Outside of replacing the vehicle, there is not really much you can do. Keep it tuned up, and regular oil changes. These things are notorious for drinking gas. Even new ones. If it has a Quad-Jet Carb-Replace it with an Carter\AFB - Change Camshaft(check with your camshaft dealer 4 correct applacation)---Put in a Lower rear Gear(for the Highway) A GOOD Distributor with a HOT Coil.etc. ANSWER You can install an overdrive transmission. A 700R4 is a very common transmission swap. Your engine will drop 1000 RPMs at speeds above 40. And it has a lower 1st gear, so you use a lower throttle opening when excelerating from a stop. If the truck is a 4X4, you can also swap the transfer case to a NP208C, which is a lot lighter.

How do you make my car get more mileage per gallon?

Well there is not a good way to make a huge difference in your MPG but there are a few things you can do to make it a little better. You can buy an air intake system and have it installed (such as a K&N ). You can improve your mileage just by not letting your gas tank get less than half empty. For some reason or another you get better mileage by keeping it more than half full. You can also increase the quality of your gas by pumping it at the slowest rate possible. Also you get better mileage from places like Shell than you do at WalMart.

Do manual transmission cars or trucks really get better gas mileage and cost less to maintain than automatics?

Two things - repairs cost less on manuals because all you're really dealing with is a clutch instead of a whole transmission and manuals typically get better gas mileage than an automatic because you are in full control of the gear you're in.Most definitely! They are better all the way around. Esp. when it comes to repairs. Learning to drive a stick just takes practice.This all depends on the driver. Yes, a manual transmission does cost less to replace. A manual transmission has the availibility of better gas mileage depending on the drivers decision to run a higher gear whenever possible. Higher gear = better gass mileage, less acceleration....less fun .

How can you get your jeep to get better mileage per gallon of gas?

Many things, like getting new tires, getting premium gas. basically the same for any vehicle.Premium gas will not get better gas mileage for your jeep. In fact, most cars state not to put in premium gas. All you are doing with a higher octaine is filling the pocket of the gas company. Check the back of your jeep to see how much you have in it. A heavy load of items or tools can cut MPG.The second answer is correct. Premium fuel will not increase mileage and is a total waste of money. Make sure your tires are inflated to the recommended PSI. Drive for mileage, as in slow starts and driving the speed limit. Jeeps are geared in such a way as to not get good mileage. If you wanted a vehicle that got great mileage you should have never bought a Jeep. You will never get great mileage with this vehicle so either live with it or sell it.
