5.9 mpg after a 300 mile trek

Hey guys, I just took a trip to the Poconos from Atlantic City New Jersey. Camping gear, two people, a yellow lab and coolers of food and beer. We hit an hour of bumper-to-bumper traffic, and still averaged 14mpg of mixed driving. I have to say, she ran BEAUTIFULLY! Turned 134,000 miles. I think this is a respectable mpg considering the tire on the roof, lift and larger tires along with a full load. I love this jeep.

You need to see the "Storm of the Century" episode of Always Sunny in Philadelphia. A big hurricane comes and Mac keeps screaming that they should take off for the Poconos haha.
