so just asking, but does everyone have an accurate speedo/odo? just making sure, there's alot of oversize tires here!

i've gotten 22MPG with my '06 fx4, all stock. unfortunatly i don't regularly report that. it's getting on to winter here, more idling and winter gasoline = lousy mileage!

there was one time that i was going through the rocky mountains with my ranger, i swear i had to be close to 400 miles on that tank of gas, but i was sure sweating! it had to be darn near right empty!

Hmm.. Well i am on stock size tires and my speedo is within 3 miles per hour.. I would say that if i drive hard i can manage like 240 to a light, driving nice 320 to a light and driving to empty 400.. cause well 19 x 21 yeah thats where you would be.

Honestly, I didn't like the look of the ext cab. It has grown on me more now though but if I had it to do over again....I coulda gotten the new style 4 door Nismo Frontier for around the same price.

Filled up this morning at 263.4 miles and it took 15 gallons to fill it up. Also didn't do the best at preserving gas on this trip.

I should post pictures of me getting 220 miles to an average of 15 gallons of gas. I REALLY need to change the filter, and the probably plugs, see if it helps at all.

We get crappy gas here thanks to the farmer-friendly laws. We have to burn 10 percent ethanol. In the winter we get crappier gas. I just filled up and got 16.7 mpg. I did hit 20 mpg once last summer, but usually only get 19 or so summer and 16.5 to 17 winter (sometimes worse if I have to use 4x4). Mine is bone stock right now. If any of you have suggestions for improvement, I would sure appreciate it!

We just got back from Texas last week. We drove the PT Cruiser. We went from 25 mpg on crappy Iowa gasoline to 30 mpg on Oklahoma (non-ethanol) gas. So by adding 10 percent ethanol to "save" on fossil fuels, I lost 17 percent in mileage. In other words I burn seven percent more fossil fuel by adding 10 percent ethanol. Ya gotta love our government! How would all us ignorant hicks get by without their help!

I reset my trip nearly every time I fill up. Routinely I get right around 250 miles on the tank before the light. 4.0 with stock gearing an stock wheels.

I also drive the hell out of my truck. I routinely travel a tollway in our area which regular flow of traffic is between 80 - 90 mph. So I see the electronic speed limiter on my vehicle quite often.

I wish I had 3.73's I bet I could get a lot better. I'm with cheetwood, I'm still getting 20 mpg all the time. I go 300 miles before I think about getting fuel.

I have 4.10s and always get 240 miles until the light comes on. I just put on bigger tires 265/75/16, and I was wondering if I will get better gas mileage now since the bigger gear ratio with bigger gears will be similar to a small gear ratio with smaller tires. Is this true?

Yes that is correct. It will change your overall ratio. Will you actually get better mileage? Hard to tell, put some miles on and see.
