2012 Jeep Wrangler: Fuel Economy Update for May

June 3, 2013

2012 Jeep Wrangler

After an extended long-term test it was finally time to say good-bye to our 2012 Jeep Wrangler. May was its last month on the books. April saw its last hurrah as far as mileage accumulation was concerned. Most of the past month was spent parked with a "for sale" sign in the window. All lifetime fuel economy vitals are noted below.

Worst Fill MPG: 11.4 (low-range off-roading, before and after mods)
Best Fill MPG: 21.0 (19.0 after mods)
Average Lifetime MPG: 16.3 (17.3 before mods / 16.0 after)
EPA MPG Rating (City/Highway/Combined): 17/21/18
Best Range: 315 miles (305 after mods)
Current Odometer: 32,249

    I was hoping to see a few more mods and offroad excursions before it left. Hopefully Dan Edmunds keeps us posted on a few of his wanderings.
