To be honest, I'm surprised my Fuelly average is that high. That's tracked for over 10,000 miles as well so I'd imagine it's fairly accurate. About all of that is with my lift and maybe 5000 of it is with my 31s. All in all, I guess for what my ZJ has done to it, that's not too terrible for an average.
I used to be good about actually logging mine. I got lazy after a while. I still calculate every tank, but I'm not so good about tracking it anymore. Here's the data from when I did log religiously: http://ecomodder.com/forum/em-fuel-l...vehicleid=3613

It's been about 1.5 years and 28k miles since I got lazy about it though I'm entertained to see that I got the tanks from when I brought my parts ZJ home on there. I'd forgotten that I broke 11 mpg on the highway towing another ZJ on a trailer, lol.

I slammed into a hidden pot hole covered in rain water and snow melt, felt that something wasn't right and I pulled onto a side street to check my tires. Front passenger was okay but my rear passenger tire went flat almost instantly after the hit. I turned on the flashers and started changing the tire in the rain, when two more cars rounded the corner, flashers on with flat tires.

I offered to help one of them out as well, an elderly gentleman who had back surgery recently, and changed his front tire quickly.

I suppose I'll be checking the tire tomorrow and hoping it can be saved, but I doubt it.

I went about a year without logging mine because I wasn't daily driving it. I ended up daily driving it this December because I lost my job with my company car. Now that I have another job with another company car, it's probably not going to be tracked anymore again.

I did that last year with my company car. I knocked the tire off the bead, from what I could see. Firestone didn't think that though, or at least they told the lease company I needed all 4 new tires because the 4 wheel drive system couldn't handle different tires. I would have argued them but they didn't give me the chance. I went there to pick it up when it was done and it had 4 Primewells installed on it. Luckily, the lease company paid for it and not me...

Those are custom bends to allow more air flow. As long as most of the air gets filtered......

Fixed my low idle and slow crank issue by tightening battery cables. I love easy fixes. Also, does anyone know why a ZJ needs 4 female seatbelt ends for the back seat, or is it just mine?

Oh, ok. This is my 4th ZJ and I don't think I've ever noticed.
