Re: I'm blown away by the MPG on the 2014 3.6L

Here is the EVIC shot from my trip. ACC set to 65MPH A.C. on, Stuck in one traffic jam for about 1/2 hr. She sipped the fuel like a super model getting ready for the runway. The Average went down 4 tenths after I restarted to take the photo. When I got home it read 27.5, at the Holland tunnel it read 28MPG. I wonder why Chrysler under estimated the MPG's? Others have been reporting better that EPA estimates also. Alas my normal day to day driving is skewed toward city driving. I am sure I will still do better than my 2005 did. Give me 16 overall I'll be a happy camper. BTW, the fuel gage shows the fuel left after just one fill up at 1/4 tank @ the Mason Dixon line. If I was brave I bet I could have made it home on one full tank, granted it would have been cutting it real close.

You love being a grandpa...there's the secret sauce for hyper-mile'd economy!

DRIVE LIKE A GRANDPA!

We could all learn a lesson from that.

Re: I'm blown away by the MPG on the 2014 3.6L

I routinely get 30 mpg at 60 mph. In a 4000 mile round trip out west, I averaged 25.5 driving 72-77 mph.

I also suspect that Chrysler under-reported the fuel economy of the Pentastar in order to make the diesel engine look a little better, for all those tree hugging folks out there. But then again, in one month we might have folks with diesels reporting 35 mpg, driving 80 mph towing a boat.

Re: I'm blown away by the MPG on the 2014 3.6L

Yea, I was taking it easy to break the big girl in. I doubt I'll ever see 28MPG again. While I am no longer a speed demon, I usually stay 5 MPH above the speed limit. That means top speeds of 75MPH.

I certainly hope so! Diesel engines are 30% more efficient as a matter of pure physics. With all the EPA crap, it may be less.

I'll be happy with 30-32 hand calculated mpg unloaded at 75-80 with no attention to driving technique. The Australians are reporting similar results.

We shall see.

Re: I'm blown away by the MPG on the 2014 3.6L

I just did a ~4k road trip in the Midwest and my evic said 26 mpg at the end of the road trip. I saved my gas receipts and calculated myself and it was actually 24 mpg exactly. I'm happy.

Re: I'm blown away by the MPG on the 2014 3.6L

Keep in Mind that EPA ratings are based on Fully Loaded. At least the old EPA Formula was. I think it still is. So for a 4 passenger sedan that means 4 passengers and some weight in the trunk. On small cars a few passengers can make a huge difference.

My trip was with 4 Anderson Windows, 2 small Dogs, my Wife and some overnight luggage So probably about EPA specs.

Based on other reports I look forward to seeing what this will do in the long run and it looks like I'm not that far out of the norm so far.

I expect we'll see some very high numbers above EPA for the Diesel too. How much is the question. Some folks with VW TDI's rated in high 30's by EPA get in the 50's.

Re: I'm blown away by the MPG on the 2014 3.6L

I can't say that I've been getting stellar mpgs. My wife and I average 19-20 by the time that tank is about empty and on the highway it get around 23.

Then again, we live in San Diego where you are either going up hill or down hill.

Re: I'm blown away by the MPG on the 2014 3.6L

we are getting the about the same, 18-20 then 23-24 highway. we also dont reset the ongoing average for each road condition. I imagine the "city" could be lower and the "highway" a little higher if i reset it for each condition.

Im on Long Island, so its either suburb stop and go, slow traffic, or 80 with lots of accel. on the highway.

Its all in the driver though. My wife managed 20 on a almost all highway run to her cousins(50miles round trip), i can get 19 doing nothing but town driving. Then again when she drives the pedals have two positions, on/off with nothing in between. And its all throttle until she hits the brakes.

My wife has the same style. I tried coaching her into safely coasting to a stop, lifting the foot off the gas for a few seconds and let the car slow down before braking, it ain't happening...

Re: I'm blown away by the MPG on the 2014 3.6L

I just took a 1900 mile trip from the Dallas/Ft Worth area to Grand lake Colorado running 75 plus most of the way and a little over 100 passing on two lane road. for the whole trip. highway, mountains and all the 2014 GC Summit 3.6 4WD quadra lift got 23.7 per computer and 22.6 per calculation. I'm happy with the mileage. I like the GC a lot better than the 2011 ford explorer I traded in.

Re: I'm blown away by the MPG on the 2014 3.6L

Did the same trip this weekend with AC Off. Got 29.3 MPG on the EVIC. This is strictly highway. Light foot. And that was now with OEM mud flaps.

Combined I'm getting around 24 mpg on the EVIC but that's with mostly highway miles.
