In the rural area I live in, the cost of living is inflated and people dont make much. Jobs are not existent, we pay taxes for our medical so its not free(not everything is covered by OHIP in this province). The only medical service I could get for the last 20 years is at the emergency room. Not sure where your getting your facts but I believe you folks have it better.

I haven't worked out the disconnect if you need to exit and he's going cross country.

mrk130 If you're uncertain if you're speedo gear has been changed, get one that fits your current setup. I put mine in when I realized that the previous owner hadn't after he lifted it and put on 33s. This will help you get a more accurate idea of what you has mileage is. After I put mine in, I'm in the neighborhood of 300 miles per tank. It's good enough for me. That's about the same total mileage as my STI I had before the Jeep.
Frankly though, don't worry so much about it. Enjoy the Jeep. It gets crap has mileage but makes up for that in fun points. Don't be too upset with guys telling you to just sell it. The long time guys here get tired of answering the question. It's been asked repeatedly and answered repeatedly.

Not too much, just waiting for the weather to get better so I can finally take the hard top off and put on the soft for the first time. A side from that, just watching too much news on gov't scandals in our senate and mayor rob ford in Toronto about aledgedly smoking crack cocaine lol (the guy is total idiot). Everything else is pretty quiet at the moment

5000 worth of suspension from pro comp? Hmmm.. Not sure about that one.

200 miles to a tank is what I average.

Maybe someone will chime in with more knowledge on this.

I have the 19 but just stop when its low, a couple of gallons more each time you stop is not worth it. There is a gas station on every corner up here so who cares that much.

pi55edoff I got a stock 00' and I'm pumped to get 15!

Gunslinger26 I have a stock 2011 JK Unlimited. If I drive like an asshole I'm looking at 15mpg. If I drive like a respectable American citizen I'm looking at 19.3mpg. That was my very best

kshaws21 Yea dont worry with silly aftermarket air filters. Your stock filter is just as efficient as any you will find for the rpm range our Jeeps operate in.
06-01-2013 12:14 PM
Atthehop Before I would spend another nickle on anything I would find out what my MPG is exactly. But if guessing is good enough then replace everything ChaddG suggests because he know more than the rest of us.

n00g7 K&N air filters are garbage and will yield no mpgs. You can replace your plugs and clean your throttle body... that may yield better mileage if the plugs in there are on their way out. You can also run a fuel cleaner like chevron's techron concentrate through a tank.

Capt_Zoom Best I've gotten with my 33" 3"lift '99TJ is 21mpg average...but that was in duluth in the middle of sub zero winter. For some reason my TJ loved the cold weather. In summer and now in Baton rouge i get around 14-15mpg.
06-01-2013 10:00 AM
UFOtestpilot It's a perfectly fine place to discuss MPG. It usually gets weird when folks start talking miles per tank, fractions thereof, or making claims that are based on miscalculations or disinformation.

At least that's been my experience here.
06-01-2013 09:56 AM
ChaddG replace your fuel filter/ strainer, it's in tank.
replace your air filter with a K&N
make sure your tires are at 35 psi
replace your spark plugs
make sure your battery terminals are clean, I mean sparkling.
this should get you a few extra miles / gallon.
And yes, do a proper mpg calculation.
I did all this and gained some m/g even with all the doubters out there it is possible.
I have over 200 miles on my tank so far and it isn't even in the red zone, <I know> this isn't a proper calculation, but as of right now I haven't had a chance to do one since I replaced my fuel sending unit. I can tell you I have 65 more miles on this tank so far than what is usual for me and my driving 20cty 20hwy / day
p.m. me if you want any private advice or have any questions. This forum is not a good place to discuss miles per gallon.
