I feel lucky now. I regularly get 260+ miles on my tank. 35's 4.0 4.10's and a manual. and those are long miles due to the tire diameter....just took it straight from the trip meter. I get horrible freeway mileage because of the torque curve of the 35's and 4.10's. it sucks. can't wait to be gear to spirited incity driving!

i hate you thats the same numbers as my 2.5 2wd 4cyl 5spd stock everything

im wondering did they maybe change the gears from the 2.3 or does the 2.5 just suck that much .... cause everyone with a 2.3 seems to be reporting 26mpg highway or better consistent.

Alright... I def. have something wrong with my truck... LOL I got 242 miles to my tank the last tank I had... I was in the mountains, but still... that shouldn't change it that much as I generally see about 230-245 miles to a tank regularly...

Where is the issue.. you said you got 242... and you usally get 230 - 240? haha..

I get around 280 - 320 a tank when i drive right and thats a 4.0L 4wd.

I average 18 - 21 depending on my driving.. City i can push alot of 18-19

and highway 20 - 21 depending on speeds.. i try to stay at 75 mph.
