I have a new to me TJ, a 2000. I know they have poor MPG ratings anyway, but I'm getting 14.4 on a tank. Is that normal for a TJ with 103k? Anything I can do to improve it? I drive 50 plus miles round trip, and more than half of it is high way. Help, please!

When my jeep was stock I got about 18 on the highway and about 16 or so combined highway city.

On the highway I could get about that or close lifted with 33's and 4.56 gears. My jeep is an 01 5 spd with the 4.0. I have about 80k miles on my jeep.

Both my 00 TJ and 05 LJ would average 14-15 mpg. LJ was stock, the TJ is lifted 2.5" on 31's. The only thing you can do to improve it is make sure it's tuned up and running like a top, slow down and don't race around. No mods will get you better mileage, so don't waste your money, so just stick to stock.

That advice is worth more than the Fitch fuel Catalyst

Slowing the brick down, use the cruise control if equipped, upshift early as possible without lugging, get the weight out, and don't try to compete with the speeding idiots!
