Which engine/transmission? Jeeps are never going to get good mileage but you need to have the optimal gearing/power for the tires you are pushing.

Not being a smart a$$, but wouldn't this just be a somewhat pricey visual reference for driving with a lighter foot? I'm sure it's not too expensive, but I couldn't imagine it making enough of a difference to offset the money and time having to install it. Afterall, it is still a jeep.

It tells you things your foot can't. Quite effective.
