    As opposed to stock? Roughly take your calculation and multiply by 1.06 (add 6% to your calculation). I think this is what you were asking.

    miles driven/gallons used=mpg
    275/70/16=31.2 inches
    285/75/16=32.8 inches

    Using the speedometer calculator at www.4lo.com, at an indicated 100mph, the bigger tire will be going 105.1mph, so adjust your calculations by 5.1%

    Of course you speedometer may be off by 5%, and the tire size may be slightly different depending on tire manufacturer and wear, in other words your theoretical calculation may not perfectly reflect reality.

    My actual gas mileage didn't change at all from stock to 285s once the correction was applied.

    Same with mine, the difference was extremely negligible...a couple tenths of a mile per gallon, at the very most. My mpg rate is much, much more affected by things like load weight, A/C usage, driving style and terrain (ie city vs. freeway, lead foot vs. mellow, hilly vs. flat, etc.).

    It probably coincided with the change in fuel formulation between winter and summer.
