The best MPG's I ever got was a little over 15. I filled up, drove 20 miles as easily as I could and refilled; completely impractical.

I average around 11-13 as long as I keep WOT down to less than two miles or five stop signs. Any lights and sirens runs means I get less than 10 MPG. I had to do an accross county run (about 40 miles) and got around 7 MPG.

In the CVPI, getting 15-16 wasn't worth getting excited about (it happened several times). 13-14 was daily. The worst I would get was around 9-10 with a lot of hot runs. The Tahoe PPV can't touch the CVPI for fuel mileage.
