Subject: 2001 JEEP WRANGLER No Disappointments
The title of this thread comes from an add found on Craigslist on a 2001 Wrangler posted for sale. The following is my email reply to his add claiming the jeep gets 25-28mpg, along with his reply back.

ME: You’re positive this jeep gets 25-28 mpg?

Him: I have been buying Jeep Wranglers to fix up and resale. I am not a dealer just a retiree trying to makes some extra $$. I purchased this Jeep in Richardson, Texas. I drove from there to here and got 28 mpg highway. I have only drove this Jeep a little over 300 miles since I have had.

IS THIS POSSIBLE????:confused:

Hell no. Unless he drove right behind a 18 wheeler truck. Pushing a brick though the air kills MPG.

OH wait a MINUTE is Richardson texas to where the guy lives ALL down hill? Like a 6 % grade all the way??????????

Or did he forget that he filled up TWICE on that trip?

If any of you frequent Craigslist, find Tulsa, Oklahoma and search for jeep wrangler under the car/truck catergory. It's listed there, and quite amusing.

4 cylinder with a 3 speed... Unless that 4 cylinder just so happens to be a cummins 4bt there is way. Either he didn't do his math correctly or he saw that mileage onine somewhere and went with it... Or the add is a fake.

Steer way clear of that one.....25-28 MPG!!!...sure thing and I got some flying donkeys to sell that I found on my way back from Texas.

Wait. When did a 4cyl Wrangler get THOSE numbers? Did Jeep silently introduce a hybrid model? :p

Seriously, a 3 speed (which I dislike those trannies) is not a decent MPG tranny..3 speeds..and what, no O/D? Hmmm..

And the only Wrangler that I'm allowed to look at is automatic, in the YJ generation...

Well, I guess I'd make do..

28 mpg..mmff..hahahahah! LOL

I'm not in the market to buy a jeep, I have one....I just look on C-List every now and then to see what's for sale out there in my area. I couldn't resist replying to the ad when I saw such great MPG'S!!! LOL

B.S. Unless he has put higher gears, a high-efficiency engine, lowered, etc. All of which making the jeep...well not a jeep.
