My 1999 Sahara Wrangler in on Al Gore's top offenders list. It has a 4" Lift and 33" tires and seems to get around 14 mpg on the highway. How much damage are the rest of you doing? Lets hear it!

97se 4 banger 4.10 gears turning 31X10.50s im getting 20-21 round town.

Remember when you change tire size your odometer is off just like your speedo take that into account when you figure your mileage. You might not ne doing as bad as you think.

4.88s, 33s, 42RLE. I can get anywhere from 12mpg to 19mpg average, depends entirely how I drive. On the highway, if I can keep it between 55-60mph, drive like an old fart, with no headwind, it'll get a solid 19mpg. Around town is more like 14mpg.

Al Gore is on my top offenders list.
He puts out too much hot air.

I wouldn't think about mpg's to much. I did when I bought my house, now I am depressed and miserable. I was asked what I wanted for my 51st birthday, and my reply was a magic wand so I can get my Jeep back. I would gladly give up my 35 mpg Focus for my 14 mpg Jeep. Just needed to vent today, thanks.

80 mph to Moab a few weeks ago I got 18.6 mpg. Usually I am just under 17 in town or on the highway, but I live in the mountains.

It's all in the tire size and gearing.
