    i'm running 31x10.50's and get between 210~220 miles/tank. i usually add an extra 10% for slightly larger tires and get 13-14 mpg.

    Stock gears and 33's. In town 175-180 miles/tank. Highway is around 220-240 miles/tank, I can cruise at 80mph @ 2500rpm. This is what I've had for the last 8-9 years.

    220-230/ tank at 55mph. (4 speed, go figure:doh:) And it sucks!

    if I had a vortech/tourque splitter/5speed combo, I would be going like 70 mph @ 1200 rpm's....:D:D but thats not the case right now.:frown:

    13-15, got around 16-17 once on a highway trip. Been in 4wd since thanksgiving, so that has shot mileage in the ass for the past couple months.

    Just replaced cap, rotor and plugs, getting a few more miles per tank with that. But I found that cylinders 1-5 were at 115 PSI, which is alright, but #6 was 55 PSI, I'm suspecting a stuck valve in that one. Not bad for 218,000 miles, two crappy past owners up till 170,000 miles. I replaced the cat and all exhast on back with NAPA stuff this past fall, didn't really see much difference, maybe a little more pep compared to original cat in there.

    That's bone stock, no mods, except some australian mirrors (the rattly aftermarket kind)

    My 1F 40 get better mileage though.
