I filled it up, and went on a long trip with softtop, and full doors on. Average speed on hwy was 67, 70mph. And drove a little in city, around 235 miles light came on. Is this normal? I understand I am not driving an aerodynamic car, but isn't this mileage bad?????
Thanks in advance

01 4.0, 5spd. 31'' tire. 3.73 gears (IIRC) I usually get 16-18mpg combined city/hwy...I seem to actually get better than that in city only. (haven't gone a full tank w/o getting into the highway a few times, so I don't know that for sure)
I need another Jeep...I'm lurking here, waiting for a great deal.
I thought I was going crazy, I'm thinking of putting my Sport in AA. I went on a road trip last week and only got about 220 before my light came on. Of course here in MT we average 75-80 MPH and it requires 4th gear to be used waaaay too often. This last summer I spent most of my time at Flathead lake and drove to and from the bar/marina/glacier park all summer and averaged 18/19 mpg, no joke. I will prob never see that again. Of course there was a ton of -I've had one to many beers so I'll drive extra cautious on this deserted to laner moments.

8 mpg highway and never goes into 5th gear
city... I have no idea and I don't want to know

I don't think about my gas mileage any more. I know its low (13mpg) but there is not a whole lot I can do about it except keep the revs down. When I drive I just enjoy driving my Jeep. I have had it for over three years now and I still get a kick when driving...every day, everytime without fail.
The only thing I worry about is that time in the future when gas will be too expensive to own a Jeep.
Once you are perfect you can judge me.
