Default Official MPG Poll

Jason (WolfPack) has a great idea. Instead of all of the threads that are floating around with mileage listed, here is a poll.

Please calculate your mileage by first reseting your mileage when you fill up. At the next fuel fill up, divide the displayed mileage on the trip odometer by the gallons pumped.

When you vote on the poll, please post and include your vehicle information (possibly including engine size, gear ratio, auto or manual transmission, 2wd or 4wd, etc), your driving habits, type of driving (city, highway, mix, stop-n-go, etc) and the weather experienced.

Even though you won't be able to vote more than once, if you have updated information, post it.

This thread is for mileage information only. Discussion about the mileage values posted is not permitted.

Woo hoo!! Looks good Kyle!

I'm holding down 13 mpg, due to the extra weight of my grille guard, drag from the roof rack, wider A/T tires, and I probably need a tune up! 4.3L V6, running premium (but no tune), 4wd. Pretty good mix of highway and city driving.

Closest I could pick was the 18-19, but mine actually gets 19-20, 3.42 axle, easy on the throttle with ~70% highway/30% city, see my signature for other drivetrain info.

Default RE: Official MPG Poll

Generally at school or around town I drive slightly agressive but usually pretty easy. Usually short trips on city streets and county highways usually involving hills in some places. I have a 4x4 that I drive 90% of the time or more in 2wd. 4door with 235/75R15 BFG AT tires, 3.73 rear gears (not sure about the front) and a good sized speaker system with 1000watt subwoofer amplifier (causes more electrical system strain which might have a slight effect on gas mileage if the 50 extra pounds in the back doesn't hurt it).

I have gotten 25mpg on 3 occasions and multiple times with 21-23mpg, with similar road/driving conditions. This occurs when I drive to and from school loaded up lightly (not to the roof and with 5 guys in it like normal). This is also when a majority of the driving is on county highway (55mph speedlimit, doing 55-60mph) There are very little stops and or turn offs on this route. Otherwise if I do 65-70mph I generally get about 19mpg. It varies a lot between 14-23mpg. Oh and I generally get 9-10mpg if I am doing a lot of off roading (4x4hi pretty much all the time and 4x4 lo quite often + spinning tires)

Good idea on this polling thread.

I get about 18-19ltr per 100km. Doing the math that works out to about 12-13mpg (US). Mostly town driving. Speeds around 50 to 70 kph with no bumper to bumper traffic. Not yet taken her on a long trip but hopefully I'll get better consumption.
