I did that, and my total came out worse...... I don't think this is right...

30/33=.9 14.4x.9=12.96mpgs ??????

Do you maybe divide the new size by the old? That gives me a little better mpgs....

InfernoGirl And your lift doesn't affect your MPG's, tires and wheels do. How long since your last tune up? O2 sensors good?

4 banger not getting good mpg?

i have noticed that my 4 banger is just flying throught the gas lately. its lifted 2 in suspension w/ 31's. any ideas why my fuel economy would be so low? im talking 9-10mpg? shouldnt it be around 15-20? i understand that i have a lift but i still think that it can be improved. ANY IDEAS?
