yea speedo is correct and the drop has only been from summer to winter

Kilroy Check to see if you pumped fues with methanol. that will reducee mileage, too.

Are you taking into consideration the added fuel used to warm it up. It doesn't register on your mileage. I have a major drop in MPGs in the winter.

03 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon gas milage drop

I recently have noticed a drop in my gas milage on my jeep from 260 to about 240ish some times less per tank......i run a 4 inch short arm lift and 33 inch tires its a daily driver and just wonder if any one would have suggestions on where to start trouble shooting this or if its just something that happens over time.

Thanks,

Thelightguy
