MPG ?

Hey guys I got a question about mpg. I got 4in lift with 37's and have my ts chip on the 75 hp tune. I have been getting around 13 mpg. Does that sound right? Before lift and tires I was getting around 16.

Try driving a little slower these start sucking the fuel if you go above 60mph.

Mines a 2wd and im getting 21 mpg with a similar hp box.

13 mpg is pretty low for a lift and tires, hows your driving style? Mountains?

No mountains. Usually drive about 62 mph. Some times I get after it but most of the time I drive like a white man.

Might try synthetic fluids and bump up the tire pressure, monitor tire wear and see how the tires are wearing with certain tire pressure.

Check to see if your brakes are dragging, see if your calipers are not releasing the pad away from the rotor. Double check to see if your park brake shoes are not rubbing constantly.

Hope that helps

I would expect that to be about on par for that much lift and those heavy M/Ts and larger rims... that is a lot of extra rolling mass with a increased drag from the lift

Has your speedo/odometer been re-calibrated for the larger tires?
