Moved to the right section.

Alot of it depends on driving conditions, type of acceleration, weight of the tires, true height of the tires, if your odometer reads correctly due to the larger tire diameter, etc.
Party pooper.:D I am getting about 15-17 mpg.

Thanks for leading me to the other thread's. :bow:

i don't know why, but i only have a 13gal. tank in my 2WD Sport. i don't think that my math is that far off. i just drove from Boise to Phoenix and back. Those are the calculations that i came up with, i think?
Maybe, the weight difference of not having an front 'axle' or x-case is giving me these numbers? :dunno:

BTW- i'd MUCH rather trade my mileage for 4WD!!! :brickwall:

:rofl:

How did you calculate that? That sounds really off to me because jeeps only came with a 20gallon tank and sometimes a 15.

Yeah mines a 20 gallon tank, and if I run it so the needle is right on E, it takes 16 gallons.

Lol well me tank whenn filled to max is 19gallons...because someone rearended me and took out a gallon of space...oh and my gas gauge hasn't worked in two years..thank God for a gps that counts miles!! Lol I drove 156 miles of city driving and only filled'er up around 10.something gallons, so about 15mpg, I'd gladly trade 3-4mpg for 4wd too... Lol :cheers:
