A light foot is the best way to increase MPG's! I understand though the HEMI is a very fun engine to mess with and floor the gas sometimes. I am easy now though out of fear that if I floor it I may break a CV shaft now lmao!

Yes it was lifted when I bought it. I have a 98 zj with the inline 6 and it gets about 13-14 in the city. I met a guy with a srt-10 viper that got better gas mileage than me. Time for a tune up?

Your mileage seems higher then normal for the speeds you are traveling, is this hand calculations?
It's just off the DIC, but I will be happy to hand calculate it for you this week or next when I go to visit a friend.

Traded the '10 WK w/Hemi and QD2 in on 5/15/15 for a '15 mazda CX-5 2.5L AWD Touring. Happier!

I appreciate the input on what mileage you guys are getting, but I already know what I am getting stock. I am looking for lifted miles per gallon, to see if there is a big hit or not. I know there will be some kind of change, I just don't know if it would be unmanageable or not.

I would just knock off 2-3 mpgs from your current mileage. Everyone's driving habits and conditions are a little different.

The mileage shouldn't be unmanageable unless it's already a burden without the lift and large tires.
