8-9 mpg is scary with 3.50/gl gas, have you had the chance to get a baseline with the EFI mod?

I have not done a baseline check of the fuel economy. I hope to do it this week. I want to do do the test with the three main fuel octanes to see which is the better value. Supposedly the fuel injection setup requires 93 octane to avoid pinging. I will report this week.

Great job!!

Your uncle flat out rocks. Call him asap and tell him! Loved the umbrella idea! I am currently out by the pool under one and I laughed out loud seeing it! Great idea!

Hope you are enjoying the Jeep!

Thanks Mortenst. Sorry I didn't respond sooner, I have not been around in a while. The seats are original that have been reupholstered.
