I expect to be ordering a Gladiator in the next month or two (selling my current truck while the market is hot), and trying to decide between gas and diesel. There's a thread in the diesel forum re: real world mpg, but not here in the gasser section. So, post up what you're getting along with any mods that might affect it, driving mix, driving style, or whatever else seems pertinent. Thanks!

Completely stock Mojave with a/t's, drive slower than grandpa, easy acceleration, mostly highway but some city. I'll turn off the climate control just to make sure the start stop kicks on. My best "average" 16.6, current 15.4. I have no idea why I dropped 1 mpg average overnight either, just got in the next day and it had changed.
I'm still under 2k miles though and it was only getting 14.x.

I have a rubicon gladiator on the mopar lift with 35 inch ridge grappler tires and I daily drive it and average 15-16 mpg city/highway. If I’m strictly city I only get about 11 mpg

Wow! That is an awesome reply to this question! Also, what app is that?
Fuel up is the app. I've tracked every tank of gas so far.
Mpg stuff is fun to me I try and do it like a game. Even in my little 4cyl car I had I'd try and see what I could squeeze out of it. If I were to do it all over I'd probably do a sport diesel.

I immediately jumped on the app store, but that appears to be Android only. I also track (everything) that goes into (every vehicle), but I'm more old school. I have an expandable binder with folders and a moleskine notebook. Every fill up with date, mileage, and mpg, every fuel receipt, every wash receipt, every accessory receipt and manual. The whole nine. It's nearly pathological.

Dang, I'm sure there is something similar out there. I like tracking stuff too. Good way to find trends.
