Poll: How many MPG's do you get?

I checked my MPG's for the last few fill ups and found that I'm getting 13.65 miles per gallon with my 1995 6 cyl. I changed my spark plugs today in hopes of bringing it up a bit. Kinda suprised though, cause I drive only about 5 miles a day and thats just put-putting around...nothing too aggressive. So what do you get?

Year:
Engine size:
Tire size:

17mpg stock 4.0 5 spd and P235/75R15 tires. That is with the speedometer adjusted for the tire size, and driving 65 to 75 mph climbing from 5300 ft to 7500ft everyday, driving 20 miles per trip.

Thats actually pretty hard on vehicles. Thing spends all its time below operating temperature.

Anyway,

Best I've gotten is 19 mpg (highway/interstate - few stops)
Worst is 11 (doing that 6 miles/day thing).

2006 LJ, 4.0, 30"

Just the thread I been needing.

So far, I have filled up just once in the 2007 Sahara. I know utilizing the gas warning light is not a good gauge for miles per gallon, so I am going to verify the miles travelled on Trip A vs what I travelled last tank by the time the gas warning light went on, just for consistency. Last time, I travelled a mere 199.6 miles. Lets see how far I get this go around.

Once the idiot light chimes and illuminates, I will see how close to 199.6 I am. Then, I will fill up and note the gallons pumped. Once I get that number, I will divide my new miles on Trip A by the gallons filled. Presto. That will be my approximate, and most likely, disappointing miles per gallon.

I get between 16 and 17 with my everyday drive a 50/50 mix of hwy and city driving. Its bone stock exept a 2 1/4" lift and 33" AT tires, K&N air filter and a FLOW MASTER. The gearing is stock and I dont use 5th much exept on the 4 lane. I cruise on the highway but drive like a crazed fool in town (heavy traffic makes me mean as a dog shittin tacks) gotta get through it. In the late spring and early fall i get about 18.3 mpg. Dont know why. 95 YJ

This poll should be about how many mpgs we don't get. I get about 13 to 14 on 33s in my 97 sahara with 4 inch lift. That's on a good day.

I have a 2005 TJ Rubicon with only 23000 miles on it (got it last month). I seem to be averaging about 15.5 mpg; that is with driving about 45 miles/day to work and a couple of weekends out in the soft sand down here in FL. Looking at a long trip to Arkansas over Thanksgiving; we'll see what kind of mileage I get then!

87 YJ 4.2L with 33's I get around 14mpg, but the mc carb runs a little rich. I was getting around 12mpg until I did the Ford TFI ignition.
