Diesel Dave and others, I just logged my first 'official EcoModder' fill-up in the fuel log after a trip from home (PA) to Upstate NY. The previous full-up was stopped after the nozzel click off the first time (baseline), this fillup I did the same, to be consistent. 375.4 miles @ 16.84 gals = 22.29 mpg. Empty w/hard tonneau (I usually have the tonneau or cab high cap on)
I know fuel logging and tracking economy is a marathon not a sprint, but a good number to start off with. Next one should be down quite a bit as I've already hauled a bed full of split hardwood, and 2 trips to lowes with a decent amount of sheetrock...all city driving.
