Re: My gas mileage sucks!!!

I have a 2001 WJ Limited 4.7L with a probably dirty fram TG air filter and running on Dueler AT Revo 2s 245/70/R17 and I do mostly city driving with my foot on the floor. I get about 13mpg on 89 octane.

PS I really don't give a damn, if I couldn't afford it or didnt need the capabilities of the jeep i'd drive a f***ing smart car...

Why would i buy a Prius? I love my Jeep, im on my 3rd one and would probably not drive anything else!! HOWEVER... i still can bitch about the gas mileage all i want, but obviously im still willing to throw down the $$ to drive it.

I started this thread because i saw some members with lifts and big tires getting much better MPG's than me due to some pretty interesting engine mods... wouldn't YOU be interested in ways a little tweeking might help you save a buck or two at the gas pump??

Re: My gas mileage sucks!!!

I'll get about 14.5 in my 3.7 during the winter, and about 16.5 in the summer. Mine is an all stock 4x4 minus the drop in k&n filter. Although I drove from Omaha, ne to my parents place in Atlanta, ga this week and averaged 21 on the highway so I was happy with that!
