Wow I'm lucky if I hit 430km per tank. But I haven't even had my truck for three months yet and I do a lot of off road

18mpg city/ 23mpg highway are the best I have had. Most of the time I average much worse but I have been behaving lately.

Last summer I got 29.0 and last two tanks have been 28.7 and 28.1, and I think that's pretty good for an automatic - Driving is usually 75% highway.

true, but if it's really bad, something is making it bad. i keep track for maint. more then anything. once i start getting bad milage, i'll look into changing plugs or o2 sensor. things like that.

Damn wish I was getting the mileage some of you are getting. I usually get around 250 miles to 16 gallons of gas. Which is about 15.5 mpg city/hwy driving. It's more than likely my driving habits and the fact I think my spark plugs need gaped, the previous owner replaced them but the gap looked to big when I pulled one.
