My girlfriend and I went to Sacramento to visit some of her family this weekend, we had a blast and got to see her new cousin blah blah blah. The real excitement didnt start until I filled my truck up at the gas station when we got back home (I filled up before we left too, for milage readings :thumbup). From home, the drive is just over two hours long and is 110 miles from my house to her uncles place. Anyways here's the goods.

I went a total of 236 miles this weekend. When I filled the truck up tonight, it took 14.4 gallons of gas. Now we do the math and I averaged 16.39 miles to the damn gallon! Now that was 98% highway miles at a comfortable speed of 62 MPH, but anyway you look at it, my lifted bronco got 16 miles to the gallon :shocked



That is all! :chili::chili::chili::chili::chili::chili:

I wish, I average 10 regardless of city or highway with just me in the truck. I was pretty happy going camping with 4 passengers and 1000 pounds of gear over the pass and back and I still averaged 10 over 240 miles.

Stan that is great. Hopefully when I get my 4.56 gears my mileage will jump back up.



Did you correct your speedo?

Yup, via PSOM (you're out of luck on that one; 92-96 only).


Bonzai, I took 205 to I-5, I've never tried the other way to get to Elk Grove.

I share your C6 pain
:stupid
C6's bring the gas mileage suck!
Well, I wouldn't say that they're that bad. I got 15.5 mpg on the Turnpike at about 65 mph average. That was me, my brother and probably 500 lbs of extra crap along with what I normaly carry :shrug

Still do wish I had a 4 speed though. :cry But knowing that the trans I have is one of the best/better slushboxes makes me :chili:


Glad to hear that your BKO is gets ok fuel milage. :thumbup
