I think the average MPG on my dash takes into account about the last 500 miles or so, currently its at 23.3 but I've done a fair amount of highway miles in the last week.
I have done mostly city driving myself due to the short commute that I have these days. I have averaged 18.5 to 19.5 mpg for my weekly round trips to the office. I made a trip to Lake Charles Saturday and returned to Houston on Sunday and I averaged 23.6 on the highway and most of that was 70 to 75 mph driving due to the recent speed limit changes. I imagine my next trip to New Orleans will be 25 mpg or better. It generally takes me three weeks to need a to gas up up and I generally do that with a quarter tank remaining. My truck came with the 32 gallon tank. I generally put 25 to 26 gallons in at the pump.

I traveled from the Texas City / La Marque area to Austin Texas for a few days and drove around Austin while I was there and traveled back yesterday on the same tank of gas and averaged 23.6 mpg average of city/hwy driving and had construction detours as well as some 75 mph speed zones. This also includes the whole back cab area filled with luggage and the wife's shopping items. See the picture below of the gas mileage.

Is the stock exhaust an offset to center or a center to offset?
Also is the Flowmaster an offset to center or a center to center or a center to offset?

The Flowmaster is center input with dual output that currently have 12 inch pipes coming out of it. I may dual it completely out. I haven't decided yet.
