I was getting about 16 mpg when I first got it in the winter of 2018-2019(2 door Rubicon, 3.6, automatic), now I am about 18 mpg. I drive in a hilly area, and when I am on a highway I drive around 75 mph. Seemed to get better after about 4000-5000 miles, which is when my area probably also switched from winter gas. We are presumably using winter gas again in my area, its been 13 months since I've owned it, and am still getting around 18 mpg.What did you start with? And what are you now?
Hey consider also doing hand calcs to confirm actualResetted the Fuel Economy reading and the reading is heaps better at this stage. I reckon the dealer would of reved the shit out of it in neutral in their garage and obviously that would result in poor fuel economy reading. Hopefully my recent lower reading of 12.5L/100km sticks with the mixed driving that I'm doing.
No regulations as such. And we only have 91, 95 and 98. No 87. Never even knew it existed until I got onto this forum. I start using 98 but I’m going to use 91 especially since you guys are using 87.What are government requirements for you down under? Do you have to use 91 octane? Here in the USA we use 87 and it runs good. It is also less expensive. Do you have access to 87 octane?
I think the Octane ratings posted on the pumps are calculated differently in the US and Australia so you might want to take that into account.No regulations as such. And we only have 91, 95 and 98.

Yep we do but it’s about $8k more with the luxury car tax our government imposes so short term it ain’t worth it. but they are definitely awesome. Mates got one and fuel economy is obviously better and it’s definitely got a bit of pull.Do you get diesel JL in Australia? I have seen videos of some off-roaders with the diesel Patrol and Land cruisers down there and it looks awesome. Hopefully fires died down...
Well, I'm glad the fires are being controlled. I went to dealership yesterday and was very tempted to order a diesel. The third gen ecodiesel sounds great and FCA worked out the bugs, so I am about to order one. It takes about 4 months to build. I'm buttering up my wife so I can get this new toy. She has to sign loan papers too...Yep we do but it’s about $8k more with the luxury car tax our government imposes so short term it ain’t worth it. but they are definitely awesome.

It’s heaps better with the recent rain but still some out of control ones north east Victoria but definitely improving. Cheers
just brought a 2020 JL Rubicon Petrol 3.6L here down under.
Was told by the dealer and saw in the fuel economy sticker that I should be getting 13.6l/100km around the city.
I’m currently getting 17.1l/100km for urban driving and it’s brand new and I haven’t even dropped my foot.
I got given half a tank and I’ve only done 100km and The fuel gauge has been dropping fast. I’m down to my last bar and I’ve only done 100km.
Thoughts? Has anyone else noticed this or experienced this problem with a brand new Rubicon 3.6l Petrol?
Nice plates.Took delivery last week -JL Rubi 3.6 . Under 1000 kms so far and it dropped to 14.4 /100 with Melbourne morning commute to work. I'll reset and see whether the reading gets any better .
