uggggghh, I'll start by that, and I know this is like talking about the best car wax, but being out of Haverhill ma and traveling to boston at 5am, my average gas mileage is aroing 18-19mpg, and if I hit 21-23, then im not even at 40mph.
Am I crazy or is this the norm.
I tubed it and naturally they are getting way more but in like Vegas!
Anyone else in the same boat or am I crazy....
Oh ya, it 11k on it. new since June.

Considering that you (I assume) are also getting winter weather, you're doing better than I am (stock OR MT with 26570/17 BFG's and a topper). Lately it's been 17-17.5mpg. In the summer I can add about 2mpg.

Thanks,, Ya I was just trying to figure if I was hitting the pedal to quick or something like that as utube videos that I love to watch for popular mods also get into mileage and performance, and always talk about their mileage, and always seem to be better than mine but now I know Its totally norm for the northeast, propabaly the hills n such also huge factors as well.
Thank again..

I think you are actually getting above average mileage.

Definitely right around average, if not a little better.

to put this into reference. I get 12.5mpg all the time.
