Mine sure did when it was stock. In fact when I was driving down country roads at about 55 mph it would get more like 22. I know you've heard this before but it's a lot about how you drive; not accelerating just to have to immediately brake, tire pressure, oil changes, seafoam, air conditioning, air filter etc etc. I get about 18 mpg now though lol (4inch lift and 35s).

My window sticker on our 4 door Altitude reads
22 CITY / 30 HWY
Everytime I get in the Jeep and do the milage check, it's at a pretty constant 16 MPG.
They must rate them up here coasting down the Rocky Mountians in neutral, with the engine off and with a 50 mile per hour tail wind.
Fellow Canuck, keep in mind our gallon is bigger and the fuel computer yields U.S. MPG. you can add 20% to whatever its reading. I don't think it will yield 30 unless you follow the EPA test protocol in no wind conditions and 20 deg c. They also do it at like 40 mph.

Just finished a 5 hour highway run (2.5 hours one way) to my son's college in my 12 JKUR.
On the way out with the soft top up and keeping it between 70-75, I got 19.2 according to the optimistic onboard computer. On the way back with the top down at the same speeds, 18.3 (plus a pretty good sunburn on the top of my head), again according to the onboard computer.
I've got about 11K on it now, and low 19 is the best fuel economy I've ever seen in this thing.
I could probably hit 21 if I could find a 400 mile route that was all downhill.
Shortly after I bought mine I was getting 25+ mpg on flat highway in California one day and was giggling like a school girl. Then I noticed that the brush on the side of the road was bent all the way over in the direction I was going. There was about a 30 mph tailwind. It was fun while it lasted. I didn't buy a Jeep for the mileage. I find it's less stressful to not even pay attention to the numbers most of the time.
Yes. Evic reported 23.x on my round trip from Little Rock to Shreveport. I set the cruise control at about 5mph over the posted speed limit. I always use Cruise Control on trips to help with gas mileage.
Mine's a 2013 JKU Sport S with 3.21 and automatic. No mods to tires/wheels/lift yet.
I get 14 city and 16.5 hwy (75 mph). You can probably get the advertised mpg with a stripped down sport model but my 2013 MOAB is loaded with HEAVY options and 3.73 gearing. The sport drives like a car and my MOAB feels like a sport pulling a trailer.
I honestly can't believe how good the fuel economy of my 13' JKU Rubicon is...only filled it up twice the first time I averaged 20.8 with the calculator..the readout claimed 20.9....then I filled again today and averaged 19.8 calculated vs 20.0 on the readout. I figured it would be lower considering I got the Rubicon with 4.10 gears...guess it pays to live in the sticks where the roads are so bad you can't do much more than 55 anyway.
My 2012 JKU is still stock and on a highway trip from Richmond VA to philly i got 23 per my calculations but i was sticking to between 70-75. I can't tell you what i get around town though because a week after i got it, i was in an accident and i haven't driven it since but on the bright side, i should be getting it back this week
my 2012 manual rubi with a 2.5" lift and stock 33s, i get a whooping 14.5-15.5 around town and close to 17 on the highway if i do 75. If i creep up to 80-85 its back to 14-15. you guys with 20+ must be doing 55 behind big rigs...
I've spent nearly $200 in gas in the past 2 1/2 weeks. Granted the majority is spent in city traffic I'm still pissed I'm only averaging 15 mph.
Can anyone attest to any mileage gains from a cold-air intake and exhaust upgrade? Is it worth the $500+ in getting it done?
Customer in his Chevy Cruze company car gets 19mpg in Chicago city traffic. My JK in Chicago went through heavy city traffic last week and yielded 17+mpg with AC on. For that difference or even 15mpg I'll still take the Jeep over an Eco crap car like a Cruze getting 19 or even 21 in the same slop.

I have a '13 Sahara with Anti-Slip 3:73 rearend and I flirt with 21 but haven't reached it. The Jeep has only 4500 MI so I expect it to get better but right now I bounce around between 19 and 20.2 MPG. Oh and it's an Automatic. My driving is mostly flatland with winter in Florida (flat) and summer in Michigan (mostly flat) so all in all not too bad.

My previous 29mpg has improved. Jeep just come back from its 2nd service and runs a lot better. Its smoother and happier at 1500rpm. so really easy to drive economical.
On my 15 mile journey to work (using stop start) 33.4 mpg.
On the way home slightly more traffic and stop starts at traffic lights 30.4mpg.
you boys and girls definitely need a diesel.
I might buy one of the diesel tuning boxes that simply plugs into the diesel rail. Supposedly 10 or 15%more mpg or they will refund your cash.
