Re: Hemi Gas Mileage?

Haven't seen anyone post about towing anything. I have two jetskis weighting about 2400lbs and with my '06 4.7L @ 65-70mph I would get about 10-13 mpg. Hope I get more on the highway with the Hemi. ALso how does it pull a trailer for those who have trailers to pull?

Re: Hemi Gas Mileage?

15-19 OVERALL. 3500 on the odo. noticed the mileage improved slightly after 2k miles.
about the same mileage as the 2010 liberty we traded in on the gc and it was a sick pup as far as power.

btw don't really care about the mileage cuz i love the hemi!!

Re: Hemi Gas Mileage?

11.5-12.5 per tank with a combination of 50% highway and 50% city.

Re: Hemi Gas Mileage?

I drive a 150 mile round trip to the DEN airport regularly (V8 Hemi). The drive is mostly highway and I start at 7000', go to 5200', and back. 78mph for two-thirds and 65mph for the rest.


21 mpg with Latitude Tour tires with regular unleaded which is 85 Octane in Colorado.

Same trip with LTX M/S 2s ... 22.5 mpg and regular unleaded mixed with 25 percent "mid-grade", 87 Octane. The second trip also had a little less traffic.

I've read plenty of debate on 85 Octane gas in Colorado. The Jeep runs fine on it, but it appears I get a little bump in mpg with the "mid-grade" 87 Octane. Many gas stations in Colorado only carry 85 and 91, but I'll be sticking with the 87 Octane when I can.

Also got 16.5 mpg towing a 2200lb trailer at 65mph on a trip last weekend.

Regardless of the Octane debate, I'm VERY HAPPY with the highway fuel economy.

I was getting about 13.5 all short trips, but now that my commute is about 25-30 miles one way I'm getting just over 20, sometimes if I don't hit any lights I'm getting 21+. very nice.

Re: Hemi Gas Mileage?

13.5 to 15 depending on how much highway travel I have. Probably and even 50% city/highway.

....but my right foot is encased in lead too, so that doesn't help...

Re: Hemi Gas Mileage?

22.4 mpg on the way home today via primary road and the interstate. Cruise control is a big help.
