If you want to get good Mileage, the most important thing is to take care of your Jeep
- When i bought it, i had an average on 23.5 Liters/100km (approximately 10 MPG) on the first week
- Then i changed the oil, the oil filter, cleaned my air filter, checked my tires, and changed my spark plugs, now i get 15 Liters/100km (appoximately 15 MPG)

Considering the fact that i live in Beirut (lot of stop-and-go driving, 90% city driving, all the roads are down hill or up hill), it's a very good mileage. You just have to do the regular maintenance

i was getting 17.5 - 18.5 with my 4.0/5 speed/31's, but got up to around 19.5 after changing the crank position sensor. the engine runs noticeably smoother now too.

I dunno if im the only one who does this but cruising around town i put it in 5th for any speed higher then 30 mph. i think this is a reason i don't use to much gas.

I get a bit over 21 on the highway too, but the in-town mpg for my '97 four banger is usually around 19-20 (my mileage is generally all highway or all in-town). I like to stay in a higher gear whenever possible too, but it's sometimes hard to do with all the hills and frequent stoplights around...

I, eventaually, managed to calculate the gas mileage (after finishing the tune-up of my Jeep). So, aftre new oil, new filters, new plugs, etc, my mileage is around 13 in the city and 19-19.5 on the highway. Stock 2000 4.0 manual, dana 35 rear with 3.07 gearing, 235/75R16 tires.

It is ironic that most of the gas that is wasted is just from idling and waiting.
My GPS logs the amount of time when moving and stationary.

I squeeze 17 mpg out of my automatic '98 4 banger on average. I probably could get 20 on the highway, but I haven't measured that yet. Just about 220 miles from full.

2002 Jeep Milage

Stock 2002 Apex edition with 4.0 and 5 speed
I get 420 Km's on a tank - When gas light goes on.
That equates to 261 miles to a tank.
That is shifting at the shift points in the city and not heavy acceleration.
I would think that is about 20 mpg in the city

Not true.. It can get expensive.. I get new tires every 3k miles.. thats 300plus dollars. gas is premium.. I get about 30mig from the way I ride..

Plus its gonna cost a ton of money after a deer jumped infront of me last week.. I would have gladly hit the deer with my jeep though..

Im sure harley's have their expensive maintanance.. just to keep it from stalling at every light. and chrome polish are expensive... ..kidding.. A harley rider actually helped me haul my Jap. bike home from the hills.

I get about 16 on my jeep with 32''s and 3.73 gearing on freeways.. and 14 mixed daily driving... It would never get better than that no matter how I drive. or maintain it.. I learned to accept it for what it is; like an ugly step-sister..

3k miles on your rear tire? you need to ease up at take off..LOL on the pilot power I do about 5 to 7k for the rear. I use the bike every day to go to work (well almost, now that I have the jeep )
but you are correct, tire are expensive, the rest it's ok, as long as you do your own service.

How many of you folks are calculating your mileage with your factory set speedometer/odometer and larger tires? For many this is common sense...but some folks tend to overlook that.

I'm not sure how my Jeep does, but now that I've gotten the speedometer calibrated for the tires that came on it...I'll be paying attention to it to see how it compares to my old truck.

Do you have stock tires/gears? And how many gallons are you pumping at the 140 mile mark?

Always verify your speedo/odo with GPS when you change tire/gear size even when you change the speedo gear to the "right one".

And, most of us can ignore the gas gauge. On it's best day, it's not very accurate and most of them aren't even close after a couple years.

I'm at 1/2 tank when I have 120 miles and the light comes on at about 180. I can go 275 or so before I run out. When I fill up when the light comes on, I pump about 15-16 gallons into my 19 gallon tank.
