Was getting 17.6 mpg on the original OEM 21 inch wheels/tires using 91 octane. After the 18" TRD Pro wheels and 275/70/18 BFG's am getting about 14.6 mpg.

I don't get close to that, I average 13-15 mpg, but I do live in Colorado and drive a lot of mountain passes at high speeds or really slow town driving (which is actually worse for gas)

That is indeed news to me! Is there documentation of this or something I can show my wife who is afraid that I’m going to strand us in the middle of nowhere Texas? 😂

Just in case you really do wanna prove it...
Next time you fuel up...fuel up when cruise hits zero. Top off your tank...
-Tank capacity is 24.6 gallons. Subtract what you squeezed in from 24.6, and you’ll know you had at least that much in the tank (or a bit more if you didn’t completely top it off.

Takes forever to top it off with that reserve hole .. but I take the time

Isn’t that what the hole near fill neck is for reserve ?

Not sure that topping it off is a good idea. It can cause issues with the evaporation canister in most modern vehicles and if you throw an evap code in a n LX, you may be limping home.

I usually get 18 gallons and change on fill up once the light comes on, so about 5.5-6 gallons. I have gone up to 40 miles past the light, but still only had 22 gallons. It is so hit or miss though since my mileage is so dependent on every little thing, including have a fun tank of gas 😂

Not arguing with u I know exactly what ur talking abt .. was just telling u my experience

Ok, sure, you may not have a code because in the US, all gas stations have excess vapor recovery systems that will suck that excess fuel back out, even though you have paid for it.

But, if for some reason, the station's VRS is not functioning as designed and the excess fuel does end up in your tank, it will wreck your evap canister.

Sadly, there is a reason I know this.
