EmptyPockets 330miles to the tank. I have 3.55 gears.. don't know if thats stock or not. I did a test to see how far off my odometer was.. found out it is .2 miles off. I have some math to do to find out what my mileage is... 16.5mpg... was more but got a lift...

perkalator I get about 240 miles average per 20 gallon tank on 33 12.50 and 3:73 gears. Don't trust your odometer unless you have corrected for oversized tires.

Abomination93 Well I get between 15 to 17mpg x 20g tank = 300-340...but I dare not touch 250 w/o filling up...I hate running out of gas.

4.0l ax15 3.07 gears stock tires or 33x12.5x15.

My jeep is consistant for mileage, it is mostly highway driving I do.

Miles per Tank on 4.0L?

Just curious this. I see what people say for MPG's but most of them are 4 cylinders. What about the 6 cylinders. I know mine is not good on fuel being my gauge does not work, until I get this aftermarket one all wired up. Last time I ran out of fuel on the road I had like 180 miles to the tank that was full. I did some offroading and lots of idleing and testing but is that normal? With normal daily driving is that all im getting? Givin I know my tires are not helping ONE bit.

91 4.0L Auto (bummer but I may swap in an AX-15 soon)
