2000 f150 4x4 4.2 mileage?

whats going on fellas...sold my dad my truck...its a 2000 f150 4x4 4.2 v6 with 285/75/16 buckshots..107,000 miles....could someone tell me how to calculate the mileage..cause it wont calibrate to that size of a tire...want to know wat kinda mileage he gets, comes factory it says with 235 but that would look terrible..had 255 when i bought it in 2003...i reckon total mileage on the tank with the 285s is around 275 or less....love to know fellas...preciate it...

might be an idea to post this question somewhere other than the Raptor forum?

just reset the trip odo when you fill up then divide miles driven by how many gallons it takes at the next fill up. thats your miles per gallon
