Thinking about buying a pickup? Here's some interesting information on what gas mileage to realistically expect.

Any testing requires careful procedures if the results are going to mean anything. Here’s the what PickupTrucks.com did. “We used consistent methodology to ensure accurate results as much as possible. Our drivers for this test were divided into two groups. One group did all the driving for the towing, and the other for the unloaded trucks. The drivers rotated through each truck along the route to account for differences in driving style and driver weight. The routes were driven with consistent conditions: air conditioning on, cruise control off, Eco modes disabled and the windows up. After each loop, the trucks were all refilled from the same gas pump using the double-click method to ensure a consistent cutoff point.”
