Gas milage? Post your results!

Jeep pushes the whole 500 miles on one tank for the 4x2 V6...what are you guys getting with the V8 4x2 or 4x4 on a tank?

Thanks!!

Re: How many miles on one tank?

4x4 V6 on my road trip would return a over 450 miles on a tank (I didn't run it until dry or even until the "feed me" notice came up). I expect it will take a while to really get worn in and return the best mileage. IMO, 500 miles on a tank once broken all the way in on even a 4x4 is doable- 25 gallons multiplied by 23mpg (realistic if you keep it to a modest amount of exceeding the speed limit) is right at 575 miles. Personally, I don't like running the tank down that low, but the thing can keep going long enough that you need to pee anyway, so you may as well fill it up.

Re: How many miles on one tank?

It isn't good to run a tank too low; the electric fuel pump inside the tank uses the fuel as a coolant so if you run too low too often, you shorten the life of that pump. Newer gas tank pump design reduce the impact (keeping that last but of fuel close to the pump), but when the gauge is on "E" and you get a warning, I'd recommend filling up.
