DaisyCutter 260 miles, 12.8 gallons to fill up this morning. I averaged just over 20 mpg. That included 20 miles in a sand wash. The 4-banger has it's perks.

MrHix 98 Tj 2.5 on 33's muds. 14mpg's if its not to windy.

crisjacof Here is what I get, hwy right at 60mph 17~19mpg, shifting easy right at 2000 rpm. If I shift above 2000rpm the mileage drops like crazy. City goes down to 15~17mpg. If I tow something (usually a dirt bike) gets 13~15mpg.
06 4.0L with six speed and 31's.

coolbreeze I quit checking the mileage some time ago, but anything over 12 is good
03-21-2012 10:31 AM
mraybrake '06 X 6 speed. Usually get between 16 and 18, but just got 20 on the highway heading down to NC this past weekend. Everything's stock except for my 31" Fierce Attitude M/T tires and Granite Alloy Wheels.
What colors yours? Mines silver. Don't ya know silver ones get the best mileage
03-21-2012 10:22 AM
Xjman1 My 01 with a 3speed averages about 14. We did an overall trip average of 18 on our recent trip to Co. I think I could have done better if not for those spirited runs.

hoopdogg 10-11 on mud tires, same size. is there anything i can do to improve it a little? I bought it used, and love it, but am wondering why everyone else is getting better...?
03-21-2012 01:33 AM
