I'm experiencing something very similar with my 2004 4x4. It's completely stock, turbo was just replaced about 1500 miles ago because the old one had failed.
My tire size is 285 75R16, which was the next step up from the 265's it came with. My mileage is consistently hovering around 10 mpg, no matter how I drive it. I can baby it or stomp on it, freeway, in town, it doesn't make a difference. While I give the rig an A for consistency, it is rather frustrating hearing other's post their mpg's.
The air filter was replaced just after the turbo was done. I replaced both fuel filters less than a month ago, and the oil was just changed about 300 miles ago. Currently I'm running dino oil, but will be switching to synthetic, just couldn't afford to get the stuff I wanted last time around....
I'm at the point now where I'm almost ready to take it into a mechanic that is very reputable in the area here to see if they can find anything, but I don't want to spend money without needing too.
I've scanned the computer, no codes are being thrown, etc. I have the zoodad mod, but other than that it's factory. Any ideas?
