Ridgeline Rookie: I haven't driven the truck for a full tank, so I can't tell you what it's capable of.

Note that the figures in the graph are taken from bi-directional runs of about 1.6 km each way.

But I'd say you could easily beat 20 mpg for a highway tank, not even using any special driving techniques. You just have to keep the speed down.
