1989 Jeep YJ Just got 22 MPG city!

I have a 89 YJ on 33" tires and 4:56 gears. Stock Carter carb with rigged K&N air filter on it, Magnaflow cat with no muffler pipe running all the way back, I also have the right speedo gear to.... Today I filled up and calculated my mileage and got a little over 22. This was all city driving maybe 10 miles highway, and through hills to.

Anybody else gotten good mileage? I cant believe it lol!

45 miles and 3 gallons of gas equals 15mpg. Did you use a calculator?
