Picked mine up this weekend. 3.6 auto. 70 mph for about 200 miles I was at 19.9mpg. Only have 500 miles on it right now so might get better as it breaks in too

i'm averaging 13.5 to 14.5 liters per hundred kilometers, which if i'm correct works out to about 18.5 miles per gallon. i have 8000 kilometers on it now (roughly 5000 miles)

JLUR.. 2.5 inch lift and 37s..300 mile trip and I got 18.2 mpg keeping it around 60mph.. around town the worst I’ll get is around 15.25
Unrelated to this initial thread, but I have searched without finding much info on the Rubis specifically, and I know you would be able to answer! Same setup, JLUR with 2.5" lift. How are you running your 37's? Wheel size/offset/spacers? Regearing?

I have a relatively stock rubi with the 33" KO2s. Daily driving allocation is 80% City / 20% Hwy and I get about 16-17 MPG. Might get higher MPGs if I drove it cautiously, but where is the fun in that? Costco gas has been a haven for my wallet for sure haha.

I get right around 16mpg all city driving. I use the remote start a lot. Will be switching to mobil 1 AP this week for my first oil change. I am curious to see if my mileage increases.

I'm itching to place my order and have been holding out for the 2.0L (which the MPG numbers aren't out for), but I really want the manual. My commute is 120 miles / day all highway, so the 23MPG I see on the sticker for the 3.6L is good enough for me.

Wondering if anyone can report some real world highway MPG numbers for their JL Rubicon (3.6L). I know ill lose a few if I go with the manual but that's a wash on the extra cost of the 2.0T and the Auto.

Can anyone report a true 23MPG Highway in a Rubicon?
Honestly, who among us lives in the real world?

My 2019 JLR Auto. I average about 19.7 mpg everything is still stock. I'm planning on adding a 2.5 lift and dirty life DT-1 wheels and keeping stock bfg tires. Will also be putting on a rockslide Auto sidestep. I'm curious to what my mpg will change it to.
