Question What CITY (only) gas mileage are you getting with your 2011 Grand Cherokee? (V8 only)

Similar to the highway poll, just curious about what others are getting.

I know I have a V8 and don't care about mileage, I'm just curious to see if my numbers are falling in line with other WK2 Hemi owners. Like others have said before, if their numbers are way off it could mean there's a problem especially if they aren't particularly hard on the vehicle. Cold weather conditions also affect the overall fuel mileage but still some days are warm and some days cold so I just want to know what your numbers are.



I get 10.5 MPG all city with 9 MPG being my worst after driving it hard and having fun in a snow covered parking lot.

My average after I reset the monitor is now 10.5 MPG +/- .5 MPG and holding.

I like to see the results as well. I'm not participating in the polls, though, because my driving is mixed city/highway and I'm sure all the hills I'm in do not help with the #s either. But, in case you wanted to know, my last fillup avg'd to be 11.5mpg.

I usually get mid 12's when driving normal for me (aggressive). If I take it easy I have gotten 14+ on a tank of gas.

12 seems to be the number so far. My EVIC currently says 11 mpg at this time. I also forgot to mention that there are hills that I climb daily as well. It has also warmed up a bit and I'm doing fewer remote starts and so on. So I guess in short...if you are doing all city driving, you should be hovering around 12 MPG +/- 1MPG. Anything worse means you either drive to hard, it's cold out, your using winter blend fuel, or a combination of them all.

I forget what the hemi rating was for city mpg.

The lowest I have seen my average is an astounding 7.5mpg. That is driving in the city of Chicago only (no highway, lots of traffic) with a slightly heavy foot. I'm not complaining though, the V8 is super fun.
