I may be missing something

So my Lie-o-meter says that I am getting 13.3 mpg. when I last filled up i divided the total miles by the gallons I purchased. I got 11.4. I have a 2005 CC Sb FX4, (i think) 6 inch lift on 35's. Am I missing a calculation due to the tires? the speedo seems to be right according to the road side speed things. 11.4 seems low, but i may be wrong. I do know that my mustang is getting about 6 on the freeway so im good with 11 if that is right. lol

Thanks guys

Your probably getting around 12 mpg...


sitting on 35's when i drove through a tank full whenever I drove "100 miles" i was ACTUALLY driving 105 miles...

so on my 300 miles trip i actually drove 315-320 miles which raised my mileage up a bit.

(My odometer showed 300 when a gps said I drove 320)
