any mud tire gets worse milage because of the resistance that it has compared to an all season tires, most all seasons have an almost continous tread, where if it was made of metal it would still be a perfect circle. a mud terrain or swamper is more or less a polygon, not a circle. 'large voids" are essentially flat spots on the tread, causes noise and friction.... look at a bike tire... a great knobby dirt tire vibrates on the cement.... a nice slick racing tire is super smooth and fast... Its the tires

also the cold weather my xj has been eating gas too
