Over the 14k I’ve had my jtr manual with a tonneau cover, 315s on aev saltra xr’s, arb stubby and a warn winch I’m getting 18 mpg. Daily drive is roughly 60miles a day doing around 55 to 60 mph.
What model, trans, gears, any mods?Apparently mine forgot to break in and get better fuel economy
I have 23k miles and I’m always being told I drive slow as $&?!. I do not go over the speed limit and as of right now I’m avg 15.7mpg for the 23k miles.
I swear something isnt right..stock I was getting 17mpg. It hates anything over 60mph
My brother has the same model with 305’s and he gets 20mpg going 70mph
I hit 65 and I’m looking at 14-15.
May need to take advantage of this trade in deal.
Dumb question, but I’m sure you recalibrated for the mods so the computer knows what’s going on?@Toyfrog see my signature block. I added the suspension, 35's and winch late last summer. With stock gearing "3.73's" and the 35's I never saw 8th gear, spent most time in 6th unless going down hill, very strong tailwind, then it would slip in 7th only to go back to 6th if one of the earlier mention things didn't happen. I installed 4.56 gears this past Feb timeframe. MPG's did not improve like I was hoping but it certainly stays in 8th now unless an incline or strong head wind at speed.
Im guessing its not bad as it seems but with La. being relatively flat and my brother having a Sport S JT "3.73's" as well and his got better milage than mine when I was stock and he had JTR suspension and 305's.
That just never set right with me. We both use cruise a lot.
Yeah, its JScan'd and within +/- .5mph, best I could do...set for 4.56 gearing as well. I do like the gearing though...so much better than the 3.73's.Dumb question, but I’m sure you recalibrated for the mods so the computer knows what’s going on?
Yeah those do matter. I remember when I took mine off and installed the aftermarket bumper, I could literally feel the added wind drag. It was weird. MPG decreased on my weekly commute too.Yeah, its JScan'd and within +/- .5mph, best I could do...set for 4.56 gearing as well. I do like the gearing though...so much better than the 3.73's.
I certainly feel better with you saying that. Weird how some just get better mpg's though... IE my brother. I ride with him and seriously its like WTF!? I guess those little front bumper wings help more than you'd thing, lol...he still has his on. "shrug"
There are several manual versions of cars that still get better than the auto equivalent, but usually it's so close, it doesn't matter anymore. My last car was a manual 2019 VW GLI, where the manual got better mpg. My wife's vehicle is a manual 2018 jeep compass, which also gets better mpg than the auto, and before that I had a WRX STI, and although the STI only comes in manual, the regular WRX gets better mpg in manual compared to auto. Usually these days, the difference is only 1 mpg though, so not enough to really matter, but it's definitely not a rule (yet) that auto gets better mpg. It really depends on the gear ratios chosen by the manufacturer (for EPA ratings; real life depends on the driver too)Jeep is one of the few manufacturers whose automatic transmission programming doesn't net better fuel economy than the manual at this point in the game, so that costs me 1 mpg in this analysis (I need the truck for truck things, and the auto is necessary to get those numbers).
