That does seem a little low.. Most likely O2 sensors.. Pre cat ones.. When i was stock i was getting between 18-20 on highway, and around 15 in the little towns around here... Now that i'm running bar lights, 2 inch lift and 33's on 3.73's, along with at least 1 bad 02 sensor, i'm barely breaking 10mpg

I'm back from my trip, after a 3.5 hour highway drive I averaged 14.9

14.9 is a little low but it could be higher. Replace the O2 sensor and check your exhaust manifold for cracks and loose bolts. When is the last time you tuned it up?

Do the check for an exhaust leak and change the O2 sensor. It doesn't have to be a big exhaust leak to effect the O2 sensor.

I'm wondering if all these bad MPG's are part due to not calibrating your odometer after getting bigger tires. If I'm not mistaken if your off 10% in mph you'll be low 10% on your odometer mileage. My 32x11.5 run about 10% off so if I get 290 miles on the odo, I really did 319 miles. I just did a complete tune-up and sensor replacement to pass smog, I got a little over 18 MPG mixed driving with my 32"s and a 3 inch lift, I was quite surprized, I'm going to chack mine again with my GPS to make sure.
