Hey guys, im looking into getting a full size blazer for next winter and for offroading on the weekend. Just curious what kind of gas mileage you guys are getting. Lifted or not just let me know, thx!

Oh man thats horrid, lol. I just need one for offroading and REALLY snowy days anyway so i doubt 10 mpg will stop me form getting one in the future considering i wouldnt be driving it long distances. Which years would you guys recommend to look at? i just need something thats easy to work on and not to expensive.

I'M ROLLIN 39.5/18/15 Tsl's SUPER SWAMPERS W/ A 350ci_BORD TO .04_ carb.700 double pump .. HAS A LOT TO W/ WIGHT AND ENGIEN SIZE. SO I SAY I'M ABOUT 9-10 MPG
what a shitty first post...

it has very little to do with engine size. its about gearing. deeper gears off the line, high enough gears on the highway...the closer the gears in between, the better off you will be.

and so now your mileage is what you say it is?? eh, i dont think so. not knowing your gearing and trans, i bet 8 in the city would be about the best that thing does...

I would like a big diesel, but the bad thing is these old blazers are so rare around toronto. The winters just kill them. Damn municipalitys OVER salt on the daily. Its so rare to find one that has an alright body thats under 10 g's or even close

Sucks man, there are plenty rust free ones out here. Mine is undergeared a bit, but that helps on flat highway stretches. I get 13-14 straight highway, 9-11 in town.
