2.5l gas mileage

What can I expect to get in mileage on a 95 with 2.5l 5 speed?

More than 10 but less than 20. Unless you plan all trips to be downhill with a tailwind. You might break 20 then......

I love that the MPG numbers are coming out here and not one single person thought to ask what size tires and gearing your running. I wonder how they come up with what mileage you can expect lmao.

I own a V8 and bought it when gas was just as high and takes Primium fuel. I was just curious as to what they get.

I've been driving my 95 YJ, 2.5l for about twelve years, its completely stock, and I get 18 to 20 mpg. I'm driving back country roads mostly and rarely do I get up over 60/65 mph, 40 mph is a happy speed. Lifes is to fast as it is.

What size tires? Stock gearing? Lifted? Any body armor or other weight adding accessories?

I would say between 14-20 depending on how you drive. Any faster than 60-65 it's gonna drop off because the rpm will be close to 3k. I think I average around 17ish in mine.

If your hyper-milling master you should be able to get 20 easy..haha..There's a guy on here getting 25mpg's w/ his TDI swapped jeep, I've read there capable of 40mpgs if geared correctly. But I think once you go "diesel" mpg's are kind of irrelevant, because you can get fuel at a discount if your resourceful enough.

My relatively stock-ish 2.5L (being that I had a 1" shackle lift and 29" tires) gave me around 22 max on the highway (on the straight and level that is) and around 14-15 city, depending on how I drove it. Average I would do around 18ish. My commute is 22 miles a day, 4 miles is climbing a steep 5% grade that I had to roll 3rd the whole time, so I'm sure that killed it a bit.

It would be normal to see around 18mpg average for a 2.5L YJ rolling stock.

I also have the 2.5L and 5-speed, the previous owner installed 235/70r-15 low rolling resistance tires and I still only got around 15-16mpg. Then again, I'm an inveterate lead foot. I just installed a 2.5" lift with 31" Duratracs and surprisingly, mileage hasn't changed much.

My 87 is basically stock with a 5 speed inline 6. I find the mileage I get (17) is directly proportionate to the way I drive. If I keep it under 65 and shift at the perfect interval I will get the optimum mileage for my particular ride. We all know Jeeps were never designed for speed and/or mileage. Don't dwell on that. For speed I have a Mustang. For mileage I have a Prius. But for the best ride I own it's always driving the Jeep. The best of all worlds. IMO

Xpress 22 is pretty good, And I agree with 87, you have to keep the rpm's low. I will try tweaking the map and ignition timing to see if I can't squeeze anything else out of this 2.5..Maybe i'll even pull out the ole Hydrogen generator..haha

I run 33's, 4:11 gears, 2.5l, 5-speed and I use it only for to and from work which is 11 miles each way with no more than about 50 mph and 6-8 lights/stops each way. I consistently get about 14.6 MPG. I've tried being easy with the throttle, normal and hard, doesn't matter. Every time I fill up, right around 14.6 MPG.

My DD is 12 mpg my YJ is about 15 mpg and my wife's Dd is about 17 mpg. So I like my daily comfort, I love fun driving my YJ in the weekends and her has 330 horse power. No hybrids here and I am getting old enough to not give a sh$) about gas prices. We don't drive that many miles.
