Thought I would share some fuel info today.

Roughly 400 mile mostly highway trip today today with the Tremor.

I averaged 19.6 by calculations. Trip meter said 19.8

Happy with that as I had a terrible head wind and flowing with traffic was in the 78 to 80 mph range for a good part of the trip.

Just clocked 3800 miles. Sure I could do better on a calmer day and more moderate speeds. Wind was gusting to above 30 for most of the trip.

Considering the larger tires, windy conditions,and factory lift I don’t think that’s too bad.

I've only had mine for 2 weeks and just did my 1st 300 mile drive over the weekend and averaged 21.6mpg. Tons better than my prev gmc canyon with 15mpg (however, it had a 3" body kit).

Loved the torque when going uphill though ! Left a TRD tacoma biting the dust ;).

Again … these fuel threads lol… but yea with the prices of gas now-a-days and our government lying to us, basically saying it will be coming down for the past 2 months, then war (possibly now) with one of the highest gas supply countries … we are in deep crap!

By the way… lifted 2” and 305/18’s .. I barely get 16MPG lol

I just took a 600 mile trip and got 17mpg on my 4x4 with 285/70/17 KM3 mud tires. 75mph its ok on fuel usage but at 85mph man it really drops off.

I'm glad I didn't get the Ford Pro pack and get locked in to using only 91 octane. I might pick up a small motorcycle or trail bike. That's what I did during the recession.

Look at Honda groms. I've got two that are camed, tuned, geared etc and still get 120 mpg. And will run 65+ mph on dual sport tires.

Motorcycle not a bad idea. Been using 93 since day one with FP tune. Min recommended 91 but nit available here. 93 grade here now at $4.20/gal. At least I can default back to stock tune to run 87 at last resort

Are they comfortable for 6'0" person? I was looking at CT125 the other day.

Yeah if it came with a switch for 87 I would absolutely get it. I paid $3.80 the other day for 91, no 93 around here.

Yeah I don’t see getting more than 20 mpg out of this truck unless I drove 55 and you know I just can’t. ?

Request: When posting fuel economy numbers, please include the rear diff axles ratio and wheel and tire size and tuned or not tuned.

I have the FX4 package with 4.10 locking diff option and (summer) 20" wheels with 275/55R20 tires.
Also, have the Ford Performance tune. With all this I can barely get 16 to 17 mpg on a steady freeway cruse.

Wondering how these items affect the MPG verses configurations... I'm sure it's not in a good way...:wink:

I pack a CT125 on a hitch carrier...in case I get stuck or just to get around when RTT camp is spread out...I'm 6' and it's very comfortable...it's not for any road over 50mph but great on trails...

Stock Tremor, put 310 miles on it today. 50% mountain driving under 40mph several stops along way and 50% interstate highway flowing with traffic and got 21.9mpg manually calculated. Computer said 23mpg. 87 octane fuel.
