Putting a leveling kit on a vehicle raises the front end which causes more wind resistance. Instead of the wind flowing over your angled truck the truck now stands level which cause the air to not flow as nicely over it causing a resistance. Also putting larger tires on increases your rolling resistance, cutting down on fuel economy even more.
