Was the distance you traveled also "real world based" or did you use an incorrect number off of the odometer?
I get what your trying to say, my speedo isn't adjusted for the larger tire diameter so my distance traveled is based off of the factory ~31" tire. I just don't see how it's relevant to anything.
If you want to know how far I've traveled on the new tires it's about 1200 miles to today. Drove to Little Rock from Dallas. Back to Dallas then to Houston. Ive also done allot of highway driving while I've been here in Houston.
Ok let me try to explain... your odometer is off by about 5.5%. On a 1200 mile trip, that is about 66 miles that you traveled but did not figure into your mpg calculations. Are you hand calculating mileage or reading it off the overhead?
