And yeah I'd probably pass out seeing an actual fuel bill for one.
Running 75-80 on the interstate is probably a little worse than the 9mpg, but 9 is probably a all around average. It gets expensive on long trips for sure.

I don't know if this has been mentioned but my mpg didn't really level out until around 2000 miles. After that I get close'ish to the 23/25 promise. Faster than 65 highway speeds it degrades to around 23 but outside of any crazy hills or awful traffic for hours I'm getting close to the promise in my 4cyl turbo mild hybrid. It's been a breath of fresh air as far as Jeep mileage goes

On an off again on again semi tech-e then some real tech trail the real time read out was +/- 10mpg. This trail went on for 4-5 hours, then a race to the bottom on a FS road for about 28 miles, then a hiway drive to back home at about 75mph maybe 80 miles.

14.3 mpg.
lifted, 35's properly calibrated, aired down to 17 on the trail otherwise aired to 37. JLUR

Given what I did with it I was pretty impressed.

it's all about variables. I went 2.0 turbo for mpg and the torque. Having driving manuals for years and 6 cyclinders, that combo is bad news for mpg. Toss in a lift and tires, quadruple trouble. With those variables in place, I wouldn't even look at mpg, sorry to say.

As for comparison, stayed stock size tires but switched out the rims. No lift either. I get about 24 mpg highway with the 2.0. Pure madness compared to past lives with manuals and v6.

YUP, I don't usually care about mileage either-but I just drove from Nv to Ca (234miles)and my AVG, with the 3.6/auto, was 24mpg-(computer)-

Flawless performance, except for a TRUCK ROCK in the windshield--

Have any of you guys had good luck using the GORILLA GLASS for replacement ??

Thanx

To my knowledge Gorilla glass doesn't have JL yet. We already had to have ours replaced and I made sure the guy used factory glass for the Alpine stereo system. When you have that stereo you have a special acoustic glass, you can see the word "acoustic" on the lower left hand corner.

Just drove from Tennessee to Michigan in my JLUR with 37s and a lift. I was loaded down with tools, a cooler, and four people.

I averaged 18.8 running about 73 mph for a tank full of fuel. It started out at 19.2 but dropped to 18.8

This is the 3.6 with the auto. I am very happy. On the trip down, I averaged 17.6 mpg

That's pretty good for 37s all right. Have you regeared or is that still with 4.10 axles?

Going over the hills and far away
We just took JL to the coast of North Carolina (Southport). Leaving our house with 1100 miles on the odo, we drove 261 miles with speeds from 35 - 70 mph. The little computer thingy said it got 26.5 mpg. Not bad at all for a brick with 4 wheels, and a lot better than I expected.

Disclaimer: there are no mountains on the way to the coast from my humble abode. Just some hills, and they aren't that big.
I'm hopeful that

"Special glass" in a jeep sounds strange at first but makes sense.
Technology is all around us.

4.10 gears stll. I do not see any reason to regear unless you plan to tow heavy.

2.0 here.

I’m light on the foot feed, mostly. Gotta hit the turbo and light up the tires from a stop sign now and then though, just for fun.

My long-term average is 22.3mpg. Nearly 3000 miles.

I routinely hit 30mpg+ going 45-50 on relatively flat county roads, which is where I do most of my driving in rural Texas.

I get 25-26 cruising at 60. I seldom go faster. I’m generally in no hurry to get to the next place, and I diligently try to appreciate where I am. I see a lot more of the adjacent terrain and wildlife at 60 than 70.

Saw a coyote this morning that I would likely have missed if I was going faster.

I understand that others need to go faster, but I don’t.
