Is there anybody with V6 4x4 in NYC or similar traffic pattern?

What is your city mileage (100% city)? Mine is disappointing 12MPG (nowhere near advertised 16) and doesn't seem to get better but I only have 2,600 miles on the car (Laredo X 4x4, V6). Most of my trips are an hour or less. I am a calm driver.

FWIW 100% higway is 23-24.5 MPG - as advertised.

I have the Hemi and 100% city driving is 12.5MPG. That is in hilly Pittsburgh with stops every few inches or so.

You can't compare NYC to average city driving.

I'm in Boston and getting about 14...I would expect NYC to be worse than most cities especially in Midtown.

Yeah, but this is like 25% below (and about your 7MPG - we know you like seeing that fuel gauge needle move all the time , this is an appeal of having SRT-8 ).

Just what did they mean when they said 16MPG? What kind of city? It would be less frustrating if highway mileage was less than advertised, but it isn't. I almost think something is wrong with my car.

It's an avg of city driving. BTW city driving does not mean an actual city. If your driving around in the suburbs and stopping at lights, etc., that's considered city driving and of course you would get better mpg than driving in NYC.

If it is any better for you to hear, when I had my 04 WJ 4.7, I got 10 mpg. LOL


The kind of city they are talking about is like for example Hackensack traffic. hahaha
