Re: V8 highway gas mileage

highway mileage is right at 20mpg for me. town is around 12mpg.

I towed 3 dirt bikes about an hour on Sunday to go riding with my kids and got just over 19mpg when towing on the highway, I am happy with that.

Re: V8 highway gas mileage

I just got back from a trip from Oakland to LA and I was averaging 22+MPG going 75mph. (the fuel economy bar was all the way to the right) I was stoked to have made it on one tank.... I noticed that the key was to keep the adaptive cruse control on. It seemed to be in eco mode all the time while in cruise control. Over the grapevine, it was down to 13MPG and in the city I am getting about 15MPG. I am at 2750 miles now.

Re: V8 highway gas mileage

19 mpg most of the weekend with a mixture of driving speeds, roads and some stiff head winds.
