Thumbs up 3.8 Driving for Dummies

You are getting 18 in the city and 23-24 on the highway in your 3.8L auto? That's better than anyone I've heard. Is it stock? Do you have a different tune? What gears? Or do you just coast a lot ? Teach us your driving secrets.

Because of these questions, I decided to create a handy guide for Jeep guys with the 3.8 to help them maximize their driving experience with their JK. Contrary to popular belief, you CAN get decent mileage and you DO have enough power to keep up with traffic, if you just use a little common sense.


My 2010 has a bone stock drivetrain. It's an automatic with 3.73 gears and I ponied up for the trac-loc rear. I've added a few things that increased weight a little, but I offset that by not having a back seat. They're not secrets, just common driving sense!!
The first and most important tip is NO FAST STARTS!! You burn the most fuel accelerating from a stop. Just a nice, steady pull. You don't have to granny it, but don't feel the need to get off of a light faster than everyone else either. The Jeeps' optional 3.73 and 4.10 gear will get you moving pretty well with light throttle. 3.21 guys would need a little more pedal effort to get off the line with the same speed at the shorter geared Jeeps, but cruising and highway RPM WILL offset this if you drive smartly.
Second, slow, controlled throttle movements. No quick applications of throttle and don't drive "on the gas, off the gas, on the gas". You get heavy sprays of fuel into the cylinders every time you apply the throttle. Drive with the gas pedal, not the brake pedal.
If you see a red light ahead, let off the gas early and let it coast to the light. This also makes your brakes last longer!!
Don't blast up hills and don't be afraid to let the auto downshift out of OD on a steeper incline. In many cases, you burn more fuel lugging the engine than you would by forcing a downshift through added throttle. This is where it drives me crazy when people say the JK can't get up hills. YOU HAVE TO LET IT DOWNSHIFT!! The JK will easily accelerate up the steepest of inclines if you let it. OD is designed to conserve fuel on flat roads, that's it. I wish I could take everyone who complains about the JK's power for a ride with me. You have to know how to drive the damn thing!! It's not the V8 pickup/SUV or sports car you just traded in on it (and I know a lot of you did, search for the "First time Jeep owners: What did you drive before your Jeep" thread).
Manual transmission guys will hurt their mileage just as much by short shifting as they will by winding out the engine too far. Short shifting and lugging the engine will cause you to increase throttle pressure to compensate, hurting mileage. Spinning the engine too high in every gear will tell the computer to increase fuel to match the RPM. Every Jeep will be a tiny bit different, but you'll feel it when you're shifting at the right rpm. You want to keep the engine in the powerband between shifts, so your RPM shouldn't drop too low when you shift. Get out and experiment with the best shifting RPM for your particular Jeep and driving conditions. you'll know it when you've got it right.
On the highway, pick a lane and stay in it. Accelerating from 65 to 75 to pass or merge with a faster lane will burn a ton of fuel as well. I like the slow lane because it's a Jeep, not a race car. 65mph is plenty and if you needed to make an emergency maneuver, anything much faster is going to be really hairy. Draft in behind a semi or other large vehicle when you can (just be careful of your windshield!!). Even at a safe following distance, wind resistance is much lower than it would be out on your own.
Lastly, don't be in a hurry to get everywhere. I do the speed limit to 5 over everywhere but on major highways, where I just keep up with traffic. Again, it's a Jeep, it's not designed to do high speeds.
In addition to these things, keep a clean air filter in your engine. Remember to change your oil at the recommended intervals. For higher mileage Jeeps, don't forget a set of plugs, wires and a fuel filter. Fuel consumption will increase on higher mileage Jeeps, that's unavoidable, but you can lessen it's effect with proper maintenance.

I took a 350 mile trip to WV last November, which included a 70mph average on the highways, with some fairly steep grades in the foothills. I averaged just under 24mpg that trip on winter blend gas (which is typically less efficient). I've seen 24+ on the flat highways around my area on a regular basis. All these things still apply to modified Jeeps. You're never going to get back the mileage you lost when you swapped gears, added weight, etc. BUT, you can still maximize what you do have with a little common sense. The 3.8 and the 4 speed auto aren't the best combination of parts, but you can get the most out of it in factory trim by changing your driving habits just a little.

It would be cool if others would add their tips or tricks to getting the most out of the 07-11 JK. Please, let's keep this civil and informative. If you just want to bash the JK or the 3.8, do it somewhere else.

pretty much ditto on your suggestions Mr. Sinister.

I guess I drive like a geezer....but one that continues to average overall 22.5 mpg in my 08 JK auto/3.73. I've personally put 11K now on entire rig than has 26K on it. It has plenty of power in all circumstances I've tried....although towing a 1500# load did change my expectations of acceleration a bit.

I have found staying in the wind shadow (NOT tailgating!!) of large rigs on the freeway for 10-30 miles increases my overall MPG considerably.

I go over the Cascade Range and Coastal mountain range fairly often, and have come to recognize places where I favor punching the OD button OFF for a few miles on certain climbs and corners.

I like the 'eventually' philosophy: eventually I'll get up to my chosen speed....and eventually it will pay off at the next gas stop.

Also, I like to plan my fuel stops if possible, around those pumps with the best prices....currently in my area, CostCo and Safeway tend to have the best prices more often.

And by habit as well as preference, I stay away from the Jaws of Hell city rush hour traffic.

Mythbusters did the drafting experiment, and I believe that at 20 car lengths it was still 3% less wind resistance. That isn't much, but I'm just saying how a safe distance still saves a lot of drag, especially when we know how aerodynamic our Jeeps are

I noticed a 1-1.5 mpg improvement when I switched to synthetic oil without any other changes.

If you turn the engine off as you are traveling on "down hill" grades, you can save gas too! HA

I'm averaging between 14-15 MPG around town. I know it is all the stop and go traffic in town that is killing my MPG. Not sure there is too much I can do to improve it. Driving very easy does improve it a bit, but I can't always drive easy. Sometimes I get an itch to enjoy my commute a little more.

Perhaps I'll try synthetic oil during my next oil change and see if that makes any difference.

Agree to this ^^

I always start in 2nd, first comes and go's way to quick with my 4.10's
I try to lightly accelerate to get up to speed but the Prius behind me is stuck to my ass, I find it just pisses people off behind me
In order to go anywhere I have to get the rpms up or they drop to low and I'm bucking through an intersection.

Driving this 3.8 is deff a form of art, the power is there, it just takes a bit more gas to get it. I can't just mosey around, I'm not
a speed demon either-just try to stay with the flow. 15-16 and 17 tops if I drive more highway.

Been itching to go synthetic since this engines likes higher rpms. I heard synthetics smooth things up a bit .

Force of aerodynamic drag increases with the square of velocity...
Power required to overcome said force increases with the cube of velocity...

Keep that in mind when you're out on the highway...and especially when you're out on the highway fighting a headwind. You'll pay for the extra 5-10 mph...

Good post, this was helpful. I have a nice long drive upstate PA to go camping tomorrow. And JUST noticed the OD on my automatic 08. Lol. So I should use that on the flat turnpike portion of my 3 plus hour ride?

Yes, I'm an idiot.

I thought i had a lot of hills living on the foothills of the Cherokees in east TN but after driving through West Virginia and the Pennsylvania roads today, it makes my area feel like flat lands

I agree with Mr. Sinister's observations.

OD button? I drive an automatic Wrangler, and don't remember seeing an OD button. Is that only on manual drives?

There should be an OD button above your shifter on the right. Little round button.
By all means use OD, even on the inclines. You may have to apply more throttle to get it to kick out of OD from time to time, but where there's incline, there's declines and you definitely want to let it shift into OD for those.

I agree wholeheartedly with all your comments, Mr. Sinister. I have also discovered that even short periods of idling other than at lights really effect overall mileage. Bank drivethroughs, waiting to pick up a passenger, finishing listening to a item on the radio, etc. can cost up to two mpgs per tank. Also check your real mileage with a calculator. The trip computer on my Rubicon has always overestimated by almost a mile per gallon. I also think that how fast you fill your big flat gas tank can be deceiving. I always do better if I fill it slowly to minimize air bubble traps. I drive in urban traffic quite a bit. Keep your tire pressure at factory recs. Winter especially. I get 17-21 (22-23 without air cond.) in the summer and 15.5-20 in the heart of winter. My Jeep also has auto and 3.73s.

I don't have the fancy gidgetry that tells me the mpg's. I do it the old fashioned way, with my phone calculator. I am getting 16 mpg driving about 35 miles a day round trip to work with 9-15 stops each direction and speed limit 15-45mph. I have auto, 3.73's, 33"x11.5" tires.

I have noticed that putting 5w30 decreased by 1-2 mpg over the recommended 5w20. I thought that since it's so hot here that a little thicker oil would help, but it's pointless since the 5w20 comes out fairly clean after 3500 miles. I drive 90% under 4000 RPM and 75% under 3000 RPM.

Good thread. If you know how to drive, the 3.8 is a perfectly good engine. Do I get passed by people in a Prius or a Corolla? Sure I do.

But I can keep up with traffic just fine and I didn't buy a Jeep for speed anyway. As of late, there are so many speed traps in my town - great revenue source for them. It's very likely I would have been nailed a few times had I been in a faster vehicle.

It's not always about speed. It's about your safety-accelerating up to speed, from a light or stop sign, or pulling out into traffic

I have to get the rpm's up just to get it to go especially pulling out into a busy road.
If I try to granny her, people come up on your ass end way to quick.

I don't baby mine by any means, just yesterday leaving work with A/C on and driver window down I beat a Civic with coffee can exhaust through the shotgun lane. Yeah, it was that slow. Of course I'm not pulling the 20+ mpg that some people manage. I never had an issue pulling on to roads or freeways yet, I just time it for when there aren't any cars coming up too fast or close to me. It's an unwritten rule here to drive 10 over the speed limit.... unless you see speed cameras.

I still can't understand this 20+ mpg's some people are getting. Even when my jeep was stock, the best I would ever get was around 17 or 18 when I was cruising the highways at a steady speed. Now I am lucky if I get 15 overall. Oh well. It's a Jeep. I don't even pay attention to the price when I fill up.

Yeah 20plus is impressive and not the norm. The new jesus engine makes this thread a moot point.

It's the colorful name some of us have given the Pentastar 3.6, due to the amount of hype it was getting around here.
But this thread isn't about the jesus engine, it's about making the most out of your 3.8, if you have one.

I just like giving you guys a hard time.

This all came about because I posted that I've gotten 18.6mpg with the 3.6 in its first 300 mile. Then Sinister posted how he gets that and then some with the 3.8 because of the way he knows how to drive.

I too know how to drive that way but its honestly not near as fun. I don't think anyone buys a jeep for good mpg though. But the 2012s are proving to be respectable in that category.

I was suprised by the 20mpg+ by the 3.8 because when I researched it I routinely got the answer of 15-16mpg in the city.

Went out to the dealer today for an inspection on my 2010 and while there...cruised the lot to see the almighty 12's. They had one. I opened the hood and the glowing light of it's awesomeness was so great I fell to the street weeping in joy.
