Haven't been able to go all highway until today with our 3.0, results were better than I'd hoped.

On stock tires at speeds up to 75-80 (more or less all highway), we saw 24.5-25.5 mpg's.

All in town stop and go on 37/13.5r17 Toyo MT's we have seen 17.5 (with a regen). And 19.5 with no regen.

Today we ran a basically all highway trip at 60-70 mph and eked out 25.86 mpg.

Maybe they won't all do this well. Maybe you don't think 25.86 mpg's is all that impressive. Maybe there will be some shortcoming that will show itself as the Achilles heel of the 3.0......

For now, there ain't nothing that could sway me away from this engine in a Wrangler!

If I can keep speeds at/below 65 in my rubi I can knock down 29 mpg. That is stock w/ winch & 2 people & some tools in NW Ark (so Not flat)
More often tho I have more weight & pulling a 12’ trailer at 75+ on the interstate I see 22 mpg

Still on the factory tire and wheel? Even though I'm sure the trailer isn't all that "heavy" (<<<subjective), 22 mpg pulling any sort of sail is impressive.

24mpg on 37s with 2.5-3” lift, average through mixed driving.
this will be my setup on the gladiator. With a 19 gallon tank, a 450-ish mile range is exactly what I am after. That and the tq of course.
Now if someone would be kind enough to buy my current gladiator, that would be nice.

I get between 20 and 23 mixed. Recently, went wheeling loaded with tools, Steel bumper, winch and steel Rock Slide Engineering with the optional armor and going through small towns and slowing down, but not going over 70 I got 26.1 mpg.

Driving around 110 miles per day and 90% highway I average 27 to 28 MPG. Also considering that I go from 6,000 feet elevation to sea level and back every day with a 2,500 foot gain on a windy mountain road in under 5 miles, this isn't bad. Driving the flats I get closer to 30 MPG. Jeep is stock Rubicon for now.

I drive 260 miles per day. All highway miles. Have only had my stock sport s for only a week. Keeping it between 62 to 64 mph I am hand calculating MPG at 33 mpg. The trip computer is starting to become more accurate as I put the miles on.

Only had the stock 31" road tires for the first 2 tanks, but I was averaging between 30-33 MPG while cruising at 75. Since then I've put on 33" A/T's and my average has dropped to 26-27, but with a good tailwind it will still climb back into the 30-31 range.

Around town the mileage is a pretty bad 20-22, but the hiking spot my GF and I visit every other week is at the end of a winding 26 mile 5000 ft elevation gain road and I'll average 26-27 after going up and down that mountain.
