I’ve got the mopar lift, 37x12.5 Nittos and 4.10 and am getting 15-16 after the FlashCal.
Same setup, same results (rubicon). Drive mostly highway at 75-80mph.

16.5 mpg city on 35x12 ko2 and most lift. Lost 1.5 mpg after tires and lift.
See this is the data you want to see (the delta), as everyone’s MPG varies wildly anyways even stock

I’m extremely jealous of all of you. Some how, my average MPG is only 12mpg. 75% city 25% highway driving.

2018 Wrangler JL Rubicon
2inch BDS lift
35x12.5 Nitto Ridge Grapplers
Factory gearing
Front/Rear Metal Bumpers, Fenders & Liners.

Definitely need to figure out a way to increase that to the 16-20 range.

Here is your answer.

These are heavy tires. A BF Goodyear tire about the same size is 10 lbs apiece lighter.

It looks like only one of y’all has listed your running PSI. I think that’s an important data point for comparative MPG.

Check your MPG at about a 1/4 of tank and that will tell you more. I get that MPG after just filling tank too. I get mine much later in tank. More of Avg.

I havent reset that button since I bought the car. That average mpg is indicative of the entire mileage thus far. As a matter of fact , I drove it for quite some time today and it went up : This is the average since day one , I dont reset it when I fill up. If we lived in Nebraska I bet it would get over 30 easily !
