Improving gas milage

I just found a great way to improve the mileage on my heep. When i first bought the thing it was running 235.78x15's. Mileage was just about 16 1/2 mpg's. I swapped the roller skate tires for some 35's. I checked the mileage yesterday. It was 20.41.

Who says jeeps get lousy mileage?

(Yes i know i need to correct the speedo but i love saying my jeep gets over 20 mpg.)
