Default If you own a Honda Ridgeline... How does it do on gas mileage for you?

I just purchased a new Honda Ridgeline, RTL model with a tonneau cover and I am quite displeased with the gas mileage. I am averaging 14.5 to 15.3 miles per gallon. Now I didn't expect fuel economy with a truck/SUV vehicle, but I did fully expect to get within the mileage ratings spec of 16 to 21 mpg. Perhaps even as high as 19 or 20 mpg with the tonneau cover eliminating the bed as a major wind drag factor.I do love the truck, but the gas mileage is a major disappointment.

I also am not thrilled with the mileage, considering it only has a v-six in it. My city mileage is about the same as yours. I get just below 20 on the highway. I typically drive with less patience than I should though, so I think I would get the advertised mileage if I didn't accelerate so quickly around town, and didn't pass so much on the highway. I do love the truck, though, especially the ride.
