    Freakin 3 inch Toytec with 33 m/ts AEM intake and TRD exhaust. I just got my highest mpg in years, 15! I get 13 around town and 14-15 highway. I would have stripped it back down if I drove a lot each day. Heres my LITTLE GAS PIG!!!!

    I had one of those smart things pass my on A1A the other day when I was doing about 78MPH. Thing is tiny. Looks like if a fly farted next to it the thing would blow over.

    I've GOT to get one of those monster Smart Cars!!! That looked like fun! That first pic is me in one of those Smart cars in Europe last year. I HAD to sit in one of them. If you guys knew how big I was you would be hysterical. Like a clown car, but I had a LOT of room surprisingly. Just wouldn't want to have an accident in one at 60 MPH!!! :eek::eek::eek:

    Hey 20Taco, sorry for sending the thread in the wrong direction. I've been waiting a while to post that stupid pic! I think my truck is unusually bad. I am looking into getting a MAF calibrator. So much shit is changed on my truck from stock that there is no way its burning fuel correctly. A lot of guys do way better than me. I work on ships so its not my fuel thats burning. My commute is 7 miles each way a couple times a week. SO....

    LETS GET BACK ON TRACK GUYS!!! Who's getting what MPG with what LIFT and TIRES?

    I think they're a completely ridiculous idea. You can get better gas mileage out of a Corolla than that smart car and it's about the same price. I just don't see the point of it.

    I drive like a grandpa, atleast thats what my 3yr old says. I also fuel up at about half a tank to keep from having to dish out so much cash at one time. My previous tires were smaller than factory and now these are larger but the mileage is about the same atleast on the last 3 fill ups. I just changed to synthetic and haven't noticed a difference in anything yet I suppose it'll take a while to clean up.

    3" lift with 265 75 16s (about 31.5") and am getting around 20mpg interstate. If the wind didn't blow as hard here, it would probably be a tad better.

    My first fill up I averaged 21mpg only in the city. Granted city driving around here is 50mph but still that was no highway and driving like a grandpa with a broken hip.
