Please tell me it gets better!

I have a 5.6L with ~800 miles now. Last tank I ran 277 miles before the fuel light came on and mpg showed 13.6 on the computer but hand calculated at 12.7. This was about 30% highway 70% city. Driving very conservatively, never got above 70 mph and 2000 rpm. This same mix of driving would net 15 mpg in my 2015 Titan. Please tell me it gets better than this.

Summer blend gas will help but you are driving a heavier truck with basically the same motor as your 1st Gen. Don't expect much more.

Well the XD weighs like 50% more so... no? Did you not look before you bought it? First google result indicated 14 MPG

if you have a diesel you will see improvement after 10k miles but not the gas

Actually I did look. Severel people reported around 16 highway, which I am not getting anywhere close. With the cruse set at 68 in the XD best I have seen was 14 mpg, my 2015 would get 16.5 set at 68 on the same road. My XD only weighs 840 lbs more than my 2015. I figured that since the engine has better HP and torque it would get at least close to the same.

The 5.6 XD loves the city, she'll drink like a fish through it


Any mods done to it (Lift, Tire swap, etc.) ? If so, that can explain a hit. If you don't have a bed cover, look into one. Also, it still on stock tires, what PSI are you running? 70 is about right and the best all around from me playing w/ mine.


Before swapping into a Diesel, I was getting 11-13 city and 16 Hwy. When I first got it, I would see 17hwy w/ the right wind and that was around 60-65mph. Once I added my RC leveling kit and upgraded to 275/70 Toyo MT's, that dropped to around 15.
