Default Real mpg

I sold my lovely 470 last year and couldn't be more regret.

So now I am considering the new 460 LUX+ML.

Just want to hear from you guys what's the real MPG.

FYI I move to Chicago now so city driving for the most time.

Thanks!

P.S. any advice on negotiating price will be very helpful.

I do mostly stop and go driving on a 50 MPH local shopping type highway with many lights. I always average 16.5 a tank. I have gotten as good as 22 MPG on a trip but 16.5 is my per tank average with normal driving, but I do have a heavy foot at times.

I think you would be pretty safe assuming the MPG is +/- about the same as your 470, should be slightly better in most cases.

15 -16 in town, 21-22 loaded with stuff on trips - 17 overall. Calculated myself other than believing display because my 4runner and Sequoia both lied to me! My mi league is just about what my sticker said it would be.

Wow 17-18 around town, you must be babying that truck. Sounds like your wife runs it like I do

In the summer, I'm getting 15-16 MPG in city driving. In the winter, mileage wasn't as good with cold weather and winter blend fuel. I run Mobil 93 octane premium.

Almost 6k miles, tow a boat and snowmobile, do around town driving mostly and fast highway, not crazy driver but not babying it. 16.5 mpg since new as calculated by truck. I can see summer gas beginning to boost the number, I think.

About the same for me. I just don't think about it anymore, these are not efficient vehicles.

I have averaged 16.2 mpg during my first 400 miles. 50/50 mix of city and highway driving.
