Welp I ended up replacing my TPS sensor in my 2.3L since it was recommended that it causes the transmission to lock/unlock on highway speeds if it's going bad or flaky. (main issue was that it was causing a possible pending CEL at first) Which I can 100% confirm it was doing for YEARS and just always thought it was because I had larger tires so it had trouble going in or staying in overdrive. Now I know it was the damn TPS sensor.

Prior to that I would say I got 23mpg on solid highway driving. After replacing the tps sensor I now get almost 27mpg. I get 100miles to the tank per quarter on the gauge cluster. w00t w00t! I wish I would have replaced this sooner.

My truck feels completely different driving on the highway and the RPM's not going up and down all the time.

after just finishing up with fresh fluids all around, including diff, tranny, p/s, brakes, coolant, clutch, engine oil... my highway mileage just bumped back up to nearly 27mpg, that was a pleasant surprise!
99 2.5

I bought a '98 2.5 about two weeks ago, and so far I've averaged 25mpg. I usually drive 50/50 city and highway. I have definitely been impressed with my little truck so far!

Default Re: Hows your GAS MILEAGE on ur truck? Let me know here.

I live in south Florida and have a 2010 2.3 auto with no mods other than 235 Michelins (stock tires are 225) and I only get 20mpg - bought it new and used to get 21-22 with the stock tires. My mileage doesnít change over the course of the year yet my driving habits donít change and the A/C is off most of the time from December to May (itís on nonstop from May to October.) I drive about 50/50 city/highway and average 12k/year. I would love to get 25 like some guys are getting but my truck didnít get close to that when it was brand new! I drive easy too. Any tips?
