|TOKKIE||Since no one has asked. How many gallons did it take to fill the second time(after driving the 150 miles)?|
|02-22-2012 05:46 PM|
I get about 150-160 miles on a full tank of gas. I am running 33's with 4.10 gears, 3sp auto.
The mileage do sux on it.

|KrazyItch||Might not help your situation, but im on 31x10.50s with a 3" lift on my LJ (LJ is unlimited correct?). Its not a 4 banger, but the 6 and i get around 13mpg to 16mpg depending on my driving habits... Normally highway im anywhere between 70 to 80mph at around 3k to 3.5k|

Of course, you can also do what I did. I found a management job 1.6 miles from the house. I working on biking to work, but it's always more fun to take the Jeep.

2 more things to check...
1. make sure your brakes are not dragging. In nuetral, you should be able to push it on level ground with hardly any effort. If there is any drag, get your brakes done.
2. make sure you have a new clean air filter. I saw one packed with leaves once and it really dogged the gas mileage, let alone it would'nt go over 50mph until the leaves were cleaned out of there.

To the OP, drive it a bit more and see what happens to the MPG. You may have been driving it a little extra energetically due to it being new. If the MPG still stays really bad, it may mean you need a new 02 sensor or maybe just a tuneup.

He has a 4cyl. They come stock with 4.10s, youre probably thinking of the 4.0

So to the OP...do some searching on here about tire pressure...lots of theorys and also do a search on the crayon/chalk test to determine the psi for your tires.

|SirGeorgeKillian||Where is the max pressure? If you are looking at the sidewall, that isnt where you need to be looking. That is the max tested pressure. You are going to wear your tires down quickly that way, and get a rough ride. Any tire pressure related savings you gain will be lost when. You wear out a set of tires 20k miles prematurely.|

|SirGeorgeKillian||What is your actual mileage? Confirm your spedo is right with a GPS, most of them out now are actually more accurate than the spedo.....|
|02-22-2012 12:14 PM|
|Redsand||Wow, that's a lot of air pressure|

My gauge hits empty around 220 miles, and I would buy 15 gallons or so. Never gave it much thought, until I got a build sheet and hey would ya look at that, its a 19 gallon tank.
The gauges aren't accurate, so check to see what you really have.
|02-22-2012 12:02 PM|
|Redsand||jeep gas gauges are not exactly always right, and when the light comes on you still have a few gallons left. jeeps just dont get very good mileage anyway|
|02-22-2012 12:02 PM|
|guncrazy72||Not sure about gear size for the 30s but for 33s the most popular is 4.10s if you have a auto and 4.56 gears if you have a manual. Your RPMs should drop some but not to much with a gear change. You might want to try and do a tune up on you Jeep. Air filter, fluff ect....|

Horrible Gad Mileage
Hey there everybody, I just got my jeep about a week ago, and I bought my first full tank of gas for it a couple days ago, it took about 12 gallons. Then I reset my trip odometer, and I only got about 150 miles out of the tank before I had to fill up again. It is a 4 cylinder and I do a lot of highway driving and my car runs about 3000 rpm at 65 mph, it has a 1" lift and 30 inch tires, so nothing too dramatic, would rehearing help this problem? If so, what should I gear to?
Thanks in advance!
