Re: 2000 wrangler gas mileage
If you want better gas mileage, buy a cj! I consistantly got 19-21 mpg out of my cj7 w/ a fresh 258, t-4, and 2.73s w/ stock tires. However i was driving very conservatively, (especially for a 16 year old). But seriously, 15 mpg is pretty pathetic, i would think DC could do better than that.
When i put on a lift, tires. lockers, gears and rollover damage my mpgs went out the window. So i bought a 1988 civic for $450, put about $400 in parts in it, and i have put over 70,000 miles on it in 3 years. it gets 42 mpg so my cost per mile w/ the civic is way cheaper than my jeep.
