I have a 130 stop paper route and I just got 287 on my last tank and when I filled up I still had 4 gallons left in the tank. I have managed to get over 300 while towing a 18' 4000 gvw camper with 2 18" kayaks on top of the jeep. I can also get 400+ just driving on the highway. This is with an 07.
Today my Liberty sport turned in the best gas mileage since I have owned it.. 25.1 mpg!!!!
a new record for it. 127,000 miles and going strong!
Excellent, I finally did new Autolite AP5224 plugs and PCV, checking mileage today, it was running fine with the old ones but I wasn't sure of their age, 96K miles and it's been rock solid.
How about your springs? I did new shocks last year and while it was much improved, it now feels loose and here I read, springs on these wear out! OME brand recommended, about $75 each but had I known I'd done it with the shocks, the labor will be awful. Enjoy.
I have a 2003 liberty, 5 speed man. Tran., with 202,000 mile. I was getting 260 until the E comes on. After changing spark plugs and full synthetic oil, I drove down to Missouri (from Michigan), got 350/tank before the fuel light comes on. Pretty impressive!
Nice - what plugs? Someone here previously posted the various fuel tank capacities of different model years, I recall it hopped around from 17-20 gal, something like that. So it would be good to maybe tell your fuel tank size and mileage in this thread.
You are asking "how many miles per tank". 02 and 03 had smaller tanks. Not sure exactly but I think 18 1/2 or something like that. Not sure about 04. I have an 05 with the 20.5 gallon tank. So tank sizes are different.
Anyone know the facts on KJ tank sizes over the years?
Mine is the 2003 with the 18.5 gal tank. It's an early 2003 because I have the 45RFE tranny, so I'm not sure if they changed the tank when they switched the tranny. Anyways, I get anywhere from 340 - 380 miles/tank. My average on the computer has never gone below 16.5 mi/gal, and that was with a lot of stop and go. I can get 21-22 avg. on the highway with fresh fluids and plugs.
