Gas Usage Opinion
So, my average MPG counter says 15.9 average mpg, but I seem to be getting crappier gas mileage than usual. I know Jeeps drink that stuff but it seems like I have been using more gas since after I got it back from the dealer. Like it seems as though the actual gas gauge falls alot when I crank it up. Does anyone else have this issue, and or know hot to fix it?

Re: Gas Usage Opinion
its winter time, you will always get worse MPGs in the winter. 15.9 is not bad for an overall average 02-05-2011 11:56 AM

I also noticed mileage dropoff in the winertime. The dealer told me the same thing. Worst gas mileage in the winertime.

Depends on where you live; if in the rust belt, winter gas formulations have a higher concentration of ethanol, which makes mpg worse than summer blends.

Blame it on the mtbe which is added to our gasoline from oct.1st to apr , per our federal adds oxy to our mixture to clean up our air but adds deadly carbon monoxide...go reduces our mileage figures???????????

That figure seems entirely reasonable to me! :)
