Rubicon MPG question
 
What kind of gas mileage (i know, hard question to probably answer) could one expect from a 2006 rubicon, 4:10 gears, lifted (not sure on exact height, nothing too serious), 15in. Pro Comp wheels, 33x12.50 A/T Tires.

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

I am going to guess 13-14 mpg...........on a good day.

I wouldn't expect anything better than 15mpg.

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.:D

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'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.

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...

FWIW: 15.7mpg cruise control set between 70 and 80 for a whole tank.

I get 14mpg, but the check engine light is on (pcv and gas cap needs replaced). i just have 32" tires too.
