Just filled up.
154.4km used 40.85 litres and it cost $89.84. Was using it off road yesterday so a mixture of road and off road use. 33x12.5x15 tyres 4.0L engine 3 speed auto and 3.73 diff ratio.
I will let you clever dudes do the math and convert to MPG. I think your US gallon is 3.8 litres.
If you want to use it then go hard. Don't complain about the cost of gas, it's still the cheapest part of ownership. LOL.

What no comments on the cost of gas here in NZ? Or do all you guys feel sorry for the poor cousin down under having to pay the best part of a weeks wages just for a tank of gas? Small population has benefits though... heaps of places to go 4 wheelin. Beach just 40 mins away has about 80 km of sand to play on, local farmers still let us drive their farm tracks often at no charge. And it's all the most beautiful place in the whole world, scenery you would die for. Come down and see for yourself, we can even have all four seasons in one day.

Here in Whangarei (Northern most city of NZ) our pump price is currently $2.199 per litre or just under $2.20. How does that compare?

With a lift and bigger tires and stuff, will the trip odometer still read accurately?

ie Mine usually reads around 200 - 210 everytime I fill up completely. So last time at the pump I think I went like 201 miles on 13.6 gallons of gas, that would be 14.75 mpgs, which surprised me, that seems pretty high.

33's on 3.73s

32's, 98 tj, 2.5 liter, 4.11 gears, been averaging a little over 19 mpg. I drive a mix of city and highway. My motor was rebuilt by me 40,000 miles ago. Before rebuild, I was getting 16mpg. I also keep my tires inflated to max for street driving and deflate when off road

But that's close to stock rpm at that speed. I don't understand how the motor lugs with slightly taller tires but didn't with stock tires. I'm having a mental debate with myself about gearing changes. I know it's about mechanical advantage, but the motor will be turning faster, using more gas.

I'm about to fill up and figure my MPG on my new-to-me jeep with 33" (actually 31.5") mt/r's and 3.73s on a 4 speed auto. I'll post results.

6 in of total lift between the BL and SL, 4.88 gears, and 33 in. Tires and I'm pulling about 17 in the city and 14-14.5 on the highway (last road trip I took. But I was also doing about 75-80 the entire trip. So was over 3200 RPMs )

Oh, and I'm in a '97 5 spd

I was shocked at my mpg increase after my rebuild but it's real. I check mpg almost everytime I fill up. I am usually at around 280 miles to the tank with a quarter tank left or just a hair below. My tank holds 20 gallons. I couldn't be happier.. my suburban gets 9 miles a gallon and has been sitting in the driveway

That's awesome. I could probably increase my mileage a little w smaller tires but 24 is awesome

Wow you are getting 30%+ better mileage than what your Jeep was capable of coming from the factory and you are using larger tires. That my friend is amazing if true. Since you are running larger than factory tires, did you change the speedo gear? If not, your odometer isn't showing accurate miles therefore throwing off your calculations. If you have the correct speedo gear for your tire size, WOW!!!

97 tj, 3.5 inch lift on 33 inch duratracs. I'm getting only 12.5 to 13 mpg with mixed highway and local with a 6.0, 4L60 conversion. I've heard guys claim to get 20 mpg with this set up but I'm working with one of the top tuners in the country and he can't get me close to that. All of the tuners I talk to say 20 mpg is impossible in a jeep with that motor and I agree. Guys on other forums are getting 20 + mpg with LS motors but they are in camaros and vettes not a brick with wheels.

I didn't change anything..... I don't know why or how.
I used google maps to map all the journeys I did, and there's about a 4% discrepancy on the clock. The only thing I see under the hood is a "white lightening" thingamabob.... it's spliced to the coolant temp sensor wires.
I removed it, but it threw up high voltage in coolant circuit errors so I plugged it back in and left it. That was there when I bought it.
The only thing I've done since is change the serviceable parts, plugs, leads, filters, oil, fluids etc.
Don't get me wrong it's not that high 100% of the time, but even my lower calculations seem to be higher than they should be.
TBH, I'm not sure what I think. The clock says 263000kms, but an old bird hollered me in the superstore car park claiming it was her old jeep. She said when she got it there was no motor in it. I mean it looks stock, and drives just the same as the others I've driven... I'm not complaining, but I certainly dont claim to know what or why.
