Help

I have an 09 wrangler and was wondering if I can do anything to my jeep to help out with gas? Like exhaust, headers and intake I'm trying to see if it's worth upgrading or not. Cause I drove bout 100 miles and I'm on a half tank. It don't seem right to me cause I get like 200 miles on a full tank. Please help me out with this one or am I just screwed.

What have you done to it? Like tires or lift which would affect your gas mileage? If you changed tire size did you reprogram anything for that?

Lift and bigger tires eat your gas mileage. I think new gears is the way to go if you do a lot of highway driving...from what I understand. I get about 8-10/gallon in my TJ with 4" lift and 33s. I've thought about new gears, but this isn't my daily driver, so probably not worth the expense for me.

You can get a Procal or a Superchip to program for your tire size, so everything again matches up in your speedometer. This then will you you a correct reading on everything. Do a search and it will explain it a lot better. Well with the money and if you ever change gears you will need one or if you go up to a 35".
