Pickup trucks achieve between 15 and 19 miles per gallon using regular gas. Many pickup trucks also run on E85 ethanol fuel; the average fuel efficiency for this type of fuel is 10 to 13 miles per gallon.
Pickup trucks vary greatly in their fuel efficiency depending on the material used to build the vehicle's body. For example, the Ford F-150 is made with aluminum as of 2015 and gets much better gas mileage than the rest of the pickup trucks sold in America. The Toyota Tundra pickup gets 15 miles per gallon, the Dodge Ram and Chevy Silverado get 19 miles per gallon, the Ford F-150 gets 20 miles per gallon, and the GMC Sierra gets 18 miles per gallon.
