22 mpg!!!

so i went up to lousiville last night(from nashville) and i guess i had about a 10mph wind heading due north. i travelled about 60-65 the whole way. tried to stay steady on the throttle. when i finally filled up with gas, i did my calculations and......*drum roll*.......21.9 mpg!!! woo-hoo!!! and i pumped every last ounce of gas i could into that tank so if anything, i put in more than i used, which would yield a higher mpg! i'm so excited!!!! oh....2.5L, 141,000 on the clock, peacesetter header, dynomax cat-back, 4.0 throttle body, k&n filter, upgraded coil and wires, runnin 89 octane. i could get used to that with gas bein 2.79/gal

Right on! That's what I used to run until I replaced my O2 sensors; now it's about 25-28mpg highway. Whoever says the 2.5L can't get good gas mileage is flat out wrong.

Hey, I'm thrilled out of my silly little mind because I just cracked 19.1 MPG in my stock 92 4.0 HO (YJ) with puny tires... and THAT'S taken some work, too.

Dang, that's awsome. I'm happy with anything over 15 and that's rare.
