12mpg around town is fairly reasonable. MT tires kill mileage.

stop and go traffic is going to be lousy. Its lousy on all vehicles unless you have a hybrid that switches over to battery power. THese trucks are big may want to go shopping in a prius! just kidding!

Nope


This is a pic barely taken. Of course its not getting 14, but around 12mpg. The range on that truck was 193miles with the 35's. That truck now gets around 296miles per tank
