Agreed - Jeeps are not for MPG's folks. These new Jeeps are all flash and plush anyway - I'll take my 71 CJ 304 over this plastic

I noticed the same thing. Non-ethanol gas gives better gas mileage for sure. I think they are just ripping us off more. I remember reading Henry Ford used ethanol gas back in the 20's. Hmmm wonder why they stopped using it? Been there done that and moved to something that lasted.
I just dont see how all these new cars with such light material and thin metal and we still only get 15-19 mpg's. Heck we had better built cars in the 80's (thicker metal) and still got that? Where is all this progress?

Don't run your radio, what a joke man.
You forgot to add light meals too than, also prune juice to cleanse yourself before driving.

$16 to top up the JK here, I guess I shouldn't worry too much about mpg.

Best way to treat MPG in your JK is like a red headed step child.....ignore it

I've heard that using 100% acetone with your gas can improve mpg, I haven't tried it myself, but has anybody done it?

Im pretty sure my Jeep is a gasoholic. Looking into rehab for it as we speak. For years it has been stealing money from me to support its gasoholic habits.

I have a 2014 JKU and I get up to 21.8 on the highway on long trips. DD is a mix of city/highway and I get 19+ on average. 54K+ miles on the odometer.

My wife had concerns about the poor mileage of our Jeep. I told her I would try to improve it.

I've added a Warn winch, front and rear bumpers, 2.5" lift and 35's and heavier duty rock sliders. So far it hasn't worked.

Maybe a set of off road lights might help?

The fun memories are on the weekends out on the trail. Or at the lake. Or at the whatever it is I go to do to have fun...not work.
That's why I (like Ben Stone) get off of the freeway, drop the soft top when weather allows, and spend an extra 15 minutes taking the curvy back roads home from work. I love having my JKU as my DD whether on or off the road.

Agree, for best mileage, slow down and enjoy the ride home.
