So I finally calculated my MPG and got 24.4. What I was hoping for more closer to what Roxor says. What are you guys getting?

No idea. I fill off a tank without a meter.

I got 25.5 mpg recently after about 260 miles of higway driving. Measured from one full tank to another.
The tank flows over so easily and makes a mess. I always know when its full. 😀

Someone will ask... Yes, my tires are bigger than stock and the odo is stock. 😀
The 255-85-16 tires are off just about 10%. If the odo shows 100 miles driven, I actually drove 110. That's part of the 25.5 mpg calc.

25.5 mpg is not great for a 3500 lbs vehicle with a 2.5l turbo diesel (Gilomen Stage 2). My diesel pickup gets about 17 mpg at 8000 lbs, 450 hp and 1100 ft-lbs.
BUT!!! The amount of fun I have cruising around in my Roxor and being able to cover 300 miles highway.... I will take 25.5 mpg all day long.

Is Frances peak the mountain with the (I think) radar on top? I fly over that just about every week. Just curious.

Yes, I'm sure Roxasuras has better pics. One you can see the towers in distance

I drove mine around town and off road and I typically saw around 25mpg. I'm sure if you took it down the highway you'd probably clear 30. Like with most diesel enthusiast websites there are a couple guys on here to boldly claim they see 40-50. I think I saw a guy here a couple months ago who claimed synthetic oil would achieve a 30% improvement. They probably work for Amsoil, or Penzoil.

I'm an amsoil Guy. 30% is way high. 6% increase is about all you will see. I've only done the oil on mine
