Default Fuel Mileage...?

So what are the rest of you 4.0 guys/gals getting for fuel mileage...?

In my '96 I get about 350 to a tank, I run 93 octane fuel, I believe it is better than the 87 octane around here.

currently is 20 mpg hiway 87 octane, seems to run best using 88 oct. cheveron ,when I go to New Mexico can not find it in AZ. Ultra gauge shows 22 -23 mpg but I really do not trust it, I might go all the way empty if I carry a fuel can around one day. I have never been on empty always keep 1/4 tank to keep the settlement down in the bottom.

I average 27 IMPG in the summer, around 22 IMPG in the winter with my '09 Sport, 4.0L/5spd/3.55:1. That drops down to 21 IMPG hauling my 23' Sailboat. My father's '10 FEL 2.3L/5spd/3.73:1 is averaging 35-40 IMPG depending on where he's driving that week.

you should only be putting 87 in the tank anyways. Our trucks are not tuned for high octane unless you have a tuner.

also I feel your pain on the 4x4 deal! When I went to the beach last summer, I watched the truck just drink the gas!

I was averaging just over 20 mpg. Too soon to tell with the new tires.

You are harming your engine running 93 in it. Use the correct fuel and your milage will probably improve.
