I plan on adding a modest lift next year, I am sure that won't help the mileage. Of course, I didn't buy it for the mileage, I bought it for the huge frikkin smile it puts on my face. Sometimes on my lunch break, I just sit in my Jeep and think about the things I want to do to it, and the places i want to take it.

Oh yeah, failed to mention it would only happen on a holiday at 3am when nobodies on the road.

MudRunner That sucks, but 16 mpg would be good for me. I am always idling in traffic and according to the car I am currently getting 13.4 mpg, up from around 11 when I first bought it......

There's an idea, hook up a tow strap to your front hook and to the back of one of the parade vehicles. Then just turn off the engine and enjoy the show.

NMRubicon All in all, still cheaper than driving the Dodge diesel, still almost $4/gal here, gas is at $2.999.

kjeeper10 Its because your driving one of these

ESP I hear ya when your stuck in traffic "parade". I've been known to drive through drainage ditches and down shoulders when in similar situations.
12-15-2011 07:18 PM
NMRubicon Damn sure would have been quicker, town needs some backstreets.
12-15-2011 07:16 PM
ESP 2mph? sorry to hear that, maybe just turn it off next time and push?

Worst tank yet (MPG) 2010 Rubi

Got caught behind a Christmas Parade 2 weekends ago, finally figured up the mileage on that tank, 16.2MPG, my worst tank yet since buying my Jeep in July, I had been averaging 19.4, but I guess 0-2MPH for 45 minutes really killed it. That is worse than my last wheeling trip where I got 16.7. Anxious to see how my first real rock crawling adventure affects it, I'm expecting high 11s to low 12s.
