I guess I'm pretty luck.

In my 05 Sport 4.0L 6-speed (all stock) I get about 300 miles on a tankful, which is about 16.5 gallons tops.

So im mixed driving I probably get 18-19 MPG.

All this is with the top off.

I have an 05 TJ - 4.0, 4.56 gearing with 33" ProComps. I recently checked my mileage with a Garmin GPS to be accurate and I'm getting right at 14.0. That's probably about 75% hwy.

05's have a 19.6 gallon tank. So that would make it about 15mpg.

True enough, but when I fill up it only takes 16-16.5 gallons to fill, which leads me to believe that the gauge reads "E" but there's still some gas left in there.

I just checked my stock JK 2 door X model, with about 2000 miles on it, and all I got was 15.8 mpg

Just got gas. Took 15.1 gallons and went 282 miles (tank wasn't empty and gas light wasn't on).

What's that, like 18.7 MPG? That's about 75% highway driving, though my highway driving is done at rush hour going to/from work, so traffic is pretty heavy.

Last tank... 18.5 with doors and top off with bikini top. 50% highway miles. This was my second tank after changing out the throttle body on my 2.5 to a 4.0 body. Took the restrictions out of the air box and put in plugs, wires, cap, rotor and filter.
95 yj w/ 30x9.5 MT's.
The first tank after the swap was 15.6 mpg.

I have a 2000 Sahara V6 4.0L Automatic w/ Soft top and am getting 12MPG average. I have 111,000 miles on it and just within the past few thousand miles replaced the spark plugs and cables. Also had a new radiator installed and changed the belt, but I still can't keep up with the cost of gas the thing guzzles.

What else could I change out to improve my gas milage. If i could get up to 15 or 16 (which I think is highly unlikely) I would be so much happier, but at the rate I drive gas is costing more then anything.

How well do the Jeep's handle the performance chips that re-balance the gas ratio?

I can get 215 miles or so before the low gas light comes on. Apparently it's a 19 gallon tank too.

Thanks

Be lighter on the skinny pedal. Slower starts, coast whenever possible. Other than that, you can swap in a 5 speed, that's about it. I've never seen a programable chip that improves gas mileage, usually it's the exact opposite AND you have to buy premium gas. I had a Stage 2 Jet Chip at one point, it was more powerful, but sucked down the go go juice.

Put your top/windows/doors back on, and drive with an egg under the peddle.
