According to the Ultra Gauge Mounted on the dash, my 01XJ with 3 inch lift and 31" tires is getting me 14.8mpg right now. In the summertime, it would get 15.2. This is just driving back and forth 11 miles to work each way, not much highway. Both my cats are bad and the CEL will come on about once a week due to that. I clear the CEL with the gauge whenever it comes on.
I drove to Boston last year and reset the average MPG on the gauge, and on the highway I got 19mpg while driving between 60-70MPH. The gauge helps you improve your MPG by showing you instant MPG as well. You see the number going down? Let off the gas a little.
It plugs right into the OBD2 port. http://www.ultra-gauge.com/ultragauge/

I get 15mpg with 33's and 3.55's with a city hiway mix. On the hiway Only I get 19.8 which isn't bad with all the armor I have I can not wait to get 4.56's

33s on 3.55 buddys

Why going to 4.56s though, jumping to 35s?

When the 33's wear out it'll be going to 35's. And living in the moutains and wheeling with lots of ledges to bump up. The extra deep gearing is always a plus since the Xj usually only gets driven when it's on the way to the trails

I just bought my jeep about a month ago. All stock and at 130k. My first tank was 15mpg. I think about 80 of those miles were freeway driven.

Haven't driven mine enough to know. But I've filled it twice and only have 50 miles on the trip odometer. ^_^





Been letting it run and idle/drive it on my property until I get to changing the break-in oil from the new motor. Havent even plated the damn thing yet.

I'm getting 15-16 MPG or 225-250 Miles out of a tank of gas. Now that is city. On the highway probably little better.

I get 19-20 highway, 32's and 3.55s. Noticeably less in city driving of course.

the xj i just got rid of was gettin about 12 in town with 31's. my 95 with a 4 cyl would regularly get me 20-22 in town, back roads, uphill or mudholes. the best i got off of it was 25 driving through small towns. i would say i drive like an old lady, but my mom only gets about 16-18 on the same roads. guess who has the lead foot

I get around 20 mpg on the highway, 12-14 mpg in the city if I keep my foot out of it.

89 with 4.5 in lift and 4.56 gears with 33x12.5 and I get some where around 15 in town and a solid 24 MPG hwy 2x4; in 4x4 its a bit lower. She use to get better stock, I use to be able to go from Missoula MT to just out side Seattle WA of 1 tank and after 10 trips doing that had a HWY average of 26.5 mpg.

Hi all,

Yep, this is pretty much what I get too - once I convert to your little gallons from our mighty imperial ones!
No matter how ya look at it, it ain't pretty

I convert to l/100km just to annoy and my 98 4.0HO all stock with 225/75 r15 tyres gets about 18l/100km in town and 13l/100km on the open road without booting it. My Jeep loves to drink....
