If you're in the market for a new veterinary practice pickup and you want the lowdown on fuel MPG for your next hot—err, functional—ride, you've come to the right place. Below, you'll find a handy fuel MPG comparison for 2011 and 2012 trucks with long or extended beds. (If you don't need a longer bed, save yourself the $1,000-some dollars). We left off any trucks that don't have MPG ratings.

On the following pages, you'll also get the retail prices for standard-bed and extended-bed trims as well as fuel MPG comparisons. (Note: Trucks pictured may not show the extended- or long-cab option.)
