I am up in Colorado Springs (6,035ft) and will be heading to Ben Wheeler Texas (531ft) about 810 miles away.

Ill be driving my Wagoneer with the mods listed in my sig, and a fresh side pipe set up.

I'm still breaking her in so my speeds will vary
between 60-75 mph
A gear calculator with no variables gives me
2,210 RPM at 60
2,394 RPM at 65
2,579 RPM at 70
2,763 RPM at 75


How many MPG do you think the old girl will squeeze out with my 3.31 and 31" set up. I've heard the more power you have the less fuel it takes to push it down the road. And I've heard displacement has a price.

Chime in if you have a similar build and I'll post results when I return

12-13 @ 65mph. Your cam is very close to my Edelbrock. With the 31" tires are you adjusting for the increased gear ratio. The stock is 28.5" tire

You have increased your "rolling gear ratio" with the larger tire by 7%. So in effect for every 10 miles on your odometer, you have traveled 10.7miles. While calcuating your mpg, multiply by 1.07 for your correct mileage. Cuz ya want every advantage you can get

Duly noted! I'll be sure to factor that in. Thanks Rock.

I was just going to go off of the mileage on my GPS for accuracy.
