    2017 CM 5.7. I get 16ish. Light foot, mix of traffic, suburbs, and highway. Goes up or down depending on the mix of driving. Bilstein 6112s in the front to level it, otherwise stock.

    On my 3 mile commute to work the truck never really warms up and I average 9–11 mpg. On the highway I average 15 to 18 mpg, I can get a little better if I really keep my foot out of it. Also depends on how much weight I’m carrying in the truck as well as headwind. I’m sure I could get better in the city too but I love the sound of my exhaust.

    Stock ride height and tires.

    Same short drive to work pretty conservative but I do also love the exhaust... Level kit... Stock tires about 70% maybe more is city driving

    I only get 12.8 mpg on the city streets commute to work. Was 13.3 mpg on freeway when I did a road trip from Seattle to Idaho lol. Noticed a slight difference when I added the spray bed liner and Tonneau cover, it decreased by .2

    It's odd the tonneau caused a decrease. My 2010 has a solid ARE. I wonder if it's causing a decrease also.

    It makes sense that the tonneau would decrease gas mileage. driving with the gate down does as well. The aero on the truck is designed to have the air circle in the bed, disrupting that actually adds drag

    My 17 Crew Max Limited is only 7 months and about 6,000 mileage today. When I first bought it I swear the MPG says 13.1 before the Tonneau was installed.
