I used to get around 250 per tank (13-14 mpg), with the stock size tires on.

Then I changed the plugs, wires, and installed a volant air intake, and it went up to around 270 per tank (14-16 mpg). Also I put on bigger sized tires, 30X9.5 BFG all-terrains.

Then I changed the O2 sensors and now I get around 300 per tank (don't know what the mpg's are).

Happy now, plus I get better gas mileage.

EDIT: Forgot to say that it's a 3.0L FFV with 3.73's and it's a 4X4.

I get about 230-245 depending on my foot! Considering that is really good for me, b/c I have 35s, 4.88 Gears, and a Superchager with Dougs Programming! Cost me around $40 to fill-er-up and that is with 93 Octane, can't use anything else with the SC! I wouldn't have it any other way either!!!!!!!!!!!

Well I normally get around 225 per tank all in town driving takes about 33 to 35 to fill it when the light comes on. The other day I stoped and put $10 in which was like 4.3 gallons and went to birmingham running around with the air on and 115 miles. I stopped and got gas the light was on and when I got back to where I bought the gas the light came back on at the same place so that is around 22 or 23 mpg most of the time it is like 13 or 14 here in town. I got a 2001 xtra cab 17" wheels with a bed cover cant tell bed cover helps though 3.0 auto. Maybe I will try a K&N.
