Gas Mileage

has anyone improved gas mileage for the 4.0, its auto, by adding
a aftermarket part to engine, a couple of MPG would be fine.

diminishing returns.....

have to watch your driving behavior and keep your jeep in top maintenance condition.

I am removing all unneccessary weight (maybe will help?)... but most of the gas waste is just sitting / idling that I notice.

A 30 minute trip today I spent 10 minutes stopped according to my Garmin GPS trip meter.

Re-gearing. Tires. Lead foot.

This doesnt have to do with the engine BUT it does have to do with gas mileage

As far as engine goes, i dont believe in throttle body spacers, or putting "newer year intakes" on older engines stuff.

Just a good air filter ( K&N etc.) and exhaust to match it.
