That doesn't sound too crazy for a lifted brick with bigger than stock tires on it! Especially at 75mph. I guarantee you that if you keep it at 65mph you would see maybe 16mpg.

I do have to remove them on my premium soft top for 2013. Probably the same for the not premium. I think the only difference is the fabric.
