Same here. Though on my long trip in the jeep I got about 23. See my post up above.

Re: POST 2014 V8 MPG's

Update...I live in Minneapolis so a lot of my driving is on the highway but 50% of the time it's stop and go traffic.

Here's my mileage on my current tank of gas...



Here's my overall mileage...

I may be able to get that highway mileage now, when I did my only long trip so far in mine, I was still in the having fun with the HEMI by rapidly accelerating at any excuse. Now that the initial power fun is over, I should gain a few more MPG.

Re: POST 2014 V8 MPG's

I found that using the ACC really helped me keep off the pedal. That and the fact that my wife and 2 kids were in the car and I haven't hooked up my Escort 9500 yet.

Re: POST 2014 V8 MPG's

I have now had my 2014 5.7 for 500 miles. Wow is this thing thirsty!! I have done about 90% city driving and getting under 12 mpg in eco mode. My city driving is basically residential driving on Long Island, so it is not like New York City driving. I cannot say that I am even driving it hard. Just normal acceleration. I do have the A/C on constantly, but even with that under 12 is thirsty. I am hoping this improves...

But of COURSE!!!

I was surprised how much of a difference going sport mode made on mileage in a loop from Lyons to Golden on Peak to Peak.

With ECO mode, at 1600+ miles, I can get just a tad over 18 even driving with the aim to keep the AERO mode on as much as possible except for waving hi to the Frozen Dead Guy.

With ECO mode off, driving at pretty much the same [only moderately crazy] speeds on the same loop, dropped down to about 12 mpg. Tried again, this time flipping the up shift pedal to try to keep it in the higher gears as soon as it would upshift and still couldn't crack 14.

Overall highway and suburban is averaging a surprising 18.5, where I tend to keep it to less than 5-10 over limits for purposes of protecting insurance rates.

For that type of driving turn eco mode off for a tank full and see what happens.

These are actual screen shots, where the mileage is happening at a minimum altitude of about a mile, and a maximum that tops just over 10,000 feet, with a lot above 8,000.

No special brands of gas, Conoco, Shell, whatever at 87 pump rating used.

Not exactly a featherfoot [its a hemi for chrissake] but do have the ability to maintain pretty constant speeds when possible.

A tiny bit of freeway driving, but mostly urban where the speed limits range from 25 to 50 and a goodly number of stoplights, plus a LOT of climbing steep hills and making up the resulting 4 mpg on the return path.

Overall miles is 1654, at average speed of 27.3 mph and 18.7 mpg since it left the depot down by Castle Rock on a freeway trip to Longmont.



Reset the trip odo at 795 miles to see how break-in might be affecting mpg over the same driving patterns--it seems to help even though I refrained from sticking my foot in it or trying sport mode until after about 600 miles had passed.

After break in, 859.4 miles at an average speed of 30.154, getting 19.1 mpg

Rarely stay down at speed limits, but haven't had it over about 90 yet either. Don't rip out of lights or signs, but do hit the gas once it has shifted up a gear or two...

Well, the Hemi with the MDS sure beats the snot out of a Land Rover with the Jag based V8s...

A smooth, steady foot is more important than a lightweight one... I wish the IP showed number of active cylinders, but you can get a pretty good guess by watching the instantaneous mileage display.

Once you enter 8 cylinder mode, the trick is to keep from going full throttle, but get up to cruise speed as fast as that a-hole in the Volvo ahead of you will allow, so it gets back to 4 mode quickly.

I just got Automatic (http://www.automatic.com/) and will post later this week on the mpg I am getting on my drives to and from work. It should be very precise since they are reading all of the data from the Jeeps computer system.

With 2300 miles on it I'm avg 19.5 mpg with 50/50 driving. It'd be better but it was in the shop a few times trying to fix electrical issues. Hopefully they did, think it was a bad ground. My hwy speeds are 70-74
