Road trip & a nice surprise ...

Last week, my wife & I took our Jeep SRT8 on it's first major road trip to Annapolis, MD & Virginia Beach, VA. It was a 1500 mile round trip.

After 500 miles, we stopped in Annapolis.
Here's a pic of our SRT8 with the El Galeon Andalucia in Annapolis. This is the ship used in NBC's show "Crossbones".



Then after another 250 miles, we arrived in Virginia Beach.
Here's our Jeep by a mural on the Flagship Inn in VB. Note how clean the wheels appear after 750 miles. Those ceramic brake pads are great.



Now for the surprise. I tried to hold the Jeep at 70-75 MPH for most of the trip. According to the Jeep's computer, we averaged 11.8 L/100 KM (approx. 20 MPG (US)). My 2011 5.7L GC Overland averaged 11.7 L/100 KM on the same trip a couple of years ago. I was surprised the fuel consumption for the 6.4 L motor was about the same as my 5.7.
