2500 SV, V6, with approx. 1000lbs of dog "stuff" and dogs, 19.1MPG on very hilly interstate through CT last weekend. Barely 1k on the odometer, I'm hoping that only gets better as it breaks in. That was keeping it at around 70MPH or below, if I cranked it up to 75-80 the MPG fell way off...

have 2500 miles on mine and have only been getting 13-14 mpg, dealer says its because I'm running the ac, hope it gets better, need the ac at times, but did run it without and the millage was only about a half mile mpg better, dont run much weight and the driving is pretty even city/highway, just gonna wait and see.......

I just picked up a 2012 2500 NV HD SV hightop with the V6. I have less than 1,000 miles on it but had to drive it home from the dealer which was a 400 mile trip. On the highway, I got a little more than 17mpg with the air on. Around town, I am averaging about 15.5 mostly with the air off as it's starting to get cooler around here. I am hoping that it gets better once broken in.

My NV 2500 with the 6 Cyl. Is consistently getting poorer milage hauling about 1400 lbs of parts. Started out at 17.3 now i am at 12.1. Generally driving the same country roads. Makes me think I could of had the power of the V8 with about the same milage.

I hit the 8K mile mark this week. Filled up and took the van down the highway on 100+ mile round trip. Going down I kept my speed @ 65mph and got around 17 mpg. On the way back, I kept it @ 60mph and my mpg went up to 21. This say a lot about the wind resistance I talked about in and earlier post.

I got from 14 to 15 towing 2500 pound toy hauler to south Florida and back to NC with V6 2500 standard roof. Have gotten near 19 not towing. Have 4800 miles on the 2500 now. I drive around 65 towing and not much more when not towing, maybe 70 except when passing.
Around Miami/Ft Lauderdale in stop and go I got 12 to 14 not towing but lots of stops/starts.
By the way Ft Lauderdale must be vying for "stop light camera capital of the world" - they have put cameras at just about every stop light. Would have been nice if they put that money into a computerized system to coordinate the lights to reduce the number of stops and goes!!!!!

First weekend road trip in the new to me nv1500 s low roof , turned 20k this weekend . About 1000lbs of kids , motorcycle , tools , cooler and new puppy ....:). 900 mile round trip mostly freeway @ 55 to 75 , a little semi drafting , frequent rest area stops for the puppys sake and mileage avg. reset when I filled up to start the adventure . And the NV says it averaged 21.9 ! I can't wait to align it correctly and add my trailer hitch and the K&N airfilter that's sitting under my drivers seat waiting to get installed . And then to relearn the ECU's so they learn how I drive , and let her adaptives adopt me . I'm really Impressed with this vehicle so far , I see it being in the family for a long time !

800 miles on my NV2500, about 1500 lbs tools and such, mixed highway and around town. I'm already getting 16.5. I'm hoping it goes up a little with more break-in.
