What kind of gas mileage are you getting?

I'm getting 20 at the moment… and wondering if this is good or bad.

To clarify 20 mpg @ 110km/h this morning

Truck weighs roughly 7,000 pounds on the road.

I get 18mpg staying within the ferries and the shore mtns, commuting to work, getting caught in traffic, doing 120 as often as I can on the highways, and shuttling a few times a week.

3.2L DOHC with a slushbox and a 5500lb vehicle.

18/20 in my 83 Toyota on 35's @ 30psi, 4" lift, 4:10's, Weber carb. No one beleives me, I rarely get the rev's above 2500rpm and the thing cruises at like 1800rpm on the hwy, it has no power so I don't race it around like its fast or something, the only time it gets really bad mileage is over the Malahat because with stock gears its not very hill friendly.

the toyota-I dunno, I never get to drive the damn thing.
7.3L diesel F250 5spd with OD fifth, stockish tires….I pay about $120 to fill both tanks, and get about 8-900km on that. I drive it pretty hard, and carry a good amount of building materials in it most days. Ride's like a little red wagon too until it's got 700lbs or so in the back.

I'm not too sure in my Bronco….6 inch lift, 35's, stock gears, big engine, and a heavy foot. I know it takes close to a quarter tank to drive to Ukee (about 30k). I'm guessing the mpg is in the basement.
It's my DD right now too and it's costing me an arm and a leg at the pumps.

What the hell is a miles per gallon?

I checked my long term this morning, and am hitting 17L/100km.
That's a 4.7L Dakota, with 33", 7" lift, and a bunch of heavy accessories.
