Sorry guys I know it's been covered but the search function just says no matches for the last hour.
What's a 4 door 4wd auto with small lift and 33's or 35's getting in the way of MPG?
Thanks, Justin

In town with my stock 255/75/17's I was getting about 16. Just put on 33"s no data yet. On the highway previously, probably around 18 give or take.

An other MPG thread? My question? You bought the JK for mileage? You lifted and put on tall tires and still expect mileage? I gave up looking at mine, although I found that mine gets really good mileage when towed behind the motor home. .....smile....

My average is about 16-20 city and highway combined running the stock mud terrains on the 17" rim.

My record is 25 mpg over 100 miles. Then again I was doing 60 in sixth down hill most of the way and the rest of the way behind a semi.
