Re: V6 gas mileage

In stop and go 11-12 mpg but 1 hour+ for 19 mile commute so.....

On highway at about 1900 rpm can get 21.5+ mpg

Re: V6 gas mileage

95% city is 15-17. hiway is 20-23

i think what you guys are seeing is winter blend fuel vs. summer blend. winter blend yields les MPG.

Re: V6 gas mileage

I do not drive like a grandma by any means but I get a good 18plus MPG. This is a mix of mainly suburban driving with some highway. I have as of today 2000 miles on the little guy and it seems like the mpg is improving still. The big challenge is when I drive from Salt Lake City to Vegas next month; I am hoping I can do it on one tank of gas.

Re: V6 gas mileage

Have Laredo 4X4 with QT1 and out of last 6 fill ups have average of 18.0 MPG for those 6 fill ups. Best I've seen on a 300 mile round trip was 25.7 MPG on the interstate. Presently have 2200 miles on mine!

Re: V6 gas mileage

I'm at 19.5 for my mainly rural commute to work.

Highest trip when it was 15'F was only 21 mpg but a trip on the warmest day this Jeep has seen (50'F) was up to 24 mpg. I think we will all see improvement when spring comes our way.

Oh my 2008 Overland V8 was running 14.5 on that same commute in November so I figure I gained 5 mpg.

Re: V6 gas mileage

3000 miles and it's been in the 30 degree range all week. 19.4 mpg on my last tank with about 70/30 hwy/city. I'm happy with the v6 all around, economically and drivability.

Re: V6 gas mileage

Thanks everyone for the great responses. Mine is supposed to be here on 3/4 and so I'll be able to find out first hand.
