    Tips to improve mileage: lose the lift, get smaller tires and less agressive ones, lighter wheels, no lead foot, drive slower on the freeway, check your oils and make sure they are maintained well, check air pressure in your tires (adding another 5 + psi would be a good idea), things of that nature will help you


    same thing i posted in your other thread.....and the gas tank is still 21, hasnt changed since the other post

    lifts create more drag and more resistance against the wind and such. larger tires have more surface area and having aggressive ones cause more rolling resistance
