Good Lord that's lousey mileage. I know it's a Jeep, but 14-17 mpg? The CJ5 I bought off the lot in 1981 got 16 mpg. I hope y'all are all driving Rubicon Unlimiteds w/ 37's, 4.10, Hardtops, and a couple of anvils in the back.

Remember, compare the actual miles driven to the amount of case used, not just the MPG given off of the trip computer. They can/will differ.

(X 4DR, Auto, 17" wheels) - I get just under 17 with 18 at the high end and 16 at the low end... mixed driving. Those numbers are from using the trip odometer and gallons used (i.e. calculator) - It seems the computer isn't all that accurate...it is usually a bit more optimistic...

I get 10 mpg, off road in low range, in a 4 door Rubicon, brand new. Love the bigger gas tank.

I like to go to the Fuel Economy site and keep track of my mileage there.

I have a 4dr X with an auto. Stock.

Around town I get 15-16mpg

On State highways (meaning I am averaging about 55-65mph) I get 20-24mpg

On freeways 75-85mph I get 17-19mpg

I also live at 7200 ft. elevation which really affects the power. If I put my ski rack on I lose about 2 mpg.

I can not wait until summer and I put the ATV trailer on.

The mileage should really go in the toilet.

But it sure is fun to drive

This is in line with what I was figuring. Most people who are complaining about the lousy mileage are also complaining about the engine's lack of power. They are probably pushing the engine and the mileage will suffer. I would think that a 4 door X with a 3:21 rear should get around 16-17 in town and 22-24 on the highway. IF you are getting 18 mpg at 80 mph, that is good mileage.

I was thinking about that myself - knowing how the 3.8/6c is after a couple months I question if I could purchase a V8 even if it was an option. I think I would choose - at least as a daily driver now - the 6 and balance fuel economy and power. The $50 a week fill ups are getting old already!

I've been getting about 16.5 mpg in mixed driving - but I haven't gone through a single tank of gas where I didn't go crawling around a little in 4wd low range, so I'm guessing that has effected it some. Overall, it seems to go about as far on a tank of gas as my 99 TJ did.
