Road Trip!

Just completed the first real road trip in my truck.

Total Miles= 2622.9
Fuel consumed= 142.458
Average MPG= 18.4
Average speed= 64.8
Seat time= 40 hours 26 minutes
Total cost of fuel= 447.48
Average paid for fuel= 3.14
Regens=1
DEF= No fill ups, Filled up before i left and it still hasn't come off full
Truck= 2017 TitanXD SV bought new August of 2018 current mileage is 12,884. The only mod is i added the trans thermostat. Trans temp was a consistent 158 unless sitting is traffic then it would get up to 165-170.

After this trip i feel comfortable giving my opinion of this truck. I really like the truck, it is very comfortable. I have no complaints about the fuel mileage, better than the frontier I traded in and way better than my silverado I had before that. My only real complaint is the plastic around the window, is super hard and that is where i rest my elbow while driving and after a full day of driving my elbow gets sore. I may try to make a pillow or something to put there before the next long trip. One of my concerns before buying a diesel was finding fuel on trips, this was not an issue at all. We would easily go 350-400 miles before stopping. I never ended up putting more than about 19.5 gallons at one time in. 400 miles I'm ready to stop anyway. I do use Hotshots EDT at every fill up, not sure of this helped at all or not. I also learned that if the speed limit is 75 prepare yourself for a whole lot of nothing! Overall I have no regrets buying this truck, hope it lasts a long time.

When all is said and done, more is said than done.

Glad to hear you're enjoying it so far! You said your avg MPG was 18, what was your avg MPH? Also I assume this isnt pulling anything right?

Correct average MPH is average speed. I had the cruise set at 75 for the vast majority of the trip but sitting in traffic around Chicago really brought the average down. No I was not towing anything.
