If it's not supposed to move and does use duct tape.

Mine has since dropped down to 16 mpg. That's due to having to use the heater while driving and the occasional 4Wd for the snow.

The use of your heater has absolutely NOTHING to do with a vehilce's Fuel Mileage.

^^Well, then maybe it's because it's sitting there warming up for 5 minutes or longer while I'm brushing off the snow and scraping the windows. In any event, the mpg drops a few in the winter, and definitely drops even more when using 4WD

EDIT: It's more than likely the winter blend of gas they make us use in the northeast.

It's good to know that running the heater has nothing to do with it. Thanks, Katmandu.

^^That is pretty good mileage. I didn't buy my Jeep for gas mileage, either. But I'm happy that the gas mileage is far better than my '06 had been getting.

Actually, if you use the defroster, the A/C compressor runs, so dry air is hitting your windshield. That can certainly affect gas mileage.

I get around 18 on my 16 mile commute to work...50/50town/4 lane. 2013 Rubicon 6 speed with 33" KM2's and 4.10 gears.

I have a 2011 rubi auto right now I am getting around 14.1 mpg according to computer in the summer it says around 16.5. I never reprogrammed for by 35s nor have I hand calculated it. I really don't care it needs gas I put gas in it .

Find a station that sells non ethanol fuel in the grade you put in your ride. I found one near where I work and am going to start filling up there. It is 20-30 cents more than the ethanol junk but on my first tank I am going to see at least 2 more mpg if not more. I have an app on my phone called pure gas and it tells you where all non ethanol stations are around you and what grades they sell. It also keeps up with your location as you travel and keep you updated. The results I am seeing are with 89 octane the lowest grade I can run with the RIPP supercharger.

@715racing: Thanks. That's what I thought as I usually use my defroster. I had thought I had read that it used the compressor.

@mello: I may have to look for a non-ethanol station around me. I know there are a few, but no sure where. I'll have to look around. Of course, it will still have that winter-blend

good info. I am passing a non-ethanol station on my way home tonight and I happen to need fuel so I'll stop in.

curious to see if it helps. I have 1/4 tank left or so . But I think I should see some improvement.

19-20 mpg cold weather, 20-21 mpg warm weather,...w/ 27K miles on my JK, 3.73's, 6 speed, I shift gently, around 2K rpm, coast often, brake little. This is "suburban style" driving, some highway, lots of secondary roads/streets..my dash gauge reads almost always 1 mpg optimistic of manual mpg calculations btw..
