Try resetting every 5th fill up to give your Jeep more time to average your mpg. When i first got mine and zero'd it heading off the lot, my mileage was terrible. Then I jumped on the highway and watched it climb up. If you zero it in the city, start, stop and idle are going to keep it veraged low, but I would be willing to bet you will see your number move up if you give it more time and more numbers to toss into the average?

I've got a stock JLSU with some kinda heavy steel steps installed and I'm averaging about 23-24 mpg over the last 2k miles on the stock 245 Michelins.

I don't baby it.

yeah, I’m guessing you were going down a mountain once you pulled out of the gas station…
Scott, we have no mountains in Florida.

Lol yep you'd be surprised what cruise will do for your mpg:like:... Unfortunately, mine is also driven by an 18yo who I won't allow to use cruise. (She needs to pay attention to driving.) So I'm currently at 23.9mpg:giggle:

I use cruise anytime I get on a straight road, and rarely run over 60mph.

Sorry, didn't notice where you were from... LOL But even on flat ground, my past 6 Hybrids only got 32-45mpg, so what you posted ain't normal for a Jeep...

I used cruise control as much as possible, even in town at 25-35 mph zones.

Did a 3 hour trip last weekend and made note of a few things
cruise cont 76 mph = 16 mph or less (speed limit in northern maine is 75 and other cars where flying by me)
71 mph = 18-20 mpg
50 mph = 20-23 mpg

Once you get over 70 mph the mpg really drops off.

Go the speed limit instead of 5-10 over and use CC for best results.
