What's your gas mileage with 33" tires or bigger?

Hi,

Please don't bash or say stuff like "go get a prius".

I just want to know what MPG most people are getting with whatever lift they have, whatever gears they have and with 33" tires or larger.

I'm sure this will be useful to many people wanting to know different setups and what others are getting. Also, I am aware MPG is driver dependent, and dependant on many other things, but just for points of reference. That being said, if you can just fill out these fields:

Example:

Gear Ratio: ("Stock", [or modified ratio number])
Tire brand/type: "Nitto Muds", "BFG ATs"
Tire Size: 33"
(Optional) Lift Type/Size: "Spacer, 2 inch "
MPG: 14

Something like that,

Thanks in advance

Are you guys are compensating with how much further you are actually traveling with larger tires? Or are you just looking miles on your trip odometer and dividing by gallons/ fill up.

With 285/70/17 vs stock 265/70/16 tires, when my speedo says 60 on the dash, I'm really going 64mph. Keep that in mind...

60mph for 1 hour on the dash, would be in traveling 64 miles real life, put that through 300 odo reading and you;ve gone 320 actual miles (or aprox 1-1.5 gallons of fuel to miles per gallon that you're not compensating for) marinate that in your brain for a little.

so, everyone who says their gas milage dropped horrible amounts, sure more weight to turn takes more power, more rolling resistance, but once you're going it doesn't take very much more power to keep you at a steady 60mph vs being stock. i think we're losing some, but not as bad as you may think people are making it out to be.

i say -0.5 mpg at the max

just thought i would share this info

i went 60.8 actual miles today, and the odometer only registered 57.1 might not seem like much... but, when i go 121,600 actual miles it will only register 114,200 on the odometer.

if it gets there...
486,400 actual miles will register only 456,800 miles

help a little with resale value, and all that gas and MPG not accounted for adds up doesnt it

no idea how to convert this this miles per gallon for each tank

but 243.2 acutal miles, your odometer will say 228.4

243.2 actual miles / 16gal = 15.2 mpg
228.4 odometer miles / 16 = 14.2 mpg

safe to say what ever you are calculating adding +1 to that seems reasonable. the further you go on the tank the higher that number, extra 1.5 - 2.0 mpg is very possible
