Did this happen overnight or was it a gradual loss? Did you do any kind
of repair before you lost the gas mialage? Is there a check engine
light on or did it come on and go off? Did anything weird happen before
the jeep got bad gas mileage? It's hard to diagnose a problem like this
without actually touching the car.
Any other info might help me steer you in the right direction.

when was the last time you put in fuel injector cleaner? I put in Lucas Oil Injector cleaner every other or every oil change.
There are alot of factors affecting your gas mileage. Tire wear, tire pressure, wheel alignment, air filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, oxygen sensors, just to name a few. So to say what you need is just shooting in the dark without more information. I would probably start with your oxygen sensors, and then perform a tuneup. If your vehicle pulls to one side or the other when driving on the highway you need to stop into the shop for a wheel alignment.

Do you have a gas smell in vehicle if you do there check and make sure that you are NOT loosing gas by a leak in the fuel line that was replaced or anyother part of the fuel sytem for that fact. If there is NO leak then the pressure from the pump may be too high and therefore dumping too mucj fuel into chambers but if this is true the vehicle may have a hesitation on take off or may run a little roughand a rich burning smell from exhaust, Check these things out make sure that the fuel pressure at the injector rail is correct refer to your repair manal for exact specs,because I NOT sure what it its, good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

You can keep using that oil with no problems. Most people don't really understand what the numbers on the bottle actually mean. There is a really long definition but here is the short version: The first number represents the pour point of the oil at freezing (@32 degrees F).
The second number represents the protection offered, compared to a "straight weight" oil eg: 30, 40, 50, at 212F degrees. Therefore, at freezing, your oil will pour (or flow) like a 20 weight oil, and give wear protection of a 50 weight oil at 212 degrees.
The quality of any oil is based upon the chemical makeup of the base oil, some have a high parafin content and are prone fo sludge formation, while better ones do not and tend to last longer. The ability to "change weights" with temperature is controlled by an additive "package" which is part of the product formula, as are other features such as anti foaming and the ability to keep particles in suspension.
If you stay with better oils such as Castrol, Quaker State, Valvoline etc. You will have no problems. (especially because in your area you don't go from sub zero to 100's).
Don't forget to add a quality filter to your oil changes. This is as important as your oil!!!
Good luck with your car!!!
