For full size truck with V8 I get 17-18 mpg in mixed driving. see full Chevrolet Silverado 1500 review

The 5.3L gets an impressive 20mpg on the freeway and with a tonneau, about 21. Mixed driving is about 15-17mpg and purely city driving nets between 14-16mpg. Towing economy is not bad at about 12-13mpg with a light load and 9-11mpg with a heavy load. see full Chevrolet Silverado 1500 review

With the specific gears I have in my truck, I get 20+ MPG on the highway...and I have a crew cab truck. City mileage is right in-line with the EPA of 14, but it is no worse than the others. see full Chevrolet Silverado 1500 review
