My worst fuel economy was 7 MPG. 1995 Chevy Blazer. Generally, I averaged between 7 and 9 MPG. The computer was completely screwed up.

Somehow I need to know that?

When we need fuel we fuel up, topping off...it is what it is.

In the single digits or below diesel mileage tanks on very short trips, like mid-teens, compared to normal weather average of about 36 mpg (mixed city/highway, mostly city).

11 when I first got the Navigator. It needed TLC. It gets about 15.5 on a typical tank now, and it's gotten as much as 19 on a pure highway trip. It got 18 on a similar trip so I don't believe it was a fluke.
