Really low mpg??
Hi..I have been contemplating lifting my cherokee, but also selling it for a better one/already lifted one. It is stock (01) with 136k on it, and i get 12.5 city, and 20 highway....i don't understand why my city mpg is so low..which is what deterred me from lifting it..because the mpg would be even worse, when i know thats what i should be getting after a lift kit...everything is mechanically sound and up to date...the only thing i could think of is that is needs a very small alignment, but not to where no one can drive it without fighting steering, and i think it needs a hub bearing in the front, from a whirring sound that correlates to the jeep's speed.....my mpg wouldn't be from those to things would it? I find that hard to believe.........also because i was looking at a cherokee that was lifted a while ago that did not have the speedo/odo gear corrected, so the speed and mileage was obvioulsy sightly off....but the truck also had a mpg calculator in it and read 10.8mpg.....so would i assume that would be lower than the actual mpg as well since its going off the same readings the speedo and odo are?
