Stock JLU Sports S Unlimited, with 33 inch stock AT tires. my tires are at 38 PSI during highway speed of 70MPH, and i'm getting 25MPG on average. I also live in North Carolina, so depending on your altitude your MPG would change.

update time. Went from stock (above) to a 1.5” spacer lift and Rubicon wheels with 295/70/17 M/T’s and I’m down to around s 19-19.5 mixed.
...and a few more weeks into the daily grind we’re stuck at 18.2. Guess I’ll take that for what I’ve done to it.

what I’ve noticed is maximum mpg is between 30-60 mph.

if you spend a significant amount of time at freeway speed or in stop and start, your mpg is going to suffer.

hth.

I run a mix of everything and currently hovering around 20 mpg.

Used to get 20mpg on a mostly stock ‘18 JULS

added Mopar 2” and 35” BFG KO2s and my mpg’s continue to go down. Currently at 14.5mpg with no change in driving behavior, more cautious and slow if anything. Kind of annoyed

Everything stock was getting up to 27mpg hwy, went to 295/70/17 Patagonias and heavier ATX wheels, went down 1.5 mpg, added Rubicon suspension and went down another mpg. So getting in the 24 to 25 mpg hwy driving is quite good, and having a 2 door helps w/ that too.
For real long trips I put my soccer-mom Michelins w/ Sport wheels back on to have a quieter more economical drive, but doubt I'll be doing much of that anymore, that Hertz rental Jeep look isn't what I'm after, lol.

Running all stock, getting about 17mpg combined highway and city. I'm curious how some are getting over 20 mpgs. I was hoping I'd be closer to 19 or 20 mpgs.

To get your true MPG you have to reset your gauge that computes the MPG before you go on a trip. I have a 2018 Sahara JL with stock tires. I run the tires between 31-34 psi. On road trips I get about 20-22(sometimes 23) MPG depending on how many hills needed to climb.
If I left my gauge alone and never reset it, I would probably be at around 18 MGP or less.
So I average around 20-22 MPG road miles and around 16-18 city driving.

Getting 20 mpg on combined driving with the JLUR V6. I have a pretty light foot, mostly 67 mph on highways so that helps, probably about 22 on mpg on the highway. I'm almost all stock, only change was some weight from the rails and aftermarket front bumper.

I have 1800 miles on the odometer. Average is 18.2. However, this includes sitting in the car line each day to pick up kids from school and 3 days of wheeling, where we were averaging less than 10mpg. I figure without these, we might be at 20? On our only long highway trip, we got 21.5mpg with 4 people at 72mph. This was mountainous I-40 in NC.

3.6, JLUR, auto

Mileage will depend a lot on terrain, wind, your cruising speed, etc. I have a 2019 JLU Sport with 3.6L and manual transmission. Mods so far are 32" tires (255/75-17), and Rubicon suspension. I'm solidly over 20 mpg overall. Winter gas blend will drop my mileage 1-2 mpg. I'm pretty happy with my JLU so far considering what my JKU used to get.

2019 JLUR, 33's, 3.6L. Get a solid 19.6 around town and 18.4 highway, Likely because I am on and off that accelerator. No cruise control for me.
