After problem with my aircon compressor bearing failing, and reading a post from Halford about bypassing it and increasing the MPG a fair bit, I have ordered a belt to bypass it and see what difference that makes, maybe other aircon jimnys have the same problem?

According to my fuel spend app, I'm only getting 22 MPG, not the advertised 35.

I think she's running a bit rich though, any idea why?

Also I heard from the AA Bloke last time I broke down, that the aftermarket Catalytic converter might impact the amount of fuel I used

I went to Edinburgh this weekend and it cost me £149 in fuel :woohoo:

I'm getting about 200 per tank based on 100 miles per half tank, running Goodyear wrangler 217-75s no lift.

Heard that the stock exhaust can be a bit of a nightmare for fuel consumption so plan to get a new SS made at somepoint

You have to get one made? Is there nobody making an aftermarket SS pipe then?


IF IT AINT BROKE, KEEP FIXING IT UNTIL IT IS

Not in stainless front to back. More's the pity.

Temeraire (2018 quasar grey automatic)
One of the last 200ish of the gen3s, probably.

Not that I've seen. Question is if the garage that does it near me knows the best way to do it for a jimny

Around 200 miles for me as well, with mud terrain tyres fitted and I drive mostly short trips, nothing above 60mph.

1999 Jimny with 3" lift, Redacted transfer box, under-body protection, Cooper STTs and folding cup holders...
