CHEVROLET S-10 TIRE PROBLEM

2001 Chevrolet S-10 • 48 miles

Fuel mileage is in the pits, 2001 chev s-10 w/48k miles, 4.3 L, automatic 4x2, averages 10.2 mpg in town and best town and highway was 13mpg. Full tune up was done, plugs wires cap, rotor fuel filter, air filter, fuel regulator, thermostat, radiator and oil and filter. Has been on a diagnostic scanner and all systems read ok. I did up grade the tires for the winter from 205/75/15 to 235/75/15 but mileage was the same before the tire change. Any hints or ideas to help me get better mileage would be a great help. My second car is a 1996 chev. S10 4.3 L, 4x4 w/148,000, its avg mileage is 15/16 mpg in town, am totally confused as to the poor mileage of the 2001 / 4x2. Thanks for any help or ideas for a fix, I could live with 15/16mpg but would like to see something better if possible, thanks, grady4919@sbcglobal. Net
