Hey guys,

Questions for those who own a V6 eTorque:

What kind of MPG numbers are you seeing...
  1. on the stock 32/33-inch tires?
  2. on 35-inch tires?
I am still weighing keeping my Sahara V6 with 13 MPG vs ordering a 2022. I keep going back-and-forth between a diesel and a V6 eTorque. I'd like to get the full-time 4WD if I can but is not available on the diesel.

Please don't forget to vote

Thanks in advance!

I have the stock Firestone MT’s on my 2 door Willys with the E torque. I drive 95% on the highway 70-75 mph, and I average between 21-22 mpg

I’m currently averaging 19.4 lifetime (19,100+ mi.) on stock Firestone M/T2s. I do a pretty balanced mix of city and highway driving.

Are you on 35s? 13 mpg seems exceptionally low even if you are.

Agreed.

I have a regular non-eTorque V6 with Selec-Trac on 35s. I am averaging 13-14 in the city; 15.5 on the highway.

Is that 315/70R17? I.e., 34.4 inches...?
Nope, 305/70r17 as in 33.9x12.2r17

315/70r17 are 34.4x12.7r17

I purposely chose that size to have a lesser impact on power and mpg.

But honestly, I was recently parked beside another Jeep with 315/70r17 BFG K02, and not only did my 305 look just as big, it actually looked fatter. Both were on Rubicon wheels and I had to go read the sidewall to confirm that it was a 315/70r17, cause I first thought that these BFG were either 295/70s or 305s even though I knew that BFG doesnt make 305/70s in K02s. So I was pleasantly surprised to see that my TOYOs physically looked that big.
