Wardj We don't do this for fuel mileage
07-10-2011 02:48 PM
jacked06tj i have an 06. 4.0 with 6 speed. 7.25" of lift, 35s, stock 3.73's. some exhaust mods. nothing else that really affects mileage. whether i have the ac on or i drive with a heavy foot, baby it, or drive on the highway it is usually all around 9 mpg. depending on where i get my gas it can be worse. when i get gas at wawa, it can go down by as much as 2 mpg, roughly 35 miles less a tank. expect to bleed out of your a** when you have to put fuel in it, im 20, so im constantly driving around with my buddies and such, i go through about 3 tanks of gas a week. i know, poor little jeep right? yea....
