98 2.5l engine, manual transmission. MPG has been between 15.6 and 19.7. The speedo seems to match up with gps speed readings. Tires are 235/75/15 with psi up around 40 for hiway/town driving.

2001, 4.0L, 31x10.5 (summer tires), stock suspension, drive between 270 and 300 miles on a tank pretty solid, typically right around 19-20mpg. I put studded snow (stock size) tires on in the winter and don't really notice a difference, maybe 1-2 mpg depending on how much 4WD I need to use. I would park it and get a honda if I got around 14-15mpg.

I do drive like a grampa in it though, she is getting along in miles at 150k.

06 Rubi, 35's, 5.13 gears, auto tranny, heavy bumper & skids, my fat azz and a light bar that drags in the wind. Tru Speed to recalibrate, and it's dead nuts on with my GPS.

10.5 MPG is the norm.
With a tailwind on the highway and the cruise set at 65 sometimes I can get as much as 11.5 but it's rare.

To figure what your mileage is first you have to know your speedometer & odometer are accurate.
Zero out your trip meter at the gas pump and fill it up and then run the gas out of it.
When you fill up again you divide the number of miles on your trip meter by how many gallons you have used.

Otherwise, it's just a guess.

If you use a gps, it will give you correct mileage and mph no matter what the tire size.

Ok, there has got to be something wrong here.

I have 31's on 16" rims original Rubicon gearing - 4"lift - 5 speed 4.0 and I have a 15 gal tank. Drive easy - around town and can only get 11MPG. It sucks

2000 Sport - 4.0/Auto with 31" tires. 14-16 no matter how I drive.
I used 87 octane and "hypermile" as much as possible.

This is by far the most accurate statement of all. We all know this is no ecomomy car.

As painful as it was, that was why I traded my TJ (which of course I regret, but that is in another thread). My TJ was stock, with the exception of rims and a little bigger tire, and I was averaging 14 MPG or about 200 miles per tank.

18mpg or about 270 miles per fill. I have a 19 gal & my light always goes off when 4 or left. I figure they give Jeep drivers an idiot light with 4 gallons left because you could quite possibly be nowhere close to a gas station.

I still haven't quite mastered filling my tank without spilling gas when full

AMEN!
As long as I can afford to feed it, I will. If the time comes that I can't afford to run it as a daily driver then I will buy what my OBM calls a sh!tbox (japanese economy car) and just use the Jeep as a weekend toy.

In the meantime, it's a full time pleasure vehicle and the extra cost is worth the joy I get from driving it, even when it's just a quick jog in to town to get a gallon of milk.

Around town and back and forth to work I get around 14 - 16. On the open highway it improves by only about 2 or 3 miles per gallon!

Just put some carb cleaner in with the recent fill up and will see if there is any improvement afterwards!
