What are you getting for mileage now? Any mods? Lift? Tires?

If you want great mileage buy a prius.

Take the brakes off of it. You can't drive so fast, you waste less fuel

Get alluminum plate and cover your undercarriage, lower the truck, get smaller tires and alloy rims, light weight flywheel, custom pro tune.

That's bout it.

Use Real gas.

Replace tires with LRR tires when needed, and when available in size - http://www.tirerack.com/tires/TireSe...r=15&x=39&y=13

Try following the Smith Driving System rule for being aware of traffic situations 15 seconds ahead of you. Claim of "as much as 29% better fuel economy" can be achieved - http://www.smith-system.com/index.shtml

That's some of what I do and I've been getting 29 MPG in my 2008 2.3, automatic w/4.10's ...even if I'm not supposed to be getting it. Might even break 30 this time, if the extra slow moving gauge is any indication.


BTW, I'm still running the crappy original Continental tires and should see even better MPG with LRR tires.

If you have a flex DON'T use E85, mileage sucks compared to gasoline. I only got 15mpg.
What are you getting now? I just bought my truck '02 2wd 3.0. 100k on it. in desperate need of an overall tune-up. Before going over it I got 18mpg. I'll let you know if I see any improvements after plugs, wires, filters, etc...
