I never got below 20mpg w/ my old '71 CJ5 w/ the V6 Dauntless (4 spd),
and have gotten from 22-24mpg w/ my new (to me) '00 4.0 Sport (3.73 w/ 235/75-15 tires and 5 speed).
I DO drive very conservatively (think "Old Fart", and this is on rural 2 lanes w/ VERY little in-town driving.
That said I do not always get great mileage on everything-my last FJ-40 in primo shape never gave me better than 15mpg no matter WHAT I tried.
