Reg cab or extended? I get better than that with my 4.0 5spd ext. cab. but I also have a bigger tank (if you have a reg cab). I would say that is pretty good mileage tho....

I have a regular cab, 16 gallon tank and I get like 315 before I really need gas(Less then a gallon left). So I am around 21MPG.

Mine's a 4x4 but I'm only getting about 220 per tank. 4x4 shouldn't cut mileage that much, should it?

Be careful about running your tank that low, you run the risk of burning up your fuel pump...

Chris, burn the fuel pump really dang thanks for the warning

I use curise control once a while on long driving, following the speed limit, my not a 4x4 but a 2wd, but dont know if that the reason, maybe your motor needs some tune up, just wait and see what the others say, i cant really say

Your wheels don't help I'm sure.... You have more rotating mass than some.

Thats not too bad, I know my tires alone weigh 37lbs. Are you maybe not recalculating the offset from the old tire size to the new?
