I have a 2.2L also. Idle jet is either a 50F9 or a 55F9--it's been a few years since I did the jetting and I haven't had time to look since you asked.

With a 4-speed and 205/60-13s (which further lower the final drive ratio) I get right about 20mpg. Not great, but that's at 4400 rpm for the most part. I have a W58 overdrive 5-speed I'd love to put in to lower the highway rpm but need the conversion kit $ worse for body/paint work.

My JH runs great but is appearance challenged as a daily driver here in the rust belt. I restored the body myself 15 years ago and it is well past time to do it again, but that would mean not driving it for many months. Always on the lookout for a rust free body in need of a drive train. Figure I can do that certainly quicker and probably cheaper than a full body restoration.
