latly i have noticed a drop in millage. i have been only getting 300 milles a tank. i usally put in 24 gallons. now i do have bigger tires and thats why the millage is low but i used to get close to 400 milles a tank. i can't belive the tires screwed up my milage that bad. the truck runs great. i am just hoping it is not a injector problem.





Do you all have any info that might help?

Have you been compensating for the larger tires and doing your MPG math, etc. using the error factor? I run 315 70R17's so my error factor compared to stock is 11.33% (slow) which means my speedo and odometer are all off this amount and I must take this into account when figuring mileage, etc.

What mileage are you calling crap? I run a 4" lift with 35's and I'm getting around 16-17 mpg
