I was getting 340 miles at 26.2mpg with the stock wheels and tires.

That dropped to 210 miles at 12.5mpg with the addition of 31's

That is very very bad! what gears are you running? 3.27? time for a regear! the money you save on gas would pay for it's self in no time.

I thought 3.45's were the tallest the 94-97 2.3's came with. Or at least that's what my truck has, and I really couldn't imagine anything taller than what I have, it would really be a pooch lol

With 4.10s and 31s I get 20-22mpg depending on rather I rawhide her or not. 4.10s and 31s feels like a turtle sometimes then others it feels just right. Sounds like yall guys getting below 20 need to regear, badly.

I get 18.34 MPG on a 2.3 automatic Ranger, all city driving.

On the highway the best I got was 31 MPG.

I fill up approx every 200 miles whether it needs it or not. Doesn't cost so much that way. I can fill up for about $20.00.

well I can get about 340 miles to my tank when the light comes on (I think it is a 15g tank), but I try not to get below 1/4, so its usually around 250 at the 1/4 mark. but since I put my 31's on my mpg has dropped to 19... i want my twenties back :(

I'm averaging 21 mostly city driving, and in my town that's a lot of stopping plus I step on the gas a lot.

I usually fill up when the gas light comes on (it comes on really early, so I have like 3.5 gal left in the tank). For the 13.5 gal I use, I get about 360 miles give or take 20-40 miles depending on weather/driving habits. I have a lift and 32" tires. I average about 25-26 mpg, but have gotten as low as 23 mpg when hauling TONS of stuff going about 75-80, and as high as 28 mpg. (all calculations done per fill up). Oh, I have 4.56 gears.
