I average 11.5-12 in town hand calculated. I usually run in the 80 econo setting and drive like an old man the majority of the time. I dont know if there is something wrong with my truck or if its the 4:10 gears. I do not go over the 2k rpm mark.
My old 99.5 SRW CC 4x4 used to run TS performance in 140HP setting and race around everywhere getting avg of 14-16mpg; how does that work; cant imagine a dually with 4:10's can get that much worse mileage compared to a (srw racing around town).
however I have been told many times that 12 is about right for my truck, just find it hard to believe. I live at 6500' and have many hills, but still I have owned the 99.5 without issues. Might pull the DP tuner and compare it with stock and superchips tuner that came with the truck and see if there is a difference. One reason why i bought the truck is because the guy said he was getting 17MPG, must have been going off liometer which used to read 17, now reads 14-15 but is not accurate. anyways; would love to figure out how to get around 14-16 in town.
