I used to get 20 highway when I was stock, now with the 33's I get about 16-17 during the summer, 13-14 during the winter. City driving is anywhere from 12-8mpg.

2004 Extended cab 4 door with 4.0L and 4x4

This is the average since i installed my gauge which was two days ago. I've done a mix of driving and went on the highway for about 2 miles today.




and so you don't think i took a picture of when i let off the gas, this is where it shows the MPG while driving if you have it set (says 0 because truck isn't moving)

17-18 city, 19-22 highway. Right now for some reason I am getting 16.4, I think it has to do with heavy foot and lower psi in front tires. I'll eventually fix this.

My 2011 with the 4.0 5sp auto, 3.73s, K&N, and tonneau cover got 19.5 on the highway with babying it. This is on a stock tire.

Those with larger tires calculating your mpg, did you have the truck recalibrated for the tires?

Mods and truck info in my sig.

Recent average mixed driving on gasoline has been 19mpg. Last trip out of town, 70% highway driving was 21.5mpg. I don't drive with a light foot, highway speeds are rarely under 65mph.
