if the hours are around 1/3 of the mileage thats normal. 700 hours=21,000 miles as an example. thats seems about right

avg speed looks to be 27.3 mph (43.7km/hr) so it's not too bad, it didn't spend its time hauling down the highway.

My truck has 3,955 hours and 96,000 miles. Average speed 24.27

I wouln't worry about the hours on that truck, it has a better average speed than mine :( .

1 hour idling is equivalent to 33 miles of driving.
Interesting stat... Where does that come from?

I'm thinking the higher the average speed the better (less stop and go)? However, you have no way to gauge what loads those hours/miles were under.

’03 and up with the DIC will have it in there. If you don’t have DIC, push in the trip set twice.

BTW, I have 89k on my 03, about 3100 hrs.

I am averaging about 42 to 43 miles per hour. I drive a lot of long distances, including interstate.

I assume you meant 1/30 the mileage, since 700 X 30=21,000:D

1/3 would be 3 MPH.

i checked my mileage and my hours today. mine came out to be approx 2500 hrs and approx 58000 miles. if i do your calculations i have more hours than miles. should be around 75k for miles. is that a bad thing??

For whatever its worth. My 04 has 88550 miles and 2693.3 for hours. I ran oversized tires without a speedometer correction for over a year. Not sure if the odometer was correct or not. But assuming it was i guess the math would say i did 32.87 for an average speed.
