Positive Energy Activates Constant Elevation- PEACE
I was pleasantly surprised to notice on a recent interstates trip that cruising (not cruise control, but at steady speed) between 50 and 60 mph (don't remember exact mph), the instant mpg was showing 25 to 35 mph on flat ground.
But at usual keeping-up-with-the-traffic interstate speeds in the 70's, also on flat ground, usually it shows instant mpg of mid-teens to very low 20's on flat ground.
Passing or climbing on interstate knocks instant mpg down to high single digits or barely above 10 mpg.
This is with 10% ethanol fuel, Eco always on, 4x4 in auto. V6 3.6 liter gas Pentastar, 8 speed automatic, '15 Overland, 20" wheels with OEM Forteras at about 40 psi cold (dealer psi recommendation for the winter).
So far, with less than 2,000 miles, I'm averaging 17.9 mpg (my calculations), 17.5 mpg (the Jeep's displayed average in DID/EVIC).
Best average was 22.7 mpg on an all interstate tankful.
Worst average was 14.4 mpg local driving, often in heavy snow conditions with lots of idling and 4x4 in snow mode.
I should add that I really like the way Jeep implemented the DID/EVIC fuel economy gauge view.
