I was referring to highway obviously. city im lucky to get 15. And yes, I drove from LA to San Diego and back at least twice a month for the past year. 20-24 mpg is going 60-65. A few times going 55-60 and drafting behind a 18 wheeler or RV i got 26. took a lot of patience but driving along the ocean on the 5 made it easier. Maybe its my 2wd, who knows. but im also 3" lifted with 31's.
For the record, I wish I had the V8.
EDIT: I really think the 4.0's mpg is underrated on this forum, maybe due to mods causing it to be a dog. A lot of times, i do drive with a heavy foot because it lacks that power. but when i try hard to relax and cruise down the freeway, the mpg really isnt that bad. add passengers and gear, and it really effects it though.
I can barely squeak in at 21mpg with a 2.5 and a 5 speed, no 4.0 ever returned 26mpg.

He's a pluck as they come, or ever can;
He's a hero born and bred, but it hasn't swelled his head,
For he's just the U.S. Government's hired man.
Oh wait I do that, cause the jeep is for when I want actual POWER.
