everybody just needs to take like 5 minutes and learn how to read a tire. Metric tire sizing isnt really all that hard.

i know how to read it, its just dumb to have a ratio, whats the point? all anyone needs to know anyway is how wide the tire is, how tall it is, and what size wheel it fits.

no lift. basically the same thing as a regular cat just a higher flow. think of it this way paper air filter vs a k&n drop in. a little more flow. a piece of pipe increases the flow, i can feel a difference and my gf could smell the truck from following me

Since I installed my tuner I get right at 21mpg with 3.73's and 33's. I probably could have gotten a little better but I found myself keeping up with the cars going above 80mph.

It was around 17-18mpg. I would always get down to a 1/4 tank one way but this time it was between 1/4 and 1/2 with it more towards the 1/2. I also run ethanol free 93 octane.

Did you not fill the tank? You can hold more than 16

My absolute best was 23 going to Columbia, MO from Rolla, MO (all highway)

i get 15 if im lucky and if i drive any slower i wont be moving, this is with 4.10 and 33s, there is no way i can get that much unless im going down a hill. im hopeing to gain a few back with a tuner, but i just dont see how that guy claims 21mpg with 33s and 3.73s.

Reading this thread makes me think something is wrong with my truck. The absolute best I've ever gotten is 16 mpg. Does running different octane gas make that much difference. I usually just run 87.

I have a manual and it's reg cab. Also my 33's are 10.50 and not 12.50's. When I got back from my trip it was 20.83mpg.

You can fit more after the pump shuts off. I can get about 17.5 gallons normally if I fill it to the brim.
