    you drive a TRUCK. 22mpg is good for your TRUCK. if you do not like the mpg's of your TRUCK buy a toyota or a honda.

    Im getting anywhere between 25-28 highway. Then again, I have no ac, no power steering so there's less things robbing power under the hood.

    I don't think any of us are getting the gas mileage we use to get. The newer fuel with ethanol is crap! I have heard we are loosing about 20% of our MPG because of it. I’ve also heard the non ethanol fuel puts the same amount of "pollution" out the tail pipe because the computer controls what goes out.

    22 is damn good if it gets real cold during the winter where you're at like it does here. i just filled up the other day, i got 19.6 lol
  11. I put 50.6 on a half tank because I had to leave it run for about 20 minutes the other day to warm up. It was -6 at my house...

    The best I ever got was 22.8 and that was when I moved out to Oklahoma... now granted I had my fat ass, my 2 basset hounds, a bed full of all of my stuff (clothes, tools, guns etc) , and I was rolling on 32" at's with 4.10 gears, it was kinda of a fluke though, I dunno how I got that good of mileage, **** now Im getting like 14

    Is there a huge difference between the fuel mileage in a 2wd 5speed and a 4wd 5speed when the 4wd is not engaged?

    (that is assuming that these don't have full time 4wd...)

    There's at least a 5+ mpg difference if the engine's are the same. You have to take into account the transfer case is spinning and the 4x4's usually have lower gears, and larger tires from factory, PLUS the extra weight of the front axle and transfer case and driveshaft.
  17. And the height difference too. Gotta factor in all the air that's getting under the truck and catching on all the parts down underneath.

    being tall is fun tho, worth the loss in mileage

    is that city, highway, or combined mileage; if city, holy **** thats great; highway, could be doing something better; combined, that sounds just about right.
