I've been woundering if i'd get a little better with 32's...I only got like 16 city, and 18 highway when i had the stock p235/75/15.

I can get 21 on the highway now! Any better with 32's?

Oh its not worth it to jump up to the 32s for gas mileage lol, spend that money on a tuner.

Yeah i just got a Jet Performance Programer about 6 months ago. I love it! I adjusted my Spedo and It added some great power at about 3000 rpms. And you know how if you floor it at 75 mph it will shift and rev up high and then kind of bog down a little...well it doesn't bog down as much now and that really helps when your passing a simi

Seeing the numbers you guys are pulling it makes me kinda glad i didnt put a lift and bigger tires on mine.
I pull 21-23 mpg average.
Next purchase will be a tuner for me too, more power.

I'm getting the same mileage I got stock so I'm pretty happy with it. If I had a stick I could pull 21-22 too.

I just don't drive to work anymore. I'm a minute from our little rural commuter train station. My new employer pays 100% of the monthly train pass cost. And I walk the 3 blocks to work. When I really get on a roll and don't drive at all, i fill up like every two weeks at the most.

My 2.5 gets 19-22. Depends on how I drive. Still, $45 last fill up. But, got a little over 300 miles to the tank.
