    Default Gas Mileage

    I am wondering what kind of gas mileage everyone else gets in the city. I know mine sucks, and I am trying to figure out if its just a jeep thing, or my engine in particular?!

    It is that fuqueing Auburn plate on the front slowing you up and causing parasitic drag...I say shitcan it and you'll be better off.

    HEY HEY.....
    WAR DAMN EAGLE BROTHER. Don't mind them - besides, who buys a jeep for MPG anyway? My CJ7 gets about 12-14 mpg in the city.

    My '04 TJ on 35's with a 6" lift gets 10.5 MPG. Remember, you are running a BARN DOOR down the road.
