It appears there is confusion in determining fuel mileage.
The best way I have found to determine this is as follows;
(1) Fill up your truck until the pump cuts off,
(2) record your mileage and start driving around town
(drive normal and dont "dog it"),
(3)after 1/4 to 1/2 a tank (it doesn't matter how far you
drive, it will still be the same math), fill up at the
same station and pump as before,
(4) record the # of gallons it took to fill up,
(5) divide the miles driven by the gallons you pumped.
This will be your mileage. You can do this a few time and average them to get a good determination of your mpg. Repeat the process for highway mileage! I did this and got 16.1 mpg city on my X.
Gee, been doing it like that longer than you have been alive. But thanks anyway.
