I have about 8500 miles on it now. So far I've been very pleased. It tows my 23' center console boat without issue and the fuel mileage is pretty good.

I hand calculated my mileage for the first 7000 miles. The DIC shows 1 mpg "happy" every time versus the hand calculations.

Lifetime mileage is 24-25 mpg. This is 70% in town and 30% interstate driving with several 100 mile round trips towing the boat.

On a long interstate run I consistently get 30-32 mpg depending on whether I drive 70-75 mph.

I did take a 100 mile trip on back roads with a few red lights along the way. Average speed was 60 mph and the truck was showing 35 mpg on the DIC which would be actual 34.

For a mid sized truck it's a stout platform.
