mileage

Anyone out there driving a 4cyl. with a 5 speed? If so, what kind of mileage are you getting? I was thinking of picking one up as a daily driver.

Does a 4 banger manual feel underpowered?

If you're thinking of buying one just because you love Jeeps then go for it. If you're thinking of buying one because gas prices are so high and you hope to save some money, forget about it. I'd be willing to wager that a 4 cyl Jeep with a 5 speed gets worse mileage than what you're driving now.

Mine is a 6 with a 5 speed so I can't help you on specific numbers but i think they're less than 20mph.

I would have to agree with SouthTJ.....if you are looking for a gas friendly daily driver....keep looking.....because reading others post's even the 4 bangers are going to be well under 20mpg......I cant help either though with exact numbers as I have a 6 auto, and I would be lucky if I hit 18mpg

I have an 03 - 6 cyl. - auto. Stock tires I averaged about 16.5.
Now with a 4" and 33's it's 14.5
As so many have said b-4 we don't buy Jeeps for fuel economy, but, try takin the top off and hittin the trails in your'e xx mpg grocery getter.
