Dang I wish I got that. I'm not sure what gears the PO had in mine and I don't know how to figure that out. I also had a stupid power control module messing it up as well. I just took it out last week and got rid of it and now I'm getting180 per tank vs like 140. And I thought TJs tanks were only 15 gallons?

They had the option for 15 or 19 gallon tanks in the early models I believe

When you have a 20 oz coke in the front cup holder and smash your fingers into the cap trying to shift into second. Happens to me almost once a week. Would think I'd have learned by now.

When this weather forecast gets you really sad because you finally took the top and doors off for the first time this year... And then you debate not putting them back on because you know it has to warm back up eventually.

15gal was standard in 97-98 with 19gal being an option
in the 99 model year the 19 gal became standard...

I have a 19 gal and rarely put more than 12gal in when I fill up.... I fill up about 1/4 tank.

Your gauge is probably off I know mine is. When it gets close to E I have 1/4 tank left...it's not accurate but it's better than nothing at all .

I never want to do that, with the light on I can have anywhere from 1-25 miles left and I don't wanna risk the 1 mile which is most likely lol

Once drove 45 miles on a mountain road after my gas light came on and it still prolly had a couple gallons left in it as it only took 13 gallons to fill up.
