Gas Mileage

I am posting this in the YJ and TJ areas too:

Do you notice a difference in mileage with your top off?

That is very wierd. I seem to get my best mileage with the top and doors on. It seems to bump up around 3mpg or so. I think it has to do with decreased drag. I know that it takes a lot less pedal to make me go with the top/doors on.

The bikini top doesn't help my mileage, but I get a lot of dirty looks, and people hide their children's eyes, and....

Oh God, wait, I mean, er......

Wrong forum.....
