Default Calling TBSS Owners, MPG Question

I am looking for a little help from TBSS owners regarding MPG. I am looking at purchasing a TBSS and have heard many different claims of what these vehicles get for fuel mileage. The vehicle would be driven daily with approximately 25% being on the highway. Any help with this information is appreciated.

From what I've gathered and heard, 12-20mpg is a ballpark, so 15mpg avg.

Kinda like driving a full size truck with mainly mixed driving.

That's kind of what I figured, but heard varying figures. I would like to see 15ish, since that is what the car it is replacing gets.

Best I've seen on my 07 TBSS is 16.5, around town is 12 - 13. And that"s not getting on it, it gets worse from there, but it is fun.

With a cam and a stall my highway mpg is around 18ish

City isnt great, around 12-13?

It all depends how you drive, it can get thirsty if you have a heavy foot.

When mine was a pretty large cam and 3600 stall in town was junk (10-12) but highway was around 17. This is AWD also. Rwd will be a tad better

15 to 16 around town and about 17-18 hwy if you drive 65-70 and falls off quick after that. As soon as you start to mod it drops from there

10-12 for me.
