Love my 08' RR SC - what kind of city milage are you getting...?

Truck runs great. Joy to drive. Quiet, fast, love it - - - -but gas milage seems rather low in daily Pentagon/Beltway commute. Is 10 mpg city about average??? Am not running A/C on - can't imagine hot weather city driving! Maybe I just have not figured out the MPG display system yet. I put 10 gallons of 93 octane in it last night and honestly seems to get LESS gas milage??? Admittedly I use the Sport mode every now and then:^) Have not had a good road trip yet, but might this weekend - driving from Fairfax VA to Irwin, PA via RT 70, 76 etc. - 4hrs each way.

I do mostly short trips around Reston/Herndon, which I know kills mileage, and the daily run to Ashburn (preschool). and the computer has me pegged at 13.7mpg. Winery weekends I see as high as 17-18 if I keep it under 70 on 66. I can imagine if you are doing a lot of beltway crawl that would really kill the mileage.

I'm getting 10.5 mpg (according to the computer) in town through pretty constant traffic, with occasional spirited bursts.

...yes, spirited bursts in 'Sport' mode...
