    i know with a bigger tire you cover more ground than your speedo thinks. so you are in reality getting better mpg than if you do miles on your trip OD/gallons used. so about what would my REAL mileage be with a prerunner on 33s just round about? i know ppl clam 16 highway but is that real mpg or not compensated for the greater distance traveled?

    TRD Supercharger, Toytec 3" Ultimate Lift w/ 285/75/16s and planning on OBA for sometime in the future. Also thinking about the HWMS and a Warn 8000 for it.
    I have 33s and I'm getting about 14mpg on almost every tank with about 30% city driving. This is before the correction. My difference between original tires and new is 7% further per rotation.
    Was pretty disappointed with that.
