    Had an '83 toyota that was stock on 32's for a while, it got between 17 and 22 with the 32's. The toyota in my sig gets about 10-12 mpg, best i ever got was with a 30mph wind at my back for an hour on the interstate. I was able to pull 5th gear at 1700 RPM and got nearly 15mpg for that stretch.

    87 Dodge Raider SWB,

    Currently gets 17/18 mpg with the stock 2.6L on 31s with 2 inch body lift, cranked torsion bars and longer shackles in the rear, LSD front and rear (from factory). I'm going to be swapping in a 2.6L Turbo from a 89 Conquest/Starion I just purchased. Most others that have done the swap get about 18/19 mpg city and 21/22 mpg highway, on 33's.:D Its primarily going to be my DD when done.

    87 Cherokee, 4.0, 3.73 gears and 31x9.5x15 tires. In the city I average around 17 or so. Couldn't tell you about highway due to the longest I drive it is around the 3 miles to work.
