    Default Ultimate MPG guide - Check Expected Mileage (Pleas enter your verified mpg info)

    Well, it's time for a definitive MPG guide.

    What can you expect for your vehicle with certain upgrades?
    What kind of mileage can you expect on a new (to you) truck?
    How badly will larger tires affect your mileage?

    Hopefully we can get this guide to a point where all these questions will be answered and more.
    Please feel free to reply to this post and enter your own information. PLEASE keep your post factual - make sure your mileage has been verified more than once to ensure accuracy. Information we need is: Model, Engine, relevant upgrades, and what kind of roads (hwy, city, 50/50)?

    Your post will be added to the list below and deleted afterwards to keep things clean and easy to access.

    **if your vehicle is already listed, please don't let it stop you from entering your own information to verify or correct a current one**

    I was getting 20 but I chopped off my exhaust and put a 5 inch dump and the lower backpressure gave me better mileage.
