this might be a stupid question but will tube fenders instead of stock effect gas milaege at all?

I really don't see why it would effect it. I also doubt there has been any real research on this

yes, because by adding tube fenders you add bigger tires, adding bigger tire causes your milage to go down, they do not directly effect it but you get the drift.

How about this, if you had the Jeep Spirit, you wouldn't abuse the rest of us trying to enjoy a nice day out wheeling by bringing your brokeass broken down junkyard crap out to play where it can't handle it?[/QUOTE]

Here is a thread from another forum where having flat-fenders was considered to be the cause of poor mileage.

Flat fenders may make you a little less aerodynamic but the jeep already has the aerodynamic properties of a sheet of ply wood so I don't think tube fenders will really make the much difference.
