2012 Rubi Unlimited Gas Mileage

Several have inquired about the mileage delivered... so far, after almost 3,000 miles, my 2012 Rubi Unlimited with 6 speed is getting about 25 mpg combined city and highway. This is driving it fairly easy, and I don't think it will get much more, but it's still pretty darned good, for a 4,300 brick. Just thought you'd like to know. BTW, the thing is an absolutely fabulous vehicle in every way - on-road, off (Moab, Rockies, and more) and we've even camped in the back. What a rig.

That's about what I'm seeing so far, then again mines only a day old so I shouldn't judge yet.

I have about 1700 miles on mine now. I'm averaging about 16.5 mpg combined city/hwy. I'm running stock tires on a JKU Rubicon Auto with 4.10 gears. My hwy speeds typically average about 70 mph. I'm putting a lift and 35" tires on next week, so it will be interesting to see how the mileage is impacted.

25MPG? Are you sure? Is that going downhill all the time?

I think the most I've gotten in my 2012 6MT JKU Rubicon is about 19...
