With the MODS that I have done in my signature below....along with changing everything over to synthetics; the '00 gets about 16-18 on the hwy and less (not sure) around town. Combined is usually about 14-15 mpg.
IF ALL my driving is hwy and I keep the speed down to 65-70.... I can usually get 280-300 miles on about 17 gallons.

OR 4x4

245's are close equivalent to a 31.
So should i keep the 245's or the next step higher (which i dont know)?

I think the problem is rolling resistance.
4.10s are a big drag when coasting
Can't unlock the front hubs,
Goofy geometry on the front CVs
31's are too short
