Gas mileage queston - '90 YJ

I recently bought a 1990 YJ and the gas gauge is broken. I haven't had much time to diagnose the cause, but I was hoping someone running a similar setup could give me an idea of what kind of mileage I should be getting. I'm trying to avoid completely filling the tank as the filler hose leaks when the tank is topped off. Anyhow, here's the rundown:

1990 YJ
2.5 liter engine
5 speed
4.88 gears
35" MT tires

Thanks,

Jimmy

That's probably pretty close, I'd say 13-14 most likely. Maybe as high as 15-16 depending on driving style, but that's probably tops.

Thanks guys. That's good news considering my last ride got 8.
