    its not that great... according to my GPS, a full tank gets me about 150-185 miles, depending on how hard i drive it...

    on my last job, i had a 72 mile daily commute (both ways) and i was filling up (running gas tank just below 1/4 tank) every 3 days...

    on weekends that we offroad, im filling up 2 to 3 times between friday and sunday...

    i think at one point, on a normal work week, i was dropping about $90 a week... on weeks with an offroad weekend, it was jumping up to about $120 to $150 a week...

    figure that we offroad at least once a month, or every other weekend, it adds up pretty quick...

    but even now, i work from home and really only drive my kid to school and some on location shoots around L.A. county... i typically gas up Sunday, Wednesday, and sometimes Friday...

    thank goodness for Costco gas at $2.80 a gallon...

    I love the 285's! my mileage did go down about 2mpgs but not enough to really matter, and the speedo is maybe 3mph off/slow. But there again not a big deal.
    I think that the look, fuction and cost is well worth the little loss in mpg's!:D

    I have 285/75-16s on my Taco that came with stock 265/75s and had wondered exactly how much the speedo was off as well. I got a TomTom GPS unit that tells you the MPH, and it seems to be off more than I thought. At 30-40 MPH on the speedo, the TomTom reads about 3-4 MPH faster. When I got on the highway and was doing ~70 MPH according to my speedo, the TomTom was reading 77-78 MPH. It's actually more than I thought it would be off.
