    If you are getting anywhere between 18 and 24 with a 4 cyl you are getting about average. There are some that are getting better but that is the average from what I have researched.

    I was just curious if the tires aredoing damage to the engine over tim,too much for the engine to turn over time. I could care less about gas.

    yeh 280 is kinda wack lol. try adding an exhaust and CAI. I do not remember how much my gas was back in the day because my truck has had an aftermarket exhaust since 30,000 miles (im at 189xxx) and a Volant CAI was put in at around 150xxx. The CAI helped a tad bit
