Anybody getting this kind of mileage?

I found this Jeep ad in the local paper today.
Anybody getting this kind of mileage on a 2011 4X4 V6 WK2?

Re: Anybody getting this kind of mileage?

So I have the Hemi 4x4 but there's no way that the WK2 even with the V6 and 2WD gets 32mpg. More realistic is 23mpg (I think the ad was proofread by dyslexic people). FYI 8.9L/100km converts to about 26mpg.

4x2 V6 gets 23 hwy mpg... 4x4 gets 22, per EPA.

I imagine someone at the dealership "mistakenly" got the numbers backwards...

Re: Anybody getting this kind of mileage?

Per Wikipedia:

"The imperial gallon is used colloquially (and in advertising) in Canada and the United Kingdom for fuel economy figures, in miles per gallon"

Re: Anybody getting this kind of mileage?

Sorry us gallon is only used in the US.
UK and others Oz use imperial gallons for mpg.
32mpg=8.827L/100km imperial gallon used.
