Re: Pleasantly surprized 3.6L mileage

Agree with using cruise whenever possible, keep tires inflated (I run at 36-38 psi), and "drive gentle". It is just a lifestyle that the WK2 encourages. OTOH I do have a toy that begs you to Stand On It (from the book, not the movie).

Is that a 50% city and 50% driveway? If so, that is fantastic! My MPG drops like a brick when my jeep is in the driveway. Sorry, I haven't had all my coffee yet and my sense of humor is warped anyway.

Re: Pleasantly surprized 3.6L mileage

that is 50/50 driving.

And coming from a Subaru driven with over 400hp for many years, I love my Jeep v6 and what if offers. I question the logic of the TCU sometimes, but since upgrading to a beefer tire, it seems to counter act the TCU and hold gear longer.
