I've noticed about 20-22 MPG in my stock PreRunner DblCab most of the time. My Fuelly input is with me doing much more city driving than I normally would. There are tons of little things that can improve mileage, if only a little bit... It adds up.

Honestly it's all about how you drive. I have gotten as little as 15mpg on a full tank to 22.5 mpg on a full tank doing the same ratio of city/highway

You hit the nail on the head. If I drive like I like to drive, I get 17. If I drive like a I can get 21 or better. Damn I hate driving slow

That is with: 6-speed, 35" mud terrains, and a six inch lift. This was 100% highway with cruise set at 64mph...I'm stoked

Actually, may be more. My difference is 13% correct?



from the online tire size calculator
Question for you all that's kind of like Jay238's: As of last week I'm driving a 2005 DC Off Road 6-speed with Nitto Terra Grappler 285/70/17's and about a three inch lift. (May have to start another thread to see what you all can tell me about the lift.)

When I used the tire size calculator I think I'm supposed to input 265/70/16's as the stock tire the odometer would have been calibrated to - at least in theory?

When I use the 265's as my base assumption, and the current 285/70/17's the tire size calculator tells me that I'm actually going 6.4% farther than my odometer reads.

If that is all correct, is this the math? (Odometer distance) x (106.4%) = (actual miles). Then (actual miles)/(gallons at fill-up) = (Actual MPG's)?

Is that correct?

My first tank with no correction was 17.2 mpg's on 87 octane.
