yup sounds about right...thats about what im getting in mine right now...and yes its normal...i've heard that if u dont use A/C your mileage is a little better but as u can see its just a small difference so in my opinion, you my as well use A/C...and that might not have been the reason anyway...could've been something simple like using a lil more gas the second time....i'm not sure if A/C really affects mpg though
yep thats normal, but running ac does affect mpg for me, like 1 to 2 mpg difference, and i get a little over 20 mpg on the highway with the cruse set at 60. but if your rubi is new then the mileage will improve as it breaks in (which i assume u knew) mines got 128 k plus so its "well broke in"
Mine gets about 17-18 and it is usually a mix of highway and traffic driving (60/40%). I have oversized tires and run the A/C. I think a big thing is to not try and go 75 mph on the freeway. Go 65 or less and it'll use a lot less gas cruising along...
Make sure your air filter is clean, tires are inflated correctly, and I throw in a bottle of that concentrated fuel system cleaner with each oil change (not sure if that really does anything but it's not expensive)...
Everyone I know that has purchased a new Jeep with a 4.0, either a manual or an automatic, has complained about the initial mpg - including me. Those I know stated they saw an increase in mpg around 11,000-12,000. I can verify that's been true for me. I've now got 22,000+ on my 4.0 with automatic and I'm getting 18 consistently in the city and 20-21 on highway speeds at 68-70 mph. I pull a 2,000 pound trailer and still get 16-17.

I've never checked my tj's mileage , but i keep track of my '05 Ram 3500 w / Cummins , it's kinda sick , it gets avg 19mpg . It does better than most Jeeps and it weighs twice as much . I wonder what the new Jeep will be like with the diesel . Sorry , back to the thread , how many miles do you go on an average tank ?
Thanks ........................................ 409
