It's possible to do a little better, but it is the nature of the vehicle that controls mileage. It's a beast, no matter how you look at it. What I do is run the oversized aftermarket gas tanks, usually 23 Gallons or more, as opposed to the factory 15 Gallons. Increases your capacity by 50%, and driving distance 50%

Easy install, too, very straightforward! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

I wish I could get the kind of mileage any of you are getting. I get a little over 9MPG in my '79 CJ5. Stock 304 with Holley 2 bbl, headers and 31" tires.
