All the more reason for the much needed sarcasm font.

Stagman I always check the speedo with one of my GPS units then I know my true speed and odometer factor. FYI I have yet to ever encounter a speedometer or odometer that is correct from the factory. Always shows faster and farther than it really is.

If you increase your tire size by 10% when your odometer says you have gone 100 miles you have actually gone 110...simple math.
i just said it makes sense.... haha. i wasnt being sarcastic. and the doh was for myself.

Changing Your Jeep Speedometer Gear

viclava My Wrangler runs good with no indicated loss of power since the Rc2.5" lift and BFG MT K2's.

pokey Your speedometer should be re-calibrated and m/t's on the road, well....

BLEGAN im not sure what the norm is as far as how much mileage decreases, but it does seem a bit excessive. if youre not getting any codes for the o2 sensors, its probably not them.. but maybe check your cat? i think you'd get a sensor code for that though.. im not sure haha. ive got both codes for both o2 sensors right now but i havent lost any mileage, so im not fudging with them. do you notice any actual loss in power?

Major mileage decrease since 32" tire install

Let me just start off by stating that I knew I was going to decrease my already crappy mileage, by installing 32" BFG Mud Terrain K2's, but I would typically get around 200-220 miles per tank of gas on my Wrangler(which BTW has the smaller fuel tank), but now I get maybe 160 give or take. My engine has not thrown any codes, but could it be that my o2 sensors should be replaced? I'm kind of at a loss here. I should state that most of my driving is around town driving.
