2014 Chevrolet Silverado: Fuel Economy Gauge

February 25, 2014

2014 Chevrolet Silverado

This picture shows the fuel economy gauge in our long-term 2014 Chevy Silverado. It's a useful little sucker. Especially for me. You see, my commute to work is 53 miles, 52 of which are on the freeway. That means I can see how I've done on the trip when I get there. This was a pretty good run.

Now this is only a small look at a big picture, but it's good to get an idea how I've done on that particular route and it's good for comparing runs. Our best single tank in the Silverado through January is 21.0 mpg. The EPA rates our truck at 23 mpg on the highway.

    Your best single tank is 21 mpg, yet the truck is reporting your best fuel economy at 27 mpg? That's awfully optimistic.

    Best may be by trip/ignition cycle. Not sure.
