...Jeez!
Get a new gasket and head, and you could get 30mpg!

Okay, my stats are, since my last fillup:
Average MPG: 21.1mpg; Average Miles/Fillup: 322.0mi; Average $/Gal paid: $3.112; Average Miles/Day: 62.9mi; Total $ on Gas: $4,699.55

Since I got the truck in Oct of 2010 to my last fillup.

Yes, I'm **** about keeping track.

Yeah my little 2.5L gets like 280-310 miles a tank on about 16 gallons so a little under 18mpg and that's mostly crazy stop and go 5 pm traffic on oversized tires.

After some hard driving I got 24mpg when I filled up the other day. I used to only get 22, then randomly I started getting between 23 and 26 on a really good day. Not sure what happened!
