Alright everyone ... what are you getting for MPG?

Alright so since gas is getting expensive I was curious on what everyone was getting for MPG.

Please include...
MPG: Average, Best, Worst
Engine Size:
Gear Ratio:
Tire Size:
Auto vs 5speed:
and any mods you have done to your truck engine/drivetrain wise:

I will go first...

My average MPG is 20.4 mpg, My Best was 21.1 mpg, My worst was 13.8 mpg

I have a 4.0 SOHC

I have 4.10 LS Gears

I have 35x12.50R15 size tires

I have a 5 speed manual

As far as mods go engine wise I have the EE supercharger. Its a good/bad mod ... if your foot is in it ur screwed ... outta it and easy on it its a good mod. Flowmaster Super 40 exhaust ... thats about it for engine mods ....

What are all of you getting?

Average: 16.5 mpg; Best: 20.5 mpg; Worst: 13 mpg

3.0; 4.10 open; stock tires (28"), 5 sp auto. Exhuast (flows, dumped)

Funny thing is.. i got 20.5 when i had around 5-600 pounds of load in the back of my truck, going around 80 the whole way.. weird!!! i think if i lift my truck & bigger tires, i'll get better mileage

Best: 22.6
Average: 20
Worst: 18
Engine: 2.5L I4
Trans: Manual
Gears: 3.73s
Tires: P225/70R15
Modifications: soft tonneau (could have a slight effect)
My driving is roughly 80% city and 20% highway, though that varies. Odd thing is, I managed to get the 22.6 MPG mostly driving between school and home (1.7 mi one way) with less than 40 highway miles just by changing my driving habits. I'd really like to see what I could get on the highway going the speed limit for a couple hundred miles.
