GAS - How much do you shell out?
 
I drive a 4.0 liter 98 TJ with 33x12.5 tires and 4.10 differential.
MY GAS MILEAGE SUCKS, obviously I did not get a jeep for gas mileage, I was just wondering what kind of $$$ other members put in at the pump. I live in Kansas and put in $45 the other day just to fill er up. It may not sound so bad but filling up once or twice a week can get pretty costly.

mrcarcrazy 05-04-2010 09:05 AM

Yup. its getting pricey, and it's only going to get worse.

I drive ~25miles to work every day....I've cut back on my "jeep days". I guess I'm lucky to have options. my other 2 cars get twice the mileage of the Jeep. It just sucks because it seems all 3 vehicles run out of fuel at the same time.

Vaultzz 05-04-2010 09:09 AM

Only $45?? :) I never let mine go down past a 1/4 tank but if I had to fill up the whole tank it'd cost $60 :p consider yourself lucky

mrcarcrazy 05-04-2010 09:12 AM

Damn how big is your tank?

I just refill once the idiot light comes on. and that's generally around 14.7 gallons. with at our current ~$3/gal prices your looking at ~45.00

Somehow you're able to put over 20 gals. in a 19 gal tank? :confused:

jdhallissey 05-04-2010 09:25 AM

yea way of life. Try filling up a tahoe and a f-150 both hold right around 26 gallons lol. Then my new to me diesel holds 50 gallons of fuel.

gmercer308 05-04-2010 03:23 PM

Yea I fill up at about $40 to $45ish also. If I drive that all week to work I fill it twice a week. And I drive 80 miles round trip to work and back. It's about the same as when I drive my F250 Powerstroke all week it costs me $75 in diesel. Mrcarcrazy I know what you mean about them always need filling up at the same time even when you switch vehicles every now and then...

AbbyK9 05-04-2010 03:46 PM

It was $3.01/gallon on base this morning, $3.09/gallon in town.
I tend to fill it up when I get to 1/4 tank, and it was $36 (I think) last time I filled it.

I drive 30+ miles one way each day, so just over 60 miles a day. Yeah...sucks for the gas mileage, but I don't have a Jeep for good gas mileage.

sevenservices 05-04-2010 03:51 PM

I kind of have a break as its only 7 miles to work... but, I was driving 82 miles each way for quite a few years...

Filled up today for $46.00 at $2.99 per gallon

My Chevy van has a 33 gallon tank, takes $100.00 to fill 'er up

jeep41 05-04-2010 04:06 PM

I feel your pain, I filled up today for $42, and my ram cost way more $$$$ with that 38 gallon tank in it.

IROCthe4.0L 05-04-2010 07:17 PM

Im around 40 to fill it like everyone else. My camaro on the other hand is quite pricey, around 55 bucks. All because it needs 93 due to 10.8:1 compression

jeepboro 05-04-2010 08:31 PM

Another question about gas - My 98 Sahara claims to have a 19 gallon fuel tank? The most I have ever put in it was 15.5 gallons, and the needle was well below the Empty mark... How much gas is everyone else putting in when on Empty?

muddigger94 05-04-2010 08:36 PM

cost me about $55-60 and itll get me about 220-230 miles

You haven't driven enough cars if that's the case :p

emills 05-05-2010 09:23 AM

Just filled the tank - $21. And that will last me for around 400 miles. :D

While I love driving the Jeep way more than the commuter car - it is nice to cut back on gas that much!

TheTJRod 05-05-2010 09:26 AM

I get more smiles to the gallon than any other car I have owned.

03 Sport. ~$45 to fill up when the idiot light comes on with about 14.5 gal. Only once did i go far below it. The light came on when I turned her on to go to work and thought I would fill her up on the way home. Ended up forgetting to bring my wallet and was scared I would run out the entire way home. Took just under 19 gallons to fill up the next morning.

1991 Wrangler YJ Renegade 05-05-2010 10:00 AM

right now, im running stock everything... and put out about $60 a week, driving to and from school, to and from work, and some round town stuff. I am getting a lift and 33's and I look forward to the increase in gas trips! : (

But you are in a Jeep, if you didnt want to spend $ on gas, repairs, mods, etc. you shouldve went with a prius...

CPD32 05-05-2010 02:45 PM

I spend $25 to $30 (if the top is off or I have a stiff headwind on the interstate) a day on gas. I work 80 miles from home and my 99 SE with 31x10.50's is not so great on the gas.

solman 05-05-2010 02:48 PM

Last week I got about 240 miles out of $47. But I'm running 33s on the stock gears so my speedo in a little off.

N39-W120 05-05-2010 03:08 PM

If ya have to ask, you can't afford it.... :-)

Cons_Table 05-05-2010 03:13 PM

Just filled up today. $46 for about 14 or 15 gallons

Jeepzcb09 05-05-2010 03:22 PM

$45-50 for a fill up(15 gallons) on 33x12.50 and 3.73 gears( which i think 3.73 is perfect for 33's)

APPSTATEwrangler 05-05-2010 05:23 PM

Well lucky for me I live in a college town where everything is a 2 min drive and work is only 5 min......I spend about 35 every other week.

Kohrs93 05-05-2010 05:27 PM

I have a basically stock 94 2.5L 5 speed and before my irlfriend got her licsense I was usually putting in 25-30 a week. Now I make it 3 weeks on a full tank cause i make her drive everywhere :D

wolfen 05-05-2010 05:39 PM

Mine is an 01 with a 2.5 and a auto trans, I pay between 2.75 and 2.85 depends on who's pocket is empty at that time of day, until memorial day when the fat cats here will make us pay between 2.95 and 3.25 a gal to help line more pockets, so I can't tell ya how much it is each time but last time from "your walking soon" light to full was $42

JDsDream 05-05-2010 06:53 PM

Let's see. I have an 06 Unlimited (pretty much stock) I-6, 4.0, Auto.
I filled her up today I was down to about a 1/4 tank. I pumped 14.454 Gallons @$3.1999 totalling 46.24. My mileage for that amount of gas was 184.4 meaning that I am getting 12.7577 miles per gallon.

jim_n_Looziana 05-05-2010 09:21 PM

I get right at 17 mpg in the Yeep, but my 1 ton GMC....daily driver for work......gets around 12. I drive about 250 miles a day.

My fuel bill is between $280-$350 a week.

General contracting is EXPENSIVE, but you gotta pay to PLAY......:D
