A lot of highway miles with about 500 pounds worth of hunting and camping gear in the bed and cab. About 32 miles of dirt roads and 4x4 trails getting into and out of hunting camp.

Unusually good mpg for the truck.

Missed two tanks worth of data because the GF used the truck and didn't reset the odometer or record the gallons. Numerous trips to HD for cinder block, concrete, and the nursery for compost and top soil. Not too many easy miles.

After using the truck for a couple days including one nasty, snowy commute I decided to top it up. I hadn't filled it in several months because of a lack of use.

Truck used like a truck this tank. Several trips to the lumber yard, one load included 20 bags of quikcrete, the GF drove for a few days.

Put on new rear tires toward the end of the tank and finally bought a spare wheel. Tires are heavy load mud and snow tires (10 ply) purchased for function over mpg considerations. On the positive side, the sidewall is rated to 80psi, but running them at 55psi to extend wear life.

Two trips over to Summit County for hunting, a couple runs to Broomfield. More load-free travel than usual and lots of highway miles. Very good tank, considering most are 14-16 with some as low as 12mpg.
