Boston,
Thanks. it seems the difference between the 8 and 6 are so small everyone I talk to thinks the hemi is the way to go. I can't help but care, every little bit we do for the Earth makes a difference.

Re: 2014 hemi 8

Average 13's. I drive in traffic daily.... Yesterday, mixed some highway driving was was up to 16's, and saw 18's earlier this week on the highway. In my case, I bought it hoping to average 15... and i'd be thrilled , so we'll see over time.

And yes evern if you buy a gas guzzler, some people do monitor their mpg, not all of us have deep pockets... Even semi truck drivers who get much less mpg than us, care about their gas mileage, lol..

I set it on ecomode yesterrday, and haven't driven it briskly, just normal, so we'll see.....

And I also don't have mom and dad to pay for my gas, lol... so I have to care, lol

Re: 2014 hemi 8

Thanks,
I really care about the mpg's not just because of the $$$$ but I am very
concerned about the environment and the part I play in it. I try and do what I can for it and talk about it to others, so I'm concerned about how people will view me driving around in a hemi 8. I also feel from here on out we are going to be hit with extremes in the weather big snows heavy rains and a Jeep will be an asset. I'd be interested in how the eco mode performs. People keep saying get the eight there won't be much of a difference between it and the six. Thanks for your reply and good luck.

Pyrenees

Re: 2014 hemi 8

If you are concerned about the environment do not buy a jeep.

A leaf, Prius, hybrid, etc... is the right car for you, anything else is hypocritical and will hurt your credibility as an activist.

Re: 2014 hemi 8

Lucky you. Nobody will know what you are driving unless you tell them. The 14 Hemi has no badging to indicate such. This way they will think the environment is a top priority.
