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
