    Holy smokes this 2.7 is horrible on fuel! I know it's alot heavier than the base models and I'm running 265/70/17's but any one have any ideas for better mpg's I already dropped in a k&n but averaging 18mpg on highway boooo

    That is terrible for a 4banger, I'm getting 24 highway with 3 inch lift and 33/12.5 at about 60-65 mph :) shoulda got the v6! I bet it's better on gas even with the more power

    You won't notice much if any difference in mileage with the air filter.

    There's more mpg threads than stars in the sky in the 2nd gen subforum, a lot of prerunner 2.7 guys get up to 25ish, and the search function on this site works really really well if you choose to use it.

    I'm not digging the gas cost right now myself. I'm at about $470 a month just to get to work. I'm not doing any mods to my truck since nothing really works. Well one mod does work and that is the trade in mod which I might just do soon.
