I know, i said it MPG

I'm just curious, what's the gas mileage on a 2.5L with a 4in lift 33's and 4.56 gears?

What does yours get? I can't imagine anyone buys a jeep for gas mileage.

How many miles are on your engine?

Does it seem like it is getting really bag MPG?

Are you looking to compare MPG or find out how your engine is running?




Remember the more armor and accessories you run the worse the gas mileage.

My Jeep gets 30 smiles per gallon

Really gonna depend on the tire size, gearing, weight of the vehicle (plus all accessories and passengers), how you drive it, and in what type of terrain you drive it.

A heavy vehicle, with big tires and low numeric gearing, driven with a lead foot on hilly terrain, is going to get crap for fuel economy.

I did not buy m jeep for mpg, I have a major loss of power right now due to having 4.10 gears on a 2.5 with 33's and a 3in lift, so I'm having to compensate for that and getting terrible mpg. I plan on swapping the gears out soon for 4.56 and hoping that will let my engine be used properly and hopefully get somewhere between 15-20 is this thought valid or just way off? Ha thanks for your replys
