19.12 Mpg!!!

Lastnight I had over 260 miles on 14 gallons of gas!!! That's the best mileage I've got from my truck since I got it and I did those miles in 2 days!

Just wanted to let everyone know!

I get around 20 mpg with 31's and 4.10 gears. I think that highway I got 23-26 doing around 70-75 coming back from NH. Going up I got worse gas mileage as its all up hill and I haul stuff up there.

I keep track every week i fill up, and i get a constant 20-21 mpg with my 3.0.
That is with my cover off during the summer, and half highway/city driving
Its not bad, wish i got better.

I'll enter this pissing competition with my 21.8mpg recorded this morning. All with a 4.0 with 4.10 gears 3" body lift and 33's.

When I dropped down 5-10mph, I was nearly getting 24mpg... my commute just doesn't usually let me do those speeds.

Going for best mpg with mine. It still has the tune to do, but been getting around 20-21 in town in present shape with exhausts, intake, tonneau cover, and now just added a under drive crank pulley. Hoping to get around 23-24 city driving and high 20's on the highway. Hoping tune puts me over the edge. This is driving like a little ole man, that's what I am....well in the truck. Did the crank this weekend and been driving back and forth to work this week and down to 1/4 tank and about 310 miles. Will gas tomorrow night and report here what half city and half highway has gotten me with all mods except the tune. Should be here in the next day or two.

Mine is 2WD and no big wheels, 3.73 rear end gears. MPG truck! (I hope) Will do a perf 87 tune when it arrives. It arrived! Changed to the 87 perf tune, easy install.

Gassed up, checked mileage - last tank 350 miles and 23.34 with half city/half hwy! Very pleased, looking forward to what it does now with the tune. Thanks Wayne at Underdog and Rogue Performance.

Last tank, city mostly, about 180 hwy, both with a/c on most of the time. Ran her until the low fuel light came on at 400 miles. Filled up a mile later and got 24.3 mpg! Pretty happy with it. Need to take her on a trip, but on a trip my other vehicles are more enjoyable to drive.
