Had to make a run to California from Texas. My average mixed driving is about 14.8 but have gotten a little over 16 on a highway trip. Always 1 to 1.5 mpg below EVIC.
Got out past San Antonio on 10 and was facing a 25 mph headwind. Fueled up and calculated 15.6 mpg. Headwind continued to get worse on I to El Paso. Next fuel up 13.8 mpg. Still getting worse with the winds, probably 40mph with 50+ gusts. Next fuel up 13.3 mpg. Finally in Arizona winds became calm after dark. Filled up at Chevron instead of a truck stop. Went 210 miles on 1/4 tank. EVIC was showing 20.2 mpg. Topped off just before entering California, calculated 19.0 mpg! Speeds were averaging 65 to 70 mph.
This was with no trailer, just me and some gear, stock truck. CC DRW 3500 4.10 w/68RFE
Truck seemed to run smoother on the Chevron diesel. Hmmm...wondering if their fuel really is better.
