Have you flashed your ECU to account for the change in tire size? If I used the odometer to calculate before I adjusted for tire size, it would figure to about 9 mpg. In 240 miles (about a tank) my odometer was off about 40 miles. In other words, my GPS read 240 and my odometer was at 200.

Stock I was getting 14 mpg with 255/70 R16's. Sounds like you might need a tune-up or something. Or you might just get on the gas more than me. I'm pretty easy on it. Try to keep the RPM's below 2k.

Truck looks amazing. One more cheap mod that will really enhance the appearance of the truck would be to clean up that rear axle and give it a shot of black paint. WIth the new lift that axle really sticks out.

Yea, I just haven't gotten to that yet. I also want a nice cover for it when I throw in some 4.10's.
