18 city
22 highway

All with 265/75/16 tires

Honestly if you want a CAI you need to invest in a tuner to see any difference.

depends on what your "city" is. Where I live, in town driving can consist of 40 mph.

I average in the mid 17's with 33" tires, 4.10 gears and a 5 spd

My 2000 Ranger, 4x4 Off Road, 3.0 engine, K&N air filter, with 224000+ miles on it is getting 23.25 mpg on the highway. It is the 5 speed stick. I have 245/70 R16 Cooper tires on it, but they are getting worn out. This is without the air conditioner running.

Gotta admit, that figure surprised me.
