How much are you paying at the pump to fill up?

Hey guys and gals,

I just wanted to see how much gas was across the country and how much are you forking out at the pump. I've had the vehicle for about 2 weeks now and been content with the way this thing consumes gas. I've heard many WK owners complain about their vehicle being a gas guzzling machine and had the question mark when I got our wk2. However, thus far its been pretty good. I must say though, the V6 is equivalent to our GX470's V8 as far as gas consumption goes. None the less, all the attractiveness make up for the gas lol. I wouldn't drive anything else.

Anyway, filled up with 87 @ $3.99 from empty and paid $72.

Re: How much are you paying at the pump to fill up?

I have been running the tank pretty low so in the $70's. Last time was $79 @ $3.59/gal. I have had some gas pump shock, but it is attributed to the larger gas tank. I had a 2000 JGC previously and when it was low it took 18 or 19 gallons. The WK2 has a larger tank (24 gal) so I am easily putting in at least 22 gallons. Therefore easily another $10/tank. All thinks equal then no real difference.

Next week will be in a 2011 Prius costing about $35. To fill up. Last me almost 2 weeks. LOL

My plan is to pay it off in 3 years and get a WK2 SRT for play time.

My wife filled up the other day. About $75. She didn't realize how big the tank was. Compared to her previous car (mini van), the tank it much bigger.

Re: How much are you paying at the pump to fill up?

Been doing about $75 to $79 once a week.
Last night it cost me $79.00 to fill up at 3.69 a gallon for 20 gallons.

I usually take it down to just under a 1/4 tank then fill up.
Did this with my H3 (19 to 20 mpg on her) for 6 years and each week was about 18 gallons. The Jeep is averaging 20 gallons each week.

For the next few days I am going to be light on the gas just to see what I can do to the MPG. Last week I was heavy on the gas as I am really enjoying the HEMI .
