Gas mileage
 
Can anyone tell me what the typical mpg is for a 4 banger with slightly larger than stock tires is?

Adam013085 09-05-2006 01:45 AM

varies based on what tires u got and how it is geared.

jeeperman 09-05-2006 07:02 AM

Without more information like he said^^^^ it will be somewhere between 10 and 23 mpg.;)

coolman8bc 09-07-2006 10:26 AM

Well i'm feeling kinda lazy right now so I'll just accept that my 18mpg is normal. thanx

jeeperman 09-07-2006 11:17 AM

Actually sounds really good to me, I haven't had a Jeep yet that did better than 16...

your not complainin about 18 mpg are you? hopefully you were thinkin that it wasn't normal cause that is really good! 18 mpg isn't unusual...sounds pretty good!

Don't have a 4 banger, got the 4.0 and I get about 18 on a good day. I just blame it on the fact that I have the aerodynamics of a box on wheels.

Mpg
 
Have an '00 with a 2.5L, Rock-It air tube and filter, 5 speed, and 30" tires. With midgrade gas I get 20-22 all the time and 23-26 on the highway.

I never got below 20mpg w/ my old '71 CJ5 w/ the V6 Dauntless (4 spd),

and have gotten from 22-24mpg w/ my new (to me) '00 4.0 Sport (3.73 w/ 235/75-15 tires and 5 speed).

I DO drive very conservatively (think "Old Fart", and this is on rural 2 lanes w/ VERY little in-town driving.

That said I do not always get great mileage on everything-my last FJ-40 in primo shape never gave me better than 15mpg no matter WHAT I tried.

Oh no I'm not complaining at all, I was just making sure it was in the right ballpark. :)
