    I had just replaced my o2 sensors bc of a CEL. And I just checked my mileage when filling up. And I calcualted I got a little over 20mpg mostly highway. And I went up to Mt. Hood (lots of hills). Yes I did calcualte for my bigger tires.. :)

    Im very pleased!:D

    With summer gas, I get 23mpg on 265/75/R16's in the BFG AT... I am pretty happy with that, although that is highway and city is around 18-19. In the winter with all the ethanol added I loose about 3mpg.

    thats roughly all I've been getting. Lots of "city" driving, and right now I'm at almost a 1/2 tank with like 120 miles.

    Not suprised a faulty o2 sensor can reduce your mpg's by 40%.:)

    ^^ Yeah it can!! Dont forget that when changing o2 sensors, you should always change both at the same time. I changed one and still had crappy MPG's and a CEL. So I changed the other one and now all is good. The Old and New will have two different readings other wise, and not be working correctly. Atleast thats what happened to mine. :)

    i've got 33's I get around 17mpg but I drive not so nice and I have a 3" lift. My o2 sensors need changed but I need to come up with the 250 bucks to change both of them.
