Who is getting best MPG with what mod??

I was wondering what type of fuel milage some of you others were getting and what all you did to your truck. I'm gettin 11.0 with my stock 08 running 35"BFG All Terrains. Now I did not calabrate it up because I want it to show less miles on the truck. What really sucks is i have a 2000 f250 with 28.5" of lift and 5:38 with 49" IROKs that get 13-14 MPG.

Has anyone else heard about the 8 Speed Automatic transmission may be coming out with???

you didnt calibrate it because you want to lie to the dealer and the next owner...nice.

if you were lazy I could go for that, but for lying, sad.

sucks about the mileage though.

You might as well just have it calibrated. For not knowing the true speed and mileage, not having the correct shift points, not knowing what you kind of economy you are getting without having to do math and still possibly be wrong......all for a few miles, thats retarded. For the 35" BFG's after driving a true 10,000 miles... 9147 miles will show on your odometer......doesnt sound worth it to me.

And apparently no one has a mod that helped their mileage.

I bought my truck with the factory 20's which measure 34+" tall. My speedo was consistently 2 MPH low. I now have 35's and it merely brought my speed closer to correct. The odometer seems to be right on as well. Not that big of deal.

If you go a larger difference than that, calibration may be in order, if nothing else, to help the tranny shift right.

I don't consider it lying if you didn't calibrate the speedo. It is correctly counting the revolutions of the drivetrain and running gear. If it shows 100,000 miles then is has done all the same work or revolutions of any other truck that shows 100,000 miles Who cares if the windshield seen more miles of wind resistance.

You're missing the point. It wasn't that he was 'lying' about the mileage, it was just the fact that everything will be inaccurate until it is calibrated. More so for real-time speed, trip mileage and mpg than total mileage. More of a inconvenience than anything else...
So, no one has anything to answer his original question?

didnt mean to drag half the posts off topic, for that I apologize.

No idea bout the terrible mileage, perhaps you should visit the dealer, the mileage shouldnt be THAT bad...perhaps something is stuck.
