I have an '01 TJ SE, 4.10's, 31" tires, and drove to Spartanburg, SC from Summerville, SC. Trip was 169 miles one way. Needle stopped a little above a quarter tank. I refilled it with 11 gallons. With this I went apprx 15.3 miles per gallon. This drive included hills and a total elevation change of about 1000 feet up hill. Coming back, I made it home showing half a tank so mileage was a lot better, I didn't fill up to check. For highway miles, not real good. But I didn't buy it to save money on gas either.

On my Toyota Sequoia Limited, about 16 mpg, both city & highway combined.

On my Jeep, about 17.5 (although I just put 33's on, we'll see).

On my '88 F250, 9 mpg. Didn't matter if it was loaded with dirt, pulling a house trailer, or empty, it got 9 mpg.

On my '94 Buick LeSabre, we got about 19 city and 29 highway.

My '72 Mustang got about 13 mpg.

The '77 Dodge 21' motorhome got 7 mpg on it's 318 ci. motor.

02 TJ, 4.0L, 5spd, 3.73 gears, 33x12.50s, hard top and doors on, 50 miles a day round trip interstate cruising, i've averaged 11.7 mpg (i wish i was joking) for the last 3 tanks (and i'm sure beyond that, but i only started monitoring it 3 tanks ago). i'm basically getting right at or less than 200 miles per tank of gas. i fill up every 3.5-4 days.

It can, especially if you have a clogged air filter too, on the older jeeps (where you can access the plugs) I would gap and inspect them ~ every 12000. My .02. On another note 5 speed, 4.0, 4" lift, 4.10's, a lot of armor, my average is 14-15 but up to 18 MI/GAL.

I have to down shift at times if the hill is too long or steep......otherwise it's ok. I'll be getting different gears when Frank puts the 44 in the rear.
