I drive a 4.0 liter 98 TJ with 33x12.5 tires and 4.10 differential.
MY GAS MILEAGE SUCKS, obviously I did not get a jeep for gas mileage, I was just wondering what kind of $$$ other members put in at the pump. I live in Kansas and put in $45 the other day just to fill er up. It may not sound so bad but filling up once or twice a week can get pretty costly.
Yup. its getting pricey, and it's only going to get worse.
I drive ~25miles to work every day....I've cut back on my "jeep days". I guess I'm lucky to have options. my other 2 cars get twice the mileage of the Jeep. It just sucks because it seems all 3 vehicles run out of fuel at the same time.
I need another Jeep...I'm lurking here, waiting for a great deal.
Yea I fill up at about $40 to $45ish also. If I drive that all week to work I fill it twice a week. And I drive 80 miles round trip to work and back. It's about the same as when I drive my F250 Powerstroke all week it costs me $75 in diesel. Mrcarcrazy I know what you mean about them always need filling up at the same time even when you switch vehicles every now and then...
Another question about gas - My 98 Sahara claims to have a 19 gallon fuel tank? The most I have ever put in it was 15.5 gallons, and the needle was well below the Empty mark... How much gas is everyone else putting in when on Empty?
I get more smiles to the gallon than any other car I have owned.
03 Sport. ~$45 to fill up when the idiot light comes on with about 14.5 gal. Only once did i go far below it. The light came on when I turned her on to go to work and thought I would fill her up on the way home. Ended up forgetting to bring my wallet and was scared I would run out the entire way home. Took just under 19 gallons to fill up the next morning.

right now, im running stock everything... and put out about $60 a week, driving to and from school, to and from work, and some round town stuff. I am getting a lift and 33's and I look forward to the increase in gas trips! : (
But you are in a Jeep, if you didnt want to spend $ on gas, repairs, mods, etc. you shouldve went with a prius...

Well lucky for me I live in a college town where everything is a 2 min drive and work is only 5 min......I spend about 35 every other week.

Mine is an 01 with a 2.5 and a auto trans, I pay between 2.75 and 2.85 depends on who's pocket is empty at that time of day, until memorial day when the fat cats here will make us pay between 2.95 and 3.25 a gal to help line more pockets, so I can't tell ya how much it is each time but last time from "your walking soon" light to full was $42
I am finally on board with obama's hope and change thing. I now HOPE that when its all over I have at least a little CHANGE left.
Let's see. I have an 06 Unlimited (pretty much stock) I-6, 4.0, Auto.
I filled her up today I was down to about a 1/4 tank. I pumped 14.454 Gallons @$3.1999 totalling 46.24. My mileage for that amount of gas was 184.4 meaning that I am getting 12.7577 miles per gallon.
