Re: My gas mileage sucks!!!

Luke averages 16.5L per 100km.

I average 18L per 100km - Im a lead foot

WK 5.7L V8. Quite fine if you ask me considering our 03 4.7L Grand did 20L per 100km.

Re: My gas mileage sucks!!!

I WAS getting about 17.5-18.5 MPG but since the winter hit me, I'm getting 16-17 MPG. Stock ride height with winter tires.

Re: My gas mileage sucks!!!

This time of year, I average 12-13 US MPG combined city hwy. I usually mash it from a red light/stop sign, otherwise it would be slightly better.
My 4.7 WJ was 14-14.7 in winter.
I bought this GC because I have owned/driven Jeeps for close to 40 years, and I wouldn't own anything else.
Fuel mileage is never part of the equation for me. I have to run premium fuel, and pay $1.22 per litre, which is close to $5.00/gal. I'm not rich, just love driving, especially Jeeps.
