    Winter time, i can expect that. I should say 400 is a really good distance for me... usually its around 350-380 and thats with a 70-30 hwy/city split.

    What fuel do you use ?

    I usually always get 425kms when the light comes on , even in winter , with 450 lbs of canopy and tools , an OME lift and 32 1/2" tires

    I normally use fuel from Shell, 87 octane.
    I'm carrying maybe the same weight with armor and bumpers, etc and also running 285's but im regeared to 4.56's. RPM's run a little high on the highway so that's mostly my problem.

    Just bought truck 2 weeks ago. Last tank was 400 kms, which included a 70 km run in 4wd in a snowstorm and the rest of the tank was short trips at -25C. I'm assuming it should not get worse than that

    Hmmm, like I stated earlier, I've regeared and carry a whole pile of extra weight including a topper, front and rear steel plate bumpers and full armor for the most part. What's your excuse? lol

    It's gotta be your foot dude! lol With a CAI and exhaust done plus sitting on 32" tires you should be able to lock down some better fuel mileage numbers, i would hope.

    I've gotten to the point of possibly buying an older Civic for a daily driver/commuter just to help save on fuel costs, at least till the truck is paid off...

    According to my calculations I would get 620 km to a tank but I never run it that low. 530 km is about the max I've run it. I use this to do easy conversions. Click on the quick links and it has one just for the most common automotive conversions.
