Re: Highest MPG reading on your WK

I can hit 39 MPG in my 06 Hemi.... Costing down a mountain.

Currently I'm at 15.5 with 91 octane running the DiabloSport Trinity 91 octane tune. Usually 13.8 with 87 octane/tune. Maybe it's just been my driving lately, but I love having more power with better fuel economy.

Re: Highest MPG reading on your WK

Just did about a 350 miles +/- up and down I-5 for some vacation time spent up in seattle with my wife. The Jeep explained to me that with its wonderful aerodynamics that it didnt appreciate me asking of it to do 80mph for 120 miles... I was stuck at about 17mpg. magically I hit some traffic and construction zones (not litterally mind you) and it started climbing to about 18.2 by the time I got into my driveway. Jeep performed great, hopefully tomorrow (with my continued time off) ill be in to work installing some goodies!

Re: Highest MPG reading on your WK

I got over 28MPG coasting downhill a few times. On long trips I'll reset when I reach hiway speed & get 18-19MPG. Which isn't bad after my lift + tires. My speedometer hasn't been calibrated to the bigger tires, so the numbers are actually reading low since I'm covering more distance/revolution.

Re: Highest MPG reading on your WK

Before the lift and tires and when I was living closer to sea level and the Jeep was new, I would consistently get 22 for the week. That was city driving but most was at about 50mph. Now that my top speed for the week is about 35, and I have the lift and 33" tires I only average about 14-15. In the winter when it is more fun to disable the ESP and slide around corners at full throttle it's about ten!

Re: Highest MPG reading on your WK

I get 18-20MPG's. on I95 you never know if you'll get stuck with 10 minutes of traffic or 3 hours of it. I haven't tried the new Diablo Gas Saver Tune yet. Ireally wnat ot try it!

Usually around City I'm getting around 12-13MGP's on a 93 OCT Diablo Tune.
