Thanks, that's really good news
Just note that the 24 is more common than the 30. Recently though I've been able to reliably get mid to high 20s and some just above 30mpg (like 30.8). I do feel like on longer trips I would average closer to upper-mid 20s. My 2.7l in my '17 I could easily get 30mpg+ when I had to drive to Tampa for work (88 miles, half interstate/toll roads), but I always got 16 in town in that truck. The 3.5l definitely does horrible under about 40mph as far as mpg goes.

Also note I live in FL and I honestly feel we get the inverse of the winter effect here. I tend to get better mileage in the winter here than I do in the summer. The cooler (not cold) air seems to result in better mileage for me so I expect that to go up. I just got my truck in March so it's only been used for the most part in heat.

Here is a recent trip back from the vet 10 miles away

I’m at 23.1 for the life of the truck in my 21 PB Lariat. I’m at 18,800 miles. Most of my daily driving sees about 25-26 mpg. My electric miles are about 30% of the total miles.
for over 400 horsies and almost 600 lb/ft of torque on a very heavy vehicle that’s just mind blowing.

With my camper I was getting 18-19 mpg. Worse at speeds greater than 60 mph. Since taking the slide in camper off for the season, averaging 24-25 mpg on my way to work, mixed city and highway driving.

Have you noticed how far you can drive in electric only, before the gas engine kicks in?

I think I did about a mile or so in the past. I don’t think I ever actually measured it accurately. I used to try to coax it into electric but I have much better results just driving as normal.

Fuel logs over the last year. At 6k I ditched the Hankook junk for Michelin, other than towing the average mileage is getting better over time. No complaints, my last F-150 got 11 no matter how you drove it ;)

23 mpg over the first 25k on factory tires. Almost 20 since switching to Nitto RG 295/60/20. Heavy LT all terrain tires will hammer your mileage, ESPECIALLY on short trips.
