When can we expect better fuel mileage?
 
When can we expect better fuel mileage? I was disappointed to hear there wasn't much of a step forward when it comes to fuel efficiency in the WK2s.

Sorry to say if you want fuel economy a 5000lbs Jeep shouldn't be your 1st choice. That being said I was impressed that Car and Driver observed 19 mpg on their test of a 3.6 powered Laredo X. Factor in that, in the same issue they tested the new four cylinder Buick Regal and they only averaged 22 mpg.

You are talking about a 2.5 ton brick on wheels! The only real chance at respectable mileage would be a diesel and Jeep has never been able to figure out how to do that in a way that the average Jeep owner would be willing to accept.

After your 1st oil change you should start seeing better gas mileage then what you have. I always change the oil on a new engine at 2K miles.

Its better when is new to change the oil earlier then usual, just to get out the fine particles and possible tiny metal debris and such from being a new engine that may be in there..
