Only question is if the 35s will fit once I trim the rear for TJ flares with a 4" RC lift or will I need more than that to clear the 35s with full flex.

|reno92||Driving easy with stock tires you should see18 mpg|

|littleshroom||I'm thinking about purchasing a 95 YJ, manual, 4 cylinder. It currently has a 6" lift (and gets 12-14 mpg), but I want to return the jeep to it's regular driving height and use regular tires. What kind of mileage can I expect? Most people posting either seem to have an automatic transmission, or have lifted theirs, so I'm a little bit lost. Thanks.|

|tigerblood||also keep in mind that if you havent changed you speedometer gear(like I havent), youre actually getting more than the 130-140 miles you odometer is reading, and your speedometer reads about 7 MPH fast.|

Ive got the same drivetrain as you, and basically everything you said goes for me also, except I can run my gage down to empty before I fill up without problems. I dont have the 20 gal mod done, but according to my build sheet is came with the 20 gallon tank.

89 2.5 4.56's 33x12.5x15....
I scored 15mpg(178miles 11.9gallons) on my last tank making short trips(10 miles or less). My tank is stock 14.5gallons so in theory 210miles should be obtainable. Ill have to test that theory one day...

Im picking up an 89YJ with a 20 gal tank, a new chevy 350, 4" lift and 33" tires.
I don't know what gears it has.
what do you think the MPG will be? --- my guess, I will be surprised and it wont be as bad as I think.

|bigb996||244 is very good mind gets less with the same motor. I do need to rebuild the carb and regear though.|

|Billmummey||I happen to have mustang 5.0 injectors for sale|
|05-10-2013 12:31 PM|
Mustang injector mod? Is there a thread on this? What's the year, eng that the injectors are needed from?
|05-10-2013 12:04 PM|
I average 10-13mpg with my 4.0 auto with 33" running 4.10s
I get nervous around 130-140 miles even though my gauge shows 1/4-1/2 left. However the gauge doesn't start moving until after 80-90 miles but then drops quickly so I've got no clue if the PO did the 20 gal tank mod or if my fuel gauge is messed up lol
I've been tempted to run it until its empty and have an extra fuel can just to see how far I get.
|05-09-2013 11:35 PM|
94, 2.5L, 5 speed manual, 31" tires, 4.56 regeared, throttle body mod, mustang fuel injectors, electric fan, mean green alternator, flokooler water pump
One of my first mods was the 15 to 20 gallon mod. So I can put a smidge over 20 gallons in if I run it dry. I did not swap out sending unit so fuel guage stays pegged high for the first 5 gallons.
Mileage varies from 12-15 mpg in town with stop and go driving, 15-18 mpg driving on the highway at 65-75 mph, to a high of 23 mpg driving easy trails / backroads around 40 mph.
Speedometer is reasonably accurate compared to gps.
Aside from different driving conditions, I find that mileage is significantly impacted by the configuration of the top and weather conditions. I have a soft top, so I have no way to compare it to hard top. Worst mileage seems to be totally topless. Full top with doors and windows is better. Running sahara mode (soft top with side and rear windows removed) is best mileage configuration for me.
Of course, wind direction can help/hurt too. Drove from dallas to austin a few weeks ago into a 20 mph headwind. Aside from feeling like I was swimming upstream, it had a big impact on mileage... About 10 mpg that trip.

What he said^
From what I hear 91-95 YJ's all came with 20 gallon tanks but differant filler necks and sending units that only allowed some to use 15 gallons. I read you can fix this very easy and have a full 20 gallon tank, but the sending unit will show overfull and not begin to move till the extra 5 gallons are used. Read this

Actually if you want to get technical, they only offered 1 size of stock tank. Meaning the actual size of the fuel tank, outer dimensions, is the same. The gals that they hold would be either 15 or 20. The only difference between the 2 tanks is the length of the vent tube that goes down into the tank.
I have the 4.2L currently on 33's and get somewhere in the neighborhood of 180 for a 20 gal tank. But i guess i should say that i have an Offenhauser intake with a Holley 390 4bbl. And to make matters worse, I very rarely keep my foot off the skinny pedal. Love to hear that throaty roar coming from the snorkel when the Holley needs lots of air cause the skinny pedal is out by the radiator!...lol
|05-09-2013 06:28 PM|
|Billmummey||I wonder how many different size tanks they offered, I just put 18gal in to fill it up and when I ran out this morning I put 4 gal in and I've only gone 6 miles since I out the first 4 in it|
|05-09-2013 06:23 PM|
|sinbob||I have a 19 gal tank. I usually get about 220 to 240 miles per tank. Just depends on how I am handling the skinny pedal. 4.0, 6sp on BFG 35's with 4.88's|

|reno92||FYI if you have not changed your speedometer/odometer gear for those 33" tires you actually have somewhere between 270-280 miles + on that tank, not what you're showing on the odo. You should add at least 10% to your MPH and MPG's running those tires. This is assuming the speedo gear has not been changed.|

|wrangleryj90||I get 300-350 miles out of a tank with my 2.5l and 30's although I put 33's on for the trails they cost me to much to buy and hurt my gas mileage to much|
