I'm still getting around 14 in mine. It SUCKS! I'd be ecstatic if I could get around 18 mpg. I think I might sell it in the next year or two and get a 4dr Wrangler.

The first leg of my annual Christmas trip from Las Vegas to Missouri and Arkansas I got the worst mpg of 14.4 climbing into Flagstaff Az. The best of 17.7 through Texas and Oklahoma with no alcohol fuel. Averaging 16.4 for the trip out.

1999 V8 5.2 4x4 Club Cab, camper shell, Air Raide CAI, Super Chips 'Economy'

I bought the truck last year and was getting about 14.6mpg with BGF AT2's

Now, as I'm slowly bringing the maintenance schedule up to date, and with 265/75-16s



My Best is 19.6mpg, and that is nearly all highway with winter fuel!

Sadly, you gotta keep them RPM's down and drive like grandpa. 1600-1700 RPM max so thats about 60-65mph for me, otherwise, yer just suckin fuel.

Only managed 14.8...but probably too short a trip for good indication.

Full truck, empty bed. Head/cross wind most of the ride.

2001 QC 4x4 4.7 Auto with 3.55s. Kept on cruise control set 70-72. About 6 miles of our trip was 60mph zone so set there, and another 8 miles city and hill driving. Total of 60 miles one way, fill up to "topping back off just to see" fill up.

Problem I have now...planning a 2400 mile round trip in two weeks. Need to be able to plan fuel expense. Ugggg

Well, I didn't know about "fuelly", but according to my trip computer, which has never been reset since I bought the truck new, 19.6 with 183,700 on the odometer. Mostly highway driving with a soft tonneau.

What Big_Texxan isn't mentioning is that he has a second, 22 gallon tank on his truck ...


J/K. But back in the 60's when one of my uncles bought a RV, and discovered it got 3.8 MPG - being a welder, he took three 55 gallon drums, made new gas tanks to fit in the frame, and interconnected them so that the one filler would fill all of the gas tank(s) in it. It took over 100 gallons to fill it from empty ...
