    Extreme fuel consumption question

    I don't think this is an extreme build question, I see Austin labeled the section extreme builds and such, BUT, and Cuz I do not need the v8 jeep fags telling me shit...
    I put this here.

    My crew is going to run duesy ershim this sept. And is my first time there.
    All my crew runs "other rigs"....
    So the ride
    83 22re, w56 duals, 31" pizza cutters, 4:10s locked f/r.
    I hung a 14 gallon tank in it.
    I just got to 200 miles on the fresh eng., and have not gotten a trail mpg average done yet.
    How much fuel you guys burn?
    Thanx for lookin.

    83 22r duals 5.29s 37s with a 12 gallon tank. A full day of wheeling I can use around half a tank but usually not quite that much.

        I'd bring 10 gallons just to be safe.

          I ran it in an FJ40 with a 5.7L Vortec. I get maybe 12mpg tops and 7-8 mpg in 4x4. I have a 16 gal tank and carried two Jerry Cans. The guys I was with were running full-sized trucks. I don't recall how much fuel I used, but nobody in the group had a fuel issue. Gas up at Shaver Lake before you go in and again when you leave the trail.

              You have to get better mileage with a 22RE than I do with a 350 Chevy.

                  Why are you hauling fuel for the Jeep fags? Do you fix their broken shit for them too?
