CA to Texas Roadtrip

I was very impressed with how the JK handled the drive to Texas. I averaged 18.4 mpg at 80-90mph. I didn't know the jeep can go 90mph. Also drove to Louisiana to visit the inlaws and took it mudding for the very first time finally got the jeep dirty. $25 car wash later is still not clean urgh. I don't like my jeep dirty a few more times at the car wash next week :-)

That's great fuel economy at that speed! Did you also calculate it manually?

Are those 33s?

What gears do you have?

Yes I calculated it manually, even kept all my receipt and did my calculation at the rest stop lol. I have 35" and 4.10 gears.

Yo that's a great mpg! I get that too on road trips as long as I don't pass 70mph and with the wind.
