free gas...which I have charted and seen 20% MORE mileage w/o ethanol. I'm thrilled!

Umm, 5.3's or 6.0's....quiite a difference folks.

6.0 on 24's getting 18.9mpg at 70+ is pure bullshit.....well maybe if he lets off the gas and hits reset.I can get mine to read 99mpg too.

It will not average 19mpg at 70mpg..no way no how.55mph maybe.
