I just saw over 700 on a road trip out west.. when running under 70, the truck was pulling a consistent 30+, easily would have gone over 700. 14 gc eco diesel. Jeep has 38000 on it, mileage seems to keep getting better. (34-35 at times).

The GC got 835 miles for the tank at a hand-calc'd 35.5 mpg. Not bad.

Re: Hypermiling the Diesel JGC: Max Range, 700, 800, 900 Miles?

Am bumping this because at 0330 in the morning, we (4 adults) will leave on a 1,000 mile round trip to Oceanside / Camp Pendleton in my 2016 JGC CRD. I will do some MPG checks at different speeds using the JGC's computer, and an overall MPG check at the end of the trip, calc'd by hand.

My rig has 13K miles on it, so it's still new. I'll see what I get and report back here.

I will be interested in this, as come July I will also be doing a 1000 mile trip to Pendleton, from Oregon.

My jeep will be a MY17 Trailhawk diesel fresh off the show room, so it will be interesting to compare mileage between the two.

Re: Hypermiling the Diesel JGC: Max Range, 700, 800, 900 Miles?

Best I have done was a hand calculated 30.0 MPG from Raleigh NC to Huntsville AL, through the mountains. Gassed up after 650 miles, but had another 2+ gallons in the tank so could have hit 700 easily. Also, this was with ~2k miles on the odometer.

My best so far was 30.55 mpg hand calc over 397 miles. A lot of 50 to 70 mph highway driving. That was at 13166 miles on the odo. Now 19800 miles on the odo.

Re: Hypermiling the Diesel JGC: Max Range, 700, 800, 900 Miles?

The best fuel economy I have hit in my '15 4x4 with heavy Skid Plates and driver only is 31.5 MPG driving across Oregon and Idaho on 2 lane when I picked the Jeep up brand new in Bend, Ore and drove it home to Montana. All of that trip was 65 MPH or lower. The most miles I have hit in a tank is 719 miles and that is loaded with family and gear - that trip avg'd 29.9 MPG. I only have 7,000 miles on the odometer so she isnt broken in yet. Midnight (Jeep Grand Cherokee) | Fuelly
