Sigh. I was driving when those numbers were taken. We sent Pickuptrucks a correction but they didn't change the table. The 40 mph reading was in 5th gear, not 6th. That's why it's lower mpg than 45 mph.

I was very impressed with how the loaded truck could hold top gear right at 45 mph even climbing hills with a full load. It just spun up the turbos and boosted the power while keeping rpm down at 1200. Nice!
