Haha...I'm getting 10mpg and I'm completely stock with the 5.2L. Believe I have some leaking injectors.

Mine by hand is 10-11. The overhead has a sense of humor.

My overhead's telling me I'm getting 17.2 at the moment. So really, about 15. Which is still damn good for the driving I've been doing, especially in a cammed niner.

You must spend some time on the highway. I need to fix my plenum. Hopefully that helps.

Mine says 12.9, no matter how I drive. I probably average about 11 or so.

11.7 steady. I try to be easy on the skiny pedal.....but it runs sooooo much better around 3k rpm!

That actually matches my hand calculation too.

96 ZJ sittin up 6" on 35's with 4:56's and a 12k winch. Cuz...why the hell not!?

During the summer an average work week i run about 14mpg. But its 75% hwy with 2 stops. I drop to 11 in the winter due too the 30min warm up to make sure trans shifts proper. I also found according to the overhead my best mpg is around 50mph. Stock everything.

With 80% highway driving I get 17-18 but I'll get 20-22 if it's pure highway with my 5.2. Maybe I'm lucky...

I have noticed that around 55 I get my best mileage. I am stock except for a k&n cai, 3" lift and 31" bfgs. Has anyone noticed better fuel economy when using higher quality gas ie shell over something like 76. I live in Las Vegas and I can not find an ethanol free station here.
