    That was a 1,000 miles of Baja. Low tire pressure to be expected.

    Damn.... I'm used to filling my Scab and it says somewhere around 400 miles to empty.

    Filled the new FX4 and it said 697 to empty. I need a bigger tank on the Scab.....

    50,000 mile MPG reading

    Went on a sage rat shoot in SE Idaho last week. Noted the miles per gallon as it's just about to hit 50,000 mile, 2012 scab.

    Mileage has never been reset. It's sitting on 15.1. That includes over 10,000 miles of heavy towing and much of that has been at high freeway speeds (trip on those was around 12).

    On the way home, I pushed the trip reset. This was 383 miles of mostly freeway at 70 mph. It included several mountain pass' at over 4000 ft and virtually no flat land. When I hit town, and the gas pump, it was sitting on 16.7.

    Side note, I scared the crap out of my shooting partner, as usual, he's not a car guy. We were way out on BLM land. Back country washed out rough roads which haven't had their spring grading yet. I told him this is what this truck loves and hit the metal. I think it will take some work to get the pucker marks out of the passenger seat leather.....

    I think my fuel consumption graphic display is trying to tell me something about my concern for only averaging 12.7 mpg...

    I need to get out more.
    I have faithfully been scorned for the last 18 months that Raptor owners in no way care about MPG.

    Now, I see that concern about mpg is present in Jennifer forum. going all the way back to 2010!

    Funny to see the “OG” discussing the same thing “OG” complain about in Jenny forums.

    I think @sydude ’s Rap is saying ‘enough with the commuting, let’s send it already’ :biggrin:
