Usually get about 15-16 mpg since I bought it at the end of May '06 - but that's with A/C and each tank has had some moderate offroad activity - so not sure what it will be when strictly on the road. Just can't seem to stay on pavement! laugh And to think I bought this after getting insane mileage on my mountain bike 3.5 miles each way to work! Just couldn't take the heat of Phoenix any more - plus being able to offroad it is a serious bonus... [ThumbsUp]

I just checked mine a few weeks ago. I averaged about 17.5 mpg. Which is surprising due to I like to hear the wine of the S/C. I never did check the mpg before the K&N FIPK though. 265/65/17

yeah, but stickers for all the products you've got (or wish you had) are still for fags. only fags need to brag. Unless of course your sponsored and then they're kinda required... In all other cases though... GAY!

Each time I get gas I write in a little book, the following info.

Date
Station Name
Station Location
Price Per Gallon
Total Cost
Total Number of Gallons
Odometer
Trip Odometer (reset at each fill-up)
Type of Gas

I also note the date and mileage of my mods.

I decided to enter this all into a spreadsheet and see what numbers I come out with. Here is the summary.

Average MPG:
Stock w/ Dino Oil: 15.5218234
Lift w/ Dino Oil: 14.5080771
Lift, Front Bumper w/ Dino Oil: 14.5002732
Lift, Front Bumper w/ Synthetic Oil: 14.2961943 *This shocked me
Lift, Front Bumper, Tires w/ Synthetic Oil (I used 3.7% for the change in tire size): 13.0536942

Yearly Stats (7/14/05 7/11/06):
Total Miles: 22145
Gallons of Gas: 1495.753
Average Price Per Gallon: 2.490816327
Total Cost of Gas: 3728.67
Average MPG: 14.80525193
Best MPG (between fill-ups): 18.0507678 (hi-way from Pittsburgh to Detroit)
Worst MPG (between fill-ups): 10.6271658 (weekend of wheeling)

so i finally tried to kick my driving habits for a tank of gas and im amazed. I usually go 220 miles or so and the gas light comes on. Now i have kept it under 2500, mostly 2000 rpm and at this moment i have 209 miles on the odo and still a tiny bit more than a quarter tank left. I am definitely going to get much more than 220 on this tank
How many miles do you guys ussually get to a tank?

In the summer I get about 245-250 before the light comes on. In the winter it's around 235 or so.

All the mileage adjusted for the tire size.

Highway avg is 19 to 20+ MPG w/ moderate mods.
(A/T tires @ stock size, PML, sliders)
I don't track in town as I know the MPG stinks.
Generally I average between 300 to 325 miles per tank.

Do the math and don't rely on the trip conputer. I bet you will be surprised.

If that's the "instant" MPG, it means nothing. I had a trip computer in my 2000 Intrepid. Going downhill with no throttle on, it'd show 60 MPG. Conversely, uphill with power on, it might show 6 MPG.

It's the average MPG you have to look at, and my Intrepid would accurately reflect around 19-20 MPG overall. I'm not buying those numbers as your average.

Yea ok. I think people arent doing this right. You need to take the number of gallons you put in and divide that into the number of miles you drove. I get 12 mpg. Thats with an 02. The newer models shoud be doing better.

Uh. I'm reading this thread. And i'm utterly shocked. I'm getting around 24mpg around CITY. No lie. I never go above 70mph. 05 X weighs exactly 4478lbs (on a scale with a full tank of gas and me in it, not according to the door). 40psi (over inflated i know, i dont wanna hear it :-P) I'm hoping they wear out quickly so i can put some Load Range D's on it and inflate them higher. Gas mileage man. Gas mileage.

I went down to Virginia once, got 25mpg going down there, got 19 towing a 6000lb load (yes i know, overloaded, the truck at it, and spit it out :-P) I'm not even lying. 21.5 Gal tank.

The first week i owned the car, i drove up to maine. got like 16mpg driving at like 85mph, now i drive like a grandma well, of course, at $3 a gallon, do you blame me?.
