I was just curios what, if anything JK owners are doing to improve the fuel mileage around town....
I drive like a senior citizen on Sunday, flashpaq mileage tune, I have an 08 jk w 2" lift and 33's and I get appx 20.5mpg in the city 23 highway
truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies...
Keep it 65 or less. Fuel consumption is substantially worse above 65 mph. That is if I am thinking about it. Most of the time, I am thinking I am driving a Jeep and having fun, with fuel consumption the furthest thing from my mind.

Too many mods to list. Too awesome to sell.
your not getting the worst gas mileage in the world. 15-19 is pretty good. most pickups only get like 13-17. so yeah when its my day off, i dont give a crap about anything negative. live it large.

Please remember the digital mpg gauge is not accurate, so 20.5 around the city sounds like a number from the dash

I drive my VW Diesel for a daily driver, so when I'm in my JK I don't care what I am getting for mileage. Maybe you should look into a small car for a daily driver.

I can pull 20.5 combined 20% city 80% highway, hand calculated. I drive like Miss Daisy in town, 6 spd manual, keep the rpms below 2k and pretend I have an egg between my foot and the pedal, very frustrating for those around me no doubt.. On the highway, I keep speed at 65, never anymore than that. Go 70 or get a head wind and I get 18.5 hand calculated. I have run 70 on the highway and into 30mph headwinds and I have gotten 14 hand calculated. My ranches are an hour south and east of where I live so I get lots of road time to test conditions. Keep your tires aired up, keep the extra crap (weight) out of your vehicle, and drive slower is the best you can do driving a brick.

If you eat, drink, or wear cloths then you're involved in agriculture.
I have not hand calculated my MPG yet because my mileage counts slow because of my 33's. Now, I wonder if I'm actually getting better than the indicated MPG on the dash because I am covering more distance than the computer thinks?
