What I don't understand is whenever I went to look at the new diesels (all the way back to 01) they never posted fuel millage for them. Why is that? As for the above On any trip over 100miles I get an average of 23MPG and on shorter trips it's about 18.

Because the EPA regs do not govern vehicles above a certain weight rating. These 3/4 and 1 ton rigs are all effectively classed as commercial.

Yep, they figure if you are gonna buy an HD truck, you want power and capability and fuel efficiency isn't as big a deal.
