Rubicondon53 At the very best I get 18.5 Mpg using non ethanol. That's country roads at 55 mph . Up on the interstate it drops to 15 or 16.. The more wind resistance at higher speeds the mpgs drop off quickly. Our safari racks cut mpg by about 1 mpg.. . Loaded with camping gear and off road trailer 13/14 mpg.... If I am stuck using ethanol blended fuel it drops 15 to 20% .. One actually saves money spending the extra 30 cents per gallon more for non- E gasoline...

I'm having a hard time comprehending that you get 320miles in one tank. I get 200 miles on one tank and I'm running 3.7 gears on 33s and that is just normal driving.

Thats what the ad has it listed as, just shopping around right now. Original idea was to buy a used jeep and use it as a weekend toy, playing with the idea of getting a decent rubicon and just buying a beater DD for the week

NFGZ Awesome thanks for the input guys. I'm considering it, we'll see if its still available when my house closes here soon. If so I may pick it up and get a daily driver beater.

I have an 05 Rubi with that exact setup, I get 12.5 - 14 mpg. Low end is city, high end is h-way.
Although, I do need a tuneup.

Lowrollin12 yea good luck on 15 MPG. I get that when driving downhill...
05-21-2013 03:47 PM
Dextreme I wouldn't expect anything better than 15mpg.
05-21-2013 03:45 PM
UpTheCreek I am going to guess 13-14 mpg...........on a good day.
