Default 31 mpg!

I have an all stock 2013 V6 and I know that this is fairly typical highway gas mileage for these cars....but I was still excited to get 31 mpg! Took a short trip last weekend that was mostly on I-10 in southern Arizona with mostly flat grades so the conditions were good. Went 185.4 miles/5.97 gal.
Might have to treat Sally to a new pair of shoes.

No offense, but what the heck did you do to that photo? I swear it looks like a scale model car on a landscape set that someone made in their hobby room at home. It reminds me of model train landscaping with the little fake trees and the such.

Assuming that's pump-to-pump and hand calculated, superb!

Thank you Nuke.
It was pump-to-pump (going back to the same pump) and hand calculated.

Lol! No offense taken. Funny you should mention that. Getting off on a tangent here but I recently downloaded foto editing software called Fotor. One of the tools it has is to narrow the depth of field and right away I also noticed that when using this tool cars/trucks ended up looking like toys. I got a kick out of the effect.
Here is another one for you from that same trip, it looks like a row of toy trucks...

Would you believe my 10-sec 2011 5.0 gets 31.7 MPGs on the highway? That's with 3.73s. It pulled 32.3 on the stock 3.31 gear, but it wouldn't run 10s.

Fuel economy was verified with mileage calculation in addition to dash guage.

NO! You would have to show me. Maybe at 45mph one way down hill but not at 70mph on level ground.
