First Road Trip
Purchased my kl on 8/28/15, this last weekend was our first road trip, Sioux Falls to Rapid city about 360 miles one way. First tank of gas from purchase 26.3 mpg. Second tank of gas on the way to Rapid, cruise set at 77mpg 28.6mpg. Third tank in and around the Hills on a day long site seeing tour, I doubt speeds ever exceeded 60 mph got an impressive 31.3mpg ! Filled in Rapid City yesterday morning and headed for Sioux Falls. Cruise set at 77mph for about 2/3 of the trip then I did drop down to 72mph and turned air conditioner off , 349.6 miles and average mpg at 30.8. I'm happy with that, very happy. My 9 speed performed flawlessly the whole trip, knock on wood, knock on wood, knock on wood. South Dakota is straight and relatively flat. I think you could set Lane Departure and take a nap. I checked numerous times and I was always in 8th gear. The few times that I was coasting down hill (coming into Chamberlain) I checked and I was in 9th. I love everything about this Jeep. I certainly hope they have this 9 speed figured out because if mine works the way it worked this weekend for as long as I own this vehicle I'll be very happy. (knocking on wood again).
