This summer while wheeling, I crushed closed the drivers side exhaust a little bit. Now, while watching the average MPG it has gone from around 18 MPG to about 21 MPG. My driving habits have not changed, I am to old to change those. So, I am wondering if the little extra back pressure is doing something to help the mileage.

I know I need to fix the exhaust, but the numbers make not want to.

Thoughts?

Probably more weather/wind/lack of ac use related.

I have never seen this mileage so high before. I was shocked, in a good way. I have had the Jeep since 2008 and this include highway driving. I am not sure. I will take better mileage anytime.

Hell, I don't even get 12 mpg. Are you sure you're not measuring in kilometers? :thefinger:

I am surprised as well, stock tires? Is that checking by hand or using the display? I know my display is a solid 2-3mpg off consistently vs hand calculations.
