    Apparently it doesn't suck that bad if you're hauling that much ass.....I'm glad I'm not on the road around your parts.

    The calm before the storm! 2 blocks from Lake Michigan. We always get a ton of lake effect snow. You won’t hear me crying right now!
    Plus my engine is still glowing from my ride in!

    Its not a bad idea to keep your eye on the mpgs. If all of a sudden mpgs drop, there might be an issue with the truck.

    Tires/air pressure? Last 500 miles I've been averaging 17-18mpg. It was around mid to low 30's all last week. I'm on 285s, lifted and armored. Summer time I average 19+

    Depends on what tires you have, how much weight you are carrying. I run my ridge grapplers at 38-40 psi.

    Truck was getting 20-21 mpg with a mix of city/ highway driving. Added lift and 285/70/17's right as colder weather rolled in. Best I get now is 18mpg. I just figured it was the lift and tires. :confused: Maybe it'll get better when warmer weather comes back.

    During that mess of a snow storm, that tank got 15.8MPG. But I was using 4Hi and a little 4Lo, plus rear locker from time to time. No highway at all. Now back to 18 or so, commute mpg - no highway.

    I've been averaging about 19.5-20.5 mpg around town until Michigan winter hit. Now I'm about 16-18 due to remote start warm-ups in the morning, full time defroster, and the occasional 4H usage for the snow. On the brighter side it should start warming up a bit here in the next 3-5 fill-ups. :thumbsup:

    Taco cold mileage sucks.

    Winter fuel sucks.

    Solution? Move!
