Welcome, I would say it appears to be living up to the expectations. We are on the second tank of fuel...456miles and put in 18.3 gals = 24.9 average, slightly more hwy than city but this includes routine stop and go traffic...it's really close to the avg shown on the display. The instant mileage shows us between 28-29 at 70 mph. We have a trip coming up weekend after memorial day and will see how it tows with a 25' trailer (7800 lbs gross, 900 lb tounge weight). Are you planning on towing for your weekend getaways?
