If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

Don't have a 4 banger, got the 4.0 and I get about 18 on a good day. I just blame it on the fact that I have the aerodynamics of a box on wheels.

Mpg

Have an '00 with a 2.5L, Rock-It air tube and filter, 5 speed, and 30" tires. With midgrade gas I get 20-22 all the time and 23-26 on the highway.

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.

Oh no I'm not complaining at all, I was just making sure it was in the right ballpark.
