Post MPG Thread for all V8's!

What kind of MPG are you getting in your V8 ranger. not tahoe's........... ;-)

big question loads of people are thinking but i still haven't seen a whole thread of ya'll just talking about this.

Now i do mean just the truck, not your MPG towing the world around.

But just as driving and flooring it here and there.

I know not all engines are tuned alike, so if you know your HP too, Brag a little

Thanks people!

Glad I don't own a Tahoe, gets worse mileage than my truck...

On average around town, around 17 with the 225/75/16's , about 14-15 with the 245/45/17 mustang wheels.
On the interstate it gets up to 24 with the bigger tires, not sure with the smaller wheels. With the camper shell on the interstate, down to around 20. Best mileage achieved while doing a consistent 70 mph.

Probably because....
- Loads of people haven't swapped in a V8
- Loads of people aren't thinking about it
- Those who have, could probably care less about the MPG

I don't know about that, they just opened up on tahoe's right from the start.

Besides, v8's are awesome but look about getting around the same mileage from the standard v6 model. Do the swap if you really feel like spending the money for the extra power. in the end it was definitely worth it.
