Several cars from 07 on have the Easter Egg functions. Haven't seen anything for the trucks yet though.

actually its thought out VERY well. !!! think about it. its "convienent" that the avg. mpg isnt seen until you manually scroll through the evic. hmmmm. could they have done this on purpose? maybe to put the horrible gas mileage out of our minds most of the time?? im not a betting man, but i gaurantee you that is the reason.....

Crap! That would suck for me. I get that pulling a 5,000 lb. boat at 70+ MPH with the bed loaded down completely up and down hills. Seriously, I averaged 13.0 MPG this last week pulling from Danvile, KY to La Follette, TN (Lake Norris) with a full load, fuel, beer, food, etc. Enough to stay a week!

Empty it gets 20+ MPG and that's a mixture of town and country driving (about 75 / 25 split with the majority country). Now this not beating on it too hard. I can get it down to 17 - 18 MPG by driving like it was stolen.
