help 24 mpg to 9 mpg

So i have an 03 with a 4.7 with my 2 inch lift i did new plugs fuel filter all new bushing tres alignment cleaned the tb and sensors and i was getting 24mpgs. At my last command i did upper and lower arms and trac bar. Motor and trans mounts rotors brakes and went up to 255/75/17 on moabs and i dropped down to 9 mpgs. I tried running bp premium and a cleaner and i still only get 9. Any ideas?

Brakes are probably dragging. But don't expect any better than 15 mpg with a lift and 32s.

Also, if you are using the overhead console for MPG, don't. They can be as inaccurate as 50% off, mine is about 30% off and I'm on stock tires.

Not trying to cause are argument but I doubt you ever got that MPG.....more than Jeep claimed for it when new even for a standard vehicle! As Billz said you need to tank full to tank full measure to get accurate results.......maybe your EVIC has suddenly got accurate!
