Default 35s fuel mileage! Lift?

I got a 2004 and I have a 3 inch front 2 inch back lift kit I haven't installed yet?
I hate a set of 35s but iv Hurd mixed results
I currently get 15 to 16 mpg in winter and 20 in summer!
What's is it gona be with my lift and tires on?

I guess my question is how you are getting that good of milage. I have a 04 Ram 1500 with the 5.7 hemi and I'm lucky if I can get 10 mpg.

Sell it and buy a Prius.
Not much you can do. You can invest in a cold air intake.
