My 89 Bronco with a 351w and C6 got about 12-14 mpg overall.

all my toyotas (22R,22RE x3,5vze) got about 14-17 mpg.


And you wont be able to pick up highschool chicks in a Toyota nearly as well as a monster truck bronco like you have now.

The last time I filled up my truck was in December. I have a 4.3 chevy TBI in it. I get around 13 MPG but it sure is fun to drive. Just sucks the gas though. I don't care that is why I bought a better gas mileage car and the other company I work for pays for my fuel.

Now that this has been moved, try this on for size.

Because you asked a WILDLY vague question, i am going to give you very broad answers.

2wd 4cyl stock toys will average mid to upper 20s

4wd 4cly stock toys will average lower 20s to upper teens

4wd 6cyl stock toys will average mid to upper teens.

It all gets worse from there dending on what you do as far as "lifted and locked". If you just lift it, it wont be much worse if you stay on a stock tire size.

I didnt notice a change in fuel economy after installing a locker on my dd, if any i used less gas because i didnt have to try and throttle through uneven shit offroad.

It wasn't as vague before they moved it, asked this question referring to 22RE owners

"Lifting and Locking" it won't hurt MPG's nearly as much as driving like a a-hole.

A F.I. 22RE should be fine unless you throttle the beatch like a Prius in the carpool lane. Ask us big block guys how we do it
