Aware of what your MPG should be?

If you're not sure if you are getting good mileage for your particular vehicle, try this.

Cool post They don't have Wranglers in there, but the Cherokee 4.0 L is the same. Just add more drag.

Re: Aware of what your MPG should be?

Hey, I just noticed that. But they do have the '95 and '98 Wranglers (among others) in 2.5 and 4.0; manual and auto - I imagine one of those would be basically the same as your '97.

Mine's off a bit from the EPA estimate due to extra weight and wrong-sized tires - and they don't take cold weather into consideration either.

Re: Aware of what your MPG should be?

Yea the 98 is exact during those years. I have the big tires and lift as well. I have to change my speed sensor gear real soon so I could get correct mileage readings then I will know what's going on.

Thanks for looking at the other years I didn't think of that. Duh. They didn't make the Wrangler in 96. So I guess they didn't publish the 97. It's all the same.

Re: Aware of what your MPG should be?

Great post Mark,
According to that, my truck in bone stock form would get 19 mpg city, and 22 mpg highway. Now that I'm lugging the 33" tires around with it, I can only assume my actual mpg is much less. I think in the city, I'm only getting about 450km to a tank....14-15 gallons, so thats about 270 miles.
Interesting though. Thanks.

I have a 95' Tacoma with a 3.0 v6 and it doesn't even list that as a motor.

Re: Aware of what your MPG should be?

Great info. I'm about 2mpg shy of what the website shows. Guess the 33's did it.
