Full skids + Frankinlift + ARB Front bumper + Rock Lizard rear bumper system + 31x10.50 BFG KM2 + Roof rack and light bar + Air Flow Snorkel + TrashLock + 3.73 = A consistent 12-13 MPG!!!

Can't really complain tho, gotta pay to play!!

Its pretty sad though when my 88 Yj with AMC 258 I-6 and 35" Swamper's gets 16 MPG!!

You may have a humongous speedo error. Compare with GPS.

Believe it or not my speedo isn't off by much. Barely 3 MPH! But I do agree with the GPS!!

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.

Hi guys! First post, ha! Anyway, I get about 350-375 out of my jeep if I ride it to the E. That's not too bad I guess. It's an '07 Liberty 4x4. No mods, just stock (for now).

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.

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.
