so yeah i know that boxes are so aerodynamic but 13 mpg city on a 94 4cyl manual? and i get like 12 1/2 highway but i think thats understandable cause i usually drive at about 3k rpms on long trips
let me know what you guys think and is there any mods that will boost it a little like an air intake... i know its not gonna be a smart car but would like to get a little bit better considering i drive back and home from shore usually once a week thanks guys
There's a few things you sacrifice when you buy a jeep. Gas mileage, speed, and passing people.
Hmm, only if you only stay on the beaten path. If you toss a few dollars toward a different motor you can have all 3. I got 20MPG out of my 5.2, can stomp anything under a hot mustang/camaro/charger type of rig and can easily cruise 80 down the highway if I want. If I keep it at a leasurly 65 on the highway I can get 18 MPG out of it no problem.
In reality the only thing you can do to help increase your mileage with the 4 banger is a light right foot, take all the weight out of your Jeep as you possibly can (remove back seat, no top/doors, etc) to make that motor work as little as possible to get you up to speed. You might also consider going to a bit smaller of a tire, which will help 2fold, less rotating mass and less friction.
With a 2.5" lift and 31" TrXus MTs. Winch, 2 built bumpers, tire swing....etc.
I was getting about 18mpg.
-I run a air intake, 4.0 TB, pace setter header, 8mm wires, Champion plugs, and free flow exhaust.
4.5" lift and 35" TSLs i still get 13mpg. But im going to a 5.2L this fall, like Mopar... I cant wait to have to ability to GO fast if i want!!

OOOOOOOOHHHHHH MAAAAAAAN just wait until you take that first drive. I still grin ear to ear from how much power I have available whenever i need it!!!!!!! Even with the stock 4 banger muffler it has a nice tone to it. Its quiet enough to where people dont know what you did until you fly past them and they still dont know what the heck happened lmao!
