16.6 MPG, is that about right?

I live in snow country with my 2013 JKU auto with 3.21 gears. I've added a couple of hundred pounds in ACE products so far otherwise it's all stock. Is 16.6 MPG about right with 10,000 miles and I drive 50% highway?

I'm getting 16 mpg in 4wd and 17.5 in 2wd in my '13 JK. Yours seems about right considering mods and where you drive.

Yep. In the summer I bet you'll see 20 on the highway if you stay below 60. Better gas and less wind resistance.

I've added a similar amount of weight to my 2013 JKU Sport S with 3.73 along with bigger and heavier tires. Very similar to yourself and I'm seeing between 15.5 and 16.5, maybe an occasional 17. When restting the MPG and driving easy on the highway I see averages betweeen 18 and 19, but it doesn't last for long.

I was getting 15-16 with duratracs, switched to destination a/t's, and now about 17-19, more street friendly tire.

With the recent cold, snow and my lead foot I'm not even seeing 13mpg. 12.7mpg last time I checked. Still its the best $0.45/mile that I could spend.

I have a 2014 JKUS with 3.73 and with around 1850 miles. I am seeing around 14 - 14.5 in the Midwest. 90% is city and I warm it up before driving.

Thanks for the input, I don't feel so bad now. I can't believe my 426 HP Camaro gets better gas mileage.

Even our other vehicle, an Accord, uses 20% more fuel this time of year. My jeep is up around 14L per 100km now as well.

Once the jeep started getting -14, I stopped checking and just kept on modding. That was the point of no return.

I think thats a little high, you need to get bigger tires or a heavier foot.

I'd be thrilled to get 14L/100 km right now. I'm sitting at 19.6. That's a whopping 12 mpg.

Take a long road trip on back country roads during the summer, not the interstate. Bet you see 20. Mixed use or speeds faster than 60 you will see fuel economy plummet, esp. in winter.

Jeez you guys must all drive aggressive all the time. I'm getting ~15mpg mixed driving with my Hemi Grand Cherokee and I stomp on it several times per day in the Chicagoland stoplight grand prix. The 2dr JK averages 19mpg in the same mix, about 2-3 less than in summer.

If you've never used Fuelly, it's great to track your personal consumption to see trends. They also consolidate all vehicles by Manuf/Model so you can see the blended real world consumption and compare yours. Of course, it doesn't capture mods, gear ratios, tire size differences, but it gives you a ballpark. Most useful to track your own trends. I use the mobile app and enter every tank as I fill it. Have done so for the past two vehicles I've owned. Pretty cool to see how many fillups, avg price per gallon, best/worst mileage, etc., etc.

I'd kill for 16 mpg. I'm getting less than 14 but mostly 12.5 the entire time.

Same gear ratio with f/r ARB bumpers, 2.5" lift, and 33" tires/aftermarket wheels--- I'm at about 33K miles on my '12 with manual tranny.

I don't think it's blends, heavy footitis or anything else. The Wrangler just plan and simple get's very poor gas mileage.

Like the dude with the Camaro said, my last Vette and my new 425 hp Mustang get almost twice the mileage. I can easily get 30 mpg on the highway with both of these and usually around 20 in the city. I don't drive real hard, but I do give her the odd time.

The Mangler, if I lucky combined I see around 15.8 on the digital readout. I've driving this thing like a baby for a few tanks to see if I can get it a bit higher without really an luck.

The Canadian Jeep site says the Wrangler gets 21 City and 30 Highway.
I wonder when someone is going to sue these guys for false advertising!!

It's complete BS!!

I average 19mpg with mine. I typically drive pretty conservative.

Perhaps but our gallon is an Imperial Gallon not that little 3.78 liter gallon you have in the US. Ours is 4.54 liters a real man sized gallon.

Don't even ask how long our miles are.

:-) I grew up with the English system, and if I'm not mistaken, only the gallon is different from US to English, then we got into the metric system.

Since I've made my studies in sciences, I can say for sure that the metric system is the best, it simplifies all the mathematical operations, since this system is very logic.

However, being used to the other, it took me a long time to get used to it.

After 40 years being soaked into the metric system, still today, for températures, I'm using the metric one during winter and the English one during summer.

I don't know, it makes sens to me that the water is freezing at 0C and that I'm confortable at 72F... lol....., I mean that 90F seems a lot warmer than 32C.
