I did every possible thing you can do to tune it up and i dont drive 80 on the highway. Last fill up was 420 miles when the light came on and when i filled it back up it took 15 gallons to fill it to the brim so it still had about 3 gallons left. That calculates out to 24.7 mpg and that was a trip that i was doing 70-75 and hit traffic but its gotten better. I drove it to southern jersey last week on less than a half tank and everything is stock and nothing is out of adjustment,my speedo is right on with the gps. Besides for 4wd mine is bare bones also no power anything not even a/c

i try no to let in rev above 2k while cruising on the highway and try not to make sudden stops or gun it. I love driving it long distances even thought some people say they arent comfortable and are bad on gas. Seems comfortable to me and i cant conplain about the fuel economy b/c it gets almost as good as my dads awd subaru.

180? you sir have a problem. 350 isnt abnormal at all. i get about 16 mpg which is 320 to a tank.

Completely stock, and keeping it that way...
