low fuel light is suppose to kick on around 3 gallons left, IIRC

As for mileage, with these 33s and driving normal to aggressive, BEFORE my dual friction clutch install, I was seeing sticker mileage for my truck - 15 city, 19 hwy. Now that I have a new clutch I'm driving super easy until breakin mileage is done. I typically see about 100-115 miles per 1/4 tank for the first 1/4 tank. Between 3/4 and 1/2 tank she sucks the gas some, then 1/2 tank and lower I see about 90-105 miles per 1/4 tank.

When I had the stock 31 BFGs I'd see 16-19city and 18-21.6 on hwy. That was mixed driving.

One of my best trips milage wise was going to Phoenix, AZ from Las Cruces, NM driving at 75-85 on the highway. That was the first week I owned the truck (see sig) and truck was at ~3000 miles. I didn't fill-up for gas until I was about 60 miles outside of phoenix. The needle was about a needle's width above the 1/4 left mark. I probably could have made it to Phoenix without filling up until in Phoenix.

EDIT: spelling errors

Little over 2 years and 62K on the clock. My truck is like a fine wine, it gets better with time.

my truck hasn't seen the sunny side of 20mpg yet I dont think. The only long haul where it could have got stellar mileage was driving from Ohio to Utah, but, it was hauling a 12' trailor loaded down behind it. It was calculated that it was getting 12mpg durring that trip

I have 500 miles on my new level II. I am really surprised at how poor the gas mileage has been. I ordered my truck to be built from the factory and either the man or machine that secures the plastic trim to your ceilings and around the inside of the door at the floor forgot to do their job. Trim fell off my ceiling and in the cab on the floor. Both pieces needed to be snapped in place. It feels kind of cheap. Also, the leather is not as nice as the leather found on an F-150. I had an F-150 Lariat Fx4 offroad. Besides those little things it drives like a solid little truck and I like the stereo.

I am saying the quality of the leather is not the same.

my off road ranger is built pretty good. i found some food in my engine bay looked like someone left me some leftovers. lol... i dont think it was from a animal because i didnt see any bite marks on it. looked like a piece of sliced melon?? right on top of the motor mount under the steering box, otherwise nice looking truck. gas sucks on this truck big time but i know its only 500 miles new. im hoping it gets better come summer or the 4banger mazda is coming back out. hey level11 how many miles do you get to a full tank?
