mileage with soft vs hardtop
 
Maybe a dumb question, maybe not. Does anyone know if I would get better mpg with a hardtop on my YJ, or would I get better mpg with a soft top. The soft top has more drag because of the angled top, but its lighter as apposed to a hard top. Lmk what you think.


Light, but not aerodynamic vs. sleek, but heavier.

I dont think it's going to make much of a difference.

^^^^ x2 It's a big square block with 4 wheels. I think it's six one way, half a dozen the other.

aha fair enough, I guess it is a bit of a box on wheels.. :P every bit counts with mpg though ;)
