I wouldn't trust the trip computer cuz mine says I average between 20-23 mph best way fill your truck up drive it x number of miles and divide miles by the number of gallons for accurate mpg. I'm getting about 15-17 in town and 17-20 all highway.

The best I've gotten was a little over 22 MPG trying to stay at just 65 MPG for 4 hours straight (hand calculated) and then another 4 hours back home that day. It's stock...haven't bothered looking at the MPG when pulling the trailer though.
