Gas Mileage
 
Please Help!!! I am getting 8 mpg on my 87 wrangler! It is not lifted and the tires are normal. I don't know what to do. I recently rebuilt the carb., but Im not sure if that's the prob. Any ideas?

Proper tire pressure can make a big difference but 10-12mpg is average.

you may want to have your carb checked out because it might be feeding to much gas
i get about 14 to 16 mpg out of my 1990 yj with 4.2 and the ax-15 5 speed

Bingo! That was my main problem when I was getting 8-9 mpg.
Good luck man.
