With 33s... Best was 19 MPG, going downhill from Flagstaff, AZ towards California. Worst was in the 13 MPG range, towing a brick of a 6000lb boat + trailer on hilly land. Also got 13 MPG once doing in town driving after I filled up at a small local station since it was cheaper. Never do that again.

Best MPG with the 35s was 16.5 going from STL to Des Moines, IA and back. Flat ground, cruise set on 75. I average 15-16 with the 35s.

18.0 mpg is my best, My worst was 13.9 I believe. I average anywhere between 15.0-17.0 most days. I mainly drive in the stock setting of my chip but i'm testing out fuel mileage in the other settings also.
