    Well I just filled up for the first time after driving a full tank with my new setup. My setup is 5100's F&B, front set @ 2.5 with LR UCA's and rear is TSB+ Toytec TSB AAL, Tires are 285/75/16 BFG AT's on TRD SE FJ Wheels. Well I was happy to see I got 330 miles before my light came on and after my 7.5% added for tire size i got 18.5mpg:). This was with mixed highway city driving. I keep from hitting the gas hard at green lights and stop signs and rarely go much over 2k RPM's. To compare my average tank before tires was 19.2mpg. My truck is a 2010 DC LB 4x4 TRD sport with a bone stock motor. I say considering how much I love my truck with the lift the minimal loss in MPG was well worth it.. Thought I would share a positive for those worried about a lift killing your fuel economy, drive smart and get that lift :cool:..

    Looking good :cool:. I'm still saving for some new tires; but I am in the same ballpark regarding MPG. It really dies down to the skinny peddle, lay off that one and your golden :D

    Yeah, I average about 14-16 daily... I dont think I have ever gotten 18.5, the most I think is like 17.5 on the way to ATL and its was raining hard so I could only go about 50mph. What do you get?

    I'd have to agree, I dont drive slow, but even when I do drive slow, I still dont get anything near 18.5 more like 17.

    Shit, I didn't see that feature, I dunno what my problem is then, oh well. Its gotten the same MPG since I bought it new. I've learned to live with it.

    yea, I think its the cause of my problems, but it is sooo fun. But actually on long trips it does pretty well for what it is I went from here to pine groove (150 each way) and still had a quarter of a tank when i got back so probably around 330, so it is possible just not as fun.
