Really not much you can do without gettin rid of the pretty aftermarket stuff lol...

I've got a 4 cyl manual and my last tank i avg'd 19 mpg and it seems like i got slightly less on this tank (havent filled up yet so wont know til tomorrow for sure) with a drop in KN filter (yes i know the debate on them, figured id just try it for myself and see) but i did do about 100 miles less hwy driving on this tank so its tough to decide.

I'd guess theres nothin noticeable you can do though...could always ditch the girlfriend

good luck man!

Get a 2nd car that gets better gas mileage and use the Jeep on the weekends and when it's nice out. Or just enjoy the ride and don't worry about the gas...
