Re: My thoughts after a small road trip
I took a trip home to MI (2000 miles round trip) and I average 16.5mpg fully loaded (2 adults, 1 child, 3 dogs, and the soft luggage bag on top of the roof at 80mph. Two days ago, I went on a 300 mile roudn trip for work. On the way there, 80mph empty (just me in the car) 19.1mpg. On the way back, 80mph, 6x12 enclosed trailer with bout 1200lbs in it, 11mpg.
Overall I am very pleased, I didn't even know the trailer was back there most of the times. (It was a U-Haul trailer for reference).
The MPG has impressed me since I got this. It will only get better, they always do.
FYI, I have 3000 miles logged so far on the new Cherokee.
2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland, 5.7L Hemi, 730N, Offroad Package II
