I just went through 12 tanks of fuel over our 10 day vacation. 2 Adults and about 500 lbs of gear. 2011 JKU Rubicon with 35's and 2.5" lift. Off road with both lockers I got about 9 mpg (running 10 psi). Hwy I averaged about 15 mpg. I ran everything from 92 octane with 10% ethanol to 85 octane with no corn byproducts.
Once I got above 2700 rpm's she just sucked the fuel on the Hwy. Once I dump the 410's & 35's for 538's & 37's I suspect I won't want to keep track of the fuel mileage...lol
2013 JKU, auto, stock 17's, 3.73's. If I keep my foot out of it I can average 19.5 mixed city and freeway.

I am! With sahara tires... I have a rubicon w/ 4:10's and a 4:1 rocktrak and my first 700 miles I was getting advertised 20ish, but then It started dropping to 15ish. I chalked it up to winter gas but when summer rolled around, no increase. I rotated at 5000 miles, still no go. I then bough a set of sahara rims and tires, BAM! 20.9 average on a 900 mile trip. I also realized my rubicon tires were over inflated to 45 pounds from the factory.

pfft...you guys and your penstars...i have the crappy 3.8 and on the same trip as Matador, i got about 22 mpg and i have the 4 door...o and i have the crappy 3.21 gears and a 2" lift with 35's....maybe it was because i have the manual transmission...
My average over 10k miles is 20.7, that's pretty much 50/50 city highway. Straight highway I can do much better. On a recent trip to sleeping near dunes national lakeshore I averaged 24-26 over 900 miles. I have a 13 JKU manual 3.21 stock SRAs.
With the stock sra's I averaged 21mpg with 3.73 and now with 33"x12.5 I'm down to around 19

I got 1200 miles on it now and no matter where I'm driving I barely get 18mpg.
I've even reset the evic before getting on the highway, driving at 65mpg, I barely get 18mpg! Driving arounf town? still 18mpg! All 4 tires came in inflated at 39psi. I don't drive it hard at all either.
Seems like I should be doing at least a little better on the highway.
When I got my 13 JKUR. 3.73's auto. It got amazing 19 to 20 mpg on the freeway. Then I found the TPMS button and found my tires at 47 psi. I checked them and sure enough 47. I dropped the pressure to 35. Way better ride instant drop to 17 mpg.
Only 400 miles on my 2014 JKU Sahara with 3.21 and stock tires and got 21.5 on a 3 hour mostly highway trip to New Hampshire. Not bad for the first trip. Been cruising around town and still average about 19.
