I used to get 15 when I bought the jeep. Still got around 14 avg when I rebuilt the motor, but it deteriorated pretty quickly. I now get around 11 :( Hopefully this bumps me up a tad
That's similar to my experience but I didn't get any MPG improvement when I pulled the OE O2s and replaced them with NGKs. I checked my plugs next and they were roached. I replaced them and MPG went from 11 MPG to 14-15 MPG.

The build has been put on pause because Im trying to buy a daily due to the price of gas. Looking forward to 35-40mpg in a Nissan Versa. This was an attempt to gain a few mpg back so I stop maxing out the pumps everytime I fill up

Any build plans for the versa. Maybe a sway lock and some tuned foxes for a better ride with all the time on the street?

I thought about doing that the last time gas prices spiked, but I can buy a lot of gas for what another vehicle is going to cost me.

Ive needed another vehicle for a while. The jeep is not practical at all to daily drive for me. Selling it is not going to happen. building my credit score, get better MPG, and have a comfortable daily is a win for me

I daily my LJ, 30 miles each way, but, full disclosure, I do have the wife's Ford Edge for trips, and I have a Harley I can take when the mood strikes.
