Alright everyone I want to bring my findings and show them for everyone to see. Since I've had this compass my goal has been to see what kind of fuel economy I could get! At first I was averaging about 320 miles a tank for city driving with maybe a pass or two on the highway for no more than 5 miles. So I began tweaking my driving, Ie being soft on the throttle, shifting a little earlier especially in the city and braking sooner. But this past weekend I made my 6.5 hour drive from goldsboro NC to knoxville TN just to see how she would do. First before I left I did a few simple modifications. First was removing the cold air tube the ran to the air intake box as warmer air is suppose to contribute to better fuel burn. Next I side gapped the spark plugs and regapped them. The only downside from all of this was the intake was quite a bit louder than usual almost like an sri. Anyways Friday night I topped off the fuel tank, reset my trip monitors and hit the road. Going there I managed to just barley pull off 394 miles on a single tank of gas!!! Again that was from completely full to below E on my fuel gauge!! Needless to say I was excited. But I wanted to make sure it wasn't a fluke. So tonight I repeated the process. Fuel, reset, and go!! I am extremely proud to say that I manage to pull off 400 miles on one tank of gas!!!! Which to my calculations is an average of 29 mpgs!!!! I am beyond stoked!!! My main thing that helped was keeping it below 80 mph and keeping it in 6th on the autostick for as long as I could!!! I am extremely happy with my jeep!!!!
