    I was told to expect -3 mpg so I am good with what I get. As to range, you might note that when my needle is dead square on empty, there is still 2.5 gallons in the tank per the specs. That gets you another maybe 50 miles. I have never run it to empty but would like to know if this holds true. I would also like to know if running out of gas hurts anything. I heard that before but am suspicious.

    I noticed when aired down and all day on the trail, i lose 2 to 2.5 mpg. A lot of trail time will effect your avg if anyone is keeping track of that.

    Like others, I get around 250 miles a tank. That's me fueling right as the light comes on. I know I could get more if I pushed it. Driving across country I average the same. The best I ever got was 280 something. I think that is pretty good for a JKU on 37s and 5.13s.

    I get around 13mpg. That’s with 35’s and stock 3.73’s. Oh and I’m not terribly heavy on the throttle

    In all things complicated, the simplest answer tends to be the right one.

    I'm getting close to 300. But that's with a 19 gallon tank. My 4 cylinder treated me well before my transfer case blew up.

    When my indicator get to the point that it says 30 miles of range left, if I drive it 30 miles, I usually still have 2.0-2.5 gallons in the tank.

    That sounds about right. I have heard it said that it is not good for modern cars to run to dead empty. What is the issue if any?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
