Re: WK2 Hemi vs V6 MPG Compilation (results inside)

I'm all over the place but I have a couple variables thrown in. V6 but have MT 32's on.

With a 2.5hr trip I took last week I got around 21mpg all highway around 70mph the whole way. I live 1.2 miles from my house and top speed is around 30mph and just driving around the neighborhood and to work in back in two weeks I got 11mpg. I wonder if I would actually do better with the V8 overall with the extra power to get me off the line.

Re: WK2 Hemi vs V6 MPG Compilation (results inside)

I keep extremely accurate records from day 1 of my purchase (2-14-11). On April 2nd I got 19.96 mpg (hwy) going from Tyler to Ft Worth and back. My YTD average mpg which is 75% Hwy is 17.1 mpg. My worst tank mpg was 13.45 mpg (it was my second fill up). I completely fill up each time and I have 14,000 miles with 41 fill ups. I have the 5.7 Hemi

Re: WK2 Hemi vs V6 MPG Compilation (results inside)

I just did my first gas fill-up after two weeks of ownership with the V6.
420 miles total
250 hwy miles
170 local, stop and go miles
20 gallons
21 avg. mpg
This coincides almost exactly with the EVIC reading. I have no complaints.

Re: WK2 Hemi vs V6 MPG Compilation (results inside)

It's a nice feeling knowing that even after 10 years, my WJ is still pretty close at the average! V6 hitting 17.2 avg MP/G
