This was mostly highway driving with the cruise set on 64 mph. I’m on 37s and in the NC mountains.

I'm a little concerned that at 3K miles, mostly city driving, I'm only getting 19 mpg. Stock suspension with 33's and no extra add ons.

The mpg’s of the diesel are impressive and make me wish we’d waited, although I love the 2.0t so far. What amazes me is the number of people buying wranglers for LONG commutes. Even if my wrangler got 40 miles to the gallon I wouldn’t want to wear out my expensive off road tires that fast, let alone the rest of the wear and tear items. I’ve commuted for 20+ years, at least 150 miles a day and there’s no way that’s remotely cost effective. I’ve bought cheap beaters back when I was an apprentice for the price of 1 of our 37’s. To each their own, but I’ve never looked at our Jeep as a commuter car.

2,000 miles averaging 18-19 mpg on 35s in mostly city driving. My 3.6 JK on 35s averaged 13-14 mpg under the same conditions. The delta between the two official EPA combined estimates is consistent (exactly) to the delta that I am experiencing.

In 100% highway driving I get 25 - 27 mpg.

if I’m spending any length of time in a vehicle I’m driving what i want to be.
if that’s a wrangler for some so be it. Some people are fine driving a Prius because it’s cheap snd on the opposite side my next door neighbor drives 200 miles a day in his GWagon.

we’re all on borrowed time might as well enjoy it

My comment about budget beaters was just an example from a purely financial aspect. I haven't been an apprentice or driven a beater in decades. I 100% agree that you should commute in something comfortable if you can afford it. As much as I love our jeep and jeeps in general (I think we've owned 10 in the past 20 years) the off road prowess come with on road compromises. Take a base model wrangler, for the same $30k+ you can buy a mazda 6 grand touring, loaded, with the 2.5t. Unless your commute includes rough terrain, the Mazda destroys the base wrangler. Faster, quieter, better handling, smoother on the road, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, better mpg's, heated and cooled seats, concert quality audio, and on and on. Our loaded 2019 jlur has most of those features, but the our Mazda does all of them better. The jeep was double the price. In the $60k range, the jeep is likely the slowest, least luxurious, worst road vehicle in that price range. As I said, whatever floats your boat. Our jeep is plenty comfortable for road trips (pretty much all of which involve some off roading), but there are far better commuters out there in my opinion.

You are probably going through more active regens too in those driving conditions - so averaging 19 mpg in that situation sounds about right.
