4.7L gas mileage...
 
I'm getting around 13 mpg with my 4.7. i was wondering if this is normal for this engine and what i can do to get more mpgs

Over the past year on Jeep forums, it seems all engines (WK's) get around 13-16 mpg. Of course, this is purely independent due to the right foot theory. ;) :p

Yeah, I'm right at 15mpg. I tested the EVIC against real world application and the EVIC was off by about .3mpg (in the bad direction, lol).

For what its worth, the testing we've done with the ported 4.7 TBs I've done, all of the customers have indicated about a 1 MPG increase. Of course this requires driving appropriately, but the gains for whatever reason are there.

I get about the same MPG according to the EVIC. The best I ever got was 19MPG on a long trip. I drive like an ass though....

i just returned from a 1600 mile road trip and I got over 20 in my 4.7 cruising 10 over wherever we went.

i saw a noticable increase when i loaded the superchips. but that trip was on a stock tune plus you can see my mods......

I get right around 14 mpg, but i have the 93 superchips tune, cai, and a very heavy right foot. I mean i can barely lift it.

I did get 47mpg once according to the evic (reset the mpg calculator rolling down a really steep hill at 50 mph and foot off the gas:D)

in the city i get about 13-15 depending on how i drive and on the highway i usually get 20-21. this is with a K&N FIPK too.

Re: 4.7L gas mileage...
 
I average 13-15 in town and about 22-23 on the highway (at 65mph). BUT, a cold-air-induction (CAI) should help a little and a better exhaust if you don't mind a bit more noise.
