scramblin'wrangler Well my tranny says jasper right on it... im pretty sure it does at least. lol That mat be a factor as well? This jeep is new to me..... about a month in with it. And the motor is newly rebuilt from some guy in florida... previous owner told me but I forget.

Dons_Jeep Trevor - I am currently running stock 30's. I was getting even better gas mileage, but when I changed out my trans for a new Jasper trans it dropped down a couple mpg's.

drivebytruckerz My 2000 TJ 4.0 gets 15-16 no matter how/where I drive in 2wd. The most you can do is tune up, buy good gas and keep the oil changed. I also coast into red lights and try not to stop too much.

Not a brick.. a brick wall.

Fweaky The biggest factors outside of the fact Jeeps have the aerodynamics of a brick is usually gearing, tire size and lift. As you add each it drops. If you can gain tire size without lifting it you can do better but that usually means fender trimming. I have owned several CJs and YJs that were carbureted with 4" lift and 33 inch tires an I averaged around 15 mpg in town in each of them.

Anthony I was getting the same.... my problem was the rubber hoses on the fuel filter dry rotted. if you smel fuel try them....

uplifted When i was running the I6 the best i ever got was about 12-13 MPG.. Thats was with 33's and 4.56's...... Flat surfaces suck for wind resistance.

What size tires do you have?

Vaultzz by the looks of your lift in your avatar thats not normal. I have an 89 I6 with a 4" suspension lift, 3" body lift and 33" tires and I get ~16mpg around town. (and thats with a carb thats leaking gas )

I just saw that its an automatic, is it the 3 speed?

InfernoGirl Not sure about YJ's but I know TJ's mpgs get crappy when the O2 sensors are blocked, or they need a tune up.... Might look into that. Has it always been that low, or is it a new occurrence?
08-28-2010 08:40 AM
kik With my 89 4.2 5 spd. I avg. 20 hwy and 16 city. Maybe it's time for a tune-up.
08-28-2010 08:35 AM
scramblin'wrangler O I hear ya! I love the jeep! Its just everybody around here (my area) whos had one said thats really low. I mean think of it...... 4.2 with just rear wheel drive and its getting 10 mpg? My GF has a grand cherokee with a 6 cyl and its getting 20...... I know mine doesnt weigh that much different and FI cant make that much of a difference.
And I didnt even think of the cable being different! I've only got 31's so would that make that big of a difference?

Oh yeah..... brick with wheels.

88YJPostal It's correct I have a Carbed 4.2 and get that and I deliver mail in it. So there is always stopping and going in mine and it dosen't matter it's around 10 -12 mpg. We don't drive Jeeps for the MPG we drive jeeps for the look and abilities they have.
08-28-2010 12:15 AM
ESP x2 could be your ECM needs some adjusting.
08-28-2010 12:10 AM
InfernoGirl What size tires? and has the speedo gear been changed to reflect the tire size? If not you are getting a false reading with oversized tires.
08-27-2010 11:46 PM
ESP I want to help but I can't stop laughing from the first response.

Mine gets about the same. And maybe 15 mpg on the freeway. Well driving from Seattle to Idaho I got 15.
