Re: My gas mileage sucks!!!

2005 - 4.7l - last fillup calculated at 13.5mpg EVIC is at like 15.3mpg (last tank was alot more city driving with the holiday family jumping). Generally I drive about 30miles freeway and 10miles city a day, I drive 65-75 on the freeway, but I rarely stomp on it, I usually creep out of lights and stop signs.

I love the V8 though!

I started this thread because i saw some members with lifts and big tires getting much better MPG's than me due to some pretty interesting engine mods... wouldn't YOU be interested in ways a little tweeking might help you save a buck or two at the gas pump??
He's joking! Laugh, it won't kill you.

Re: My gas mileage sucks!!!

2008 Grand Cherokee with 3.0 Diesel - 18 mpg in town, 25-27 hwy. Stock wheels, hell, stock everything right now except K&N intake. Love this Jeep. Get this, it has 7500 lb towing capacity to boot - surprised they didn't make more GCs with the MB diesel.
