Re: How much do lifts affect gas milage?
A lift doesn't directly affect MPG, but you'll probably be adding bigger tires too? I assume thats what the lift is for?
A lift will make your already UN-aerodynamic vehicle, even more Un-aerodynamic, ya know what I mean? It takes more power to push a taller brick through the wind, than a shorter brick.
As for how many MPG worse, or a percentage worse, forget it....but it certainly won't help matters any.
I used to hit the high 20's in MPG with my truck, but after the 2" lift, and 33" tires, the best I can get is 19 MPG, but thats much more due to the tires than the actual lift.
