That's gonna vary.... depends on your tire size and how you drive.
I have a '93, 5-spd, 31" tires and I get around 20-22 mpg, mostly driving around town ... if I keep my foot out of it.
Normally you can expect (without any mods) anywhere from 16-24 mpgs, but Jeeps aren't known for their economy.

I do need to replace a few of my fuel lines and rebuild my carb.

1992 2.5L, manual transmission, 31" tires inflated to 45 psi, full tune up, 2.5" lift, top off, doors off, light footed, coast up to stop signs, shift at 3000 rpm, cruise at 2000-2300 = 21 MPG. I'm very satisfied with any time I get over 20
