My daily driver stock '94 on 225/75 tires gets about 24 consistently, which is a mix of city and highway miles.

My trail junk '88 was getting about 22-23 on the highway, with 32"s and 4.10s. (That is after calculating the gearing, etc).
Now it's on 36"s and I haven't regeared yet, so it has dropped dramatically.

Getting the Wheeling Fever
I have an 89 reg cab pickup 22re manual. Engine only has a few thousand miles on a Jasper. 31" Michelin MS/LTXs, 4.56s, Everything else stock.

I have always gotten 24 mpg pure highway down to 20/21 mpg in stop-and-go driving with a lot of idling in traffic (which i hate having to drive in). The worst I ever got was 17.5 towing a 5x8' Uhaul trailer on flat interstate. Best I ever got was a one-time 27mpg going about 55 pure highway a few years back.

this has to be the most honest report of mileage ratings I've seen.

seems like most of the guys are getting around 17-19mpg with minor modifications and larger tires. I'm glad to see that my truck is about in line with everyone else's.

on another board I follow, this question was asked, and I saw post after post after post of people saying they were getting 24mpg+ and they could spin the wheels at all 4 corners in their 22R(E)s. bah!

BeaterYota and BTN,
You seem to be doing a bit better than the majority so far, and still have some mods.
Any hints/suggestions on how you got it there?

Getting the Wheeling Fever
The only mod I really have is the 31s but I have the 4.56s to bring it back to stock gearing. Also, I am at 5k feet so maybe the thinner air helps a bit? Less wind resistance and less dense air intake. I keep the engine tuned to factor specs all the time. I use only toyota replacement ignition/tune up parts. My tires are street biased michelins and I keep them aired up. I use synthetic gear oil. I don't have a/c. Also, I drive pretty converservatively...I rarely push the engine hard unless going up a steep hill. The only load I usually carry is myself. Maybe all those things added up?

Gnarls, was that number corrected for your 32s & 4.10s?

He is using his GPS to get the mileage, no need for correction.

My mileage is 12 at tops that is if I am driving the rig or towing it with my Dodge 2500, both get about 12. However, the Dodge has a lot more comfort and an AC!!!!!
