Re: Auto or Sport - Fuel Efficiency

Seems to be the general consensus here, although why am I wasting 17.5L per 100Km is beyond me if it’s advertised as 13L per 100km. I am not racing or anything just simple driving without any enthusiasm... False advertisement I guess..

I am getting less than advertised but that is because of where I am located. It is stop and go and a lot of hills where I am at. All of my previous cars were 3-4mpg below the "City" rating and this Jeep is one 1-2 under, so I think it is doing pretty good. I don't know where they get the raing from but it isn't in Pittsburgh, PA. I don't care about fuel mileage though, anything this big isn't going to be good on gas.

Maybe the "Sport" mode is in my head, but I like it. I wish I could make it default to "Sport" instead of "Auto".

Re: Auto or Sport - Fuel Efficiency

Hemi: I can get it down to 11mpg on a pure Chicago-city-cycle (stop, sit 10sec, move 10ft, repeat) but my suburban cycle nets me ~17mpg and highway I can count on 20mpg and often see 23mpg. A VW GTi I had got 14mpg given the same Chicago city routine, FWIW.

Re: Auto or Sport - Fuel Efficiency

I think sport mode can be more fuel efficient vs auto mode. Acceleration in sport mode is indeed quicker, so when vehicle is cruising at a stable speed it takes a minimal amount of fuel.

I drive to a train station during the week in a bit of traffic, and do a few highway runs, I also do more open road driving on the weekend.

I am averaging 11.6 and with the open roads it gets down to 11.2 I run mostly in sport mode. I have the v6. I have done 1800km now and it still seems to be improving.
