KJ Intake MPG Results
Well I finally did all the gas mileage calculations of the Myrtle Beach trip.

Jeep: Mine
Engine: 3.7L (you know, the one everybody hates)
Passengers: 3
Cargo Area: Full, backseat folded too
Rear End Noticeably Sagging: Yes, bad.

Gas mileage on the way there: 21.2MPG
Gas mileage while there: 14.4MPG (Myrtle Beach is nothing but traffic)
Gas mileage on the way back: 21.5MPG
Total Miles Driven: 1,950
Funny, my EVIC was reporting (almost) the same dang thing. + or - 1 or 2 points.
Maximum Speed, according to GPS: 105MPH
Average Speed, according to GPS: 72MPH.

Amazing. Especially considering weight, mountains, and my sister's heavy lead foot. ;)

I will say, that engine was working mighty hard up those mountains. But it made it up and down twice. :)

Now the trip down to Alabama back in January was very disappointing because with only ONE more passenger and the same amount of cargo, I only averaged 18.6MPG there, and 19.9MPG back. (2 less passengers, 2 less people's cargo)

Re: The Talk About Anything Thread
But there's just too big of a gap between those two road trips. The ONLY thing I have done to the Jeep were 1. Bosch Platinum Spark Plugs and 2. The Liberty Intake.

Could those two have seriously had something to do with the increases? I've only noticed an increase in the city since the spark plugs, but highway has gone up considerably since the Liberty Intake.

Re: The Talk About Anything Thread
I'm seriously considering throwing the stock WK intake back on, making a 100 mile highway trip, then swapping to see if there's different numbers. My driving style didn't, hasn't and never will change, so that couldn't possibly be it.

Someone please help me. Could that resonator actually be killing our wallets more than necessary in exchange for quietness?

Everyone go out and get intakes for Libbys! LOL.

I'm thinking about doing the spark plugs too? What do you recommend?

Re: The Talk About Anything Thread
marls change it out and see what happens in 100 miles!!! that would be great to know!

KJ Intake MPG Results
OK, I finally got to test my intake idea out on the highway for MPG results. I noticed no gain in the city, but check these numbers out...
