Depends on where you live, how you drive, and if you pay close attention to maintenance. Nothing more.

Not exactly true. You could get a X in 2010 with the HEMI :)

YOUR GETTING ALMOST 20?? that seems to good to be true!

my 3.7 gets something like 13 or 14 mpg

and for my driving, lets just say my girlfriend says i drive like a granny lol and i maintain the jeep obsessively, so i know my fluids are good

Have you changed your Spark Plugs? Checked your Air Filter?

I change my air filter pretty much every other oil change so im sure its clean.

But now that i think about it, i haven't done sparks in a while. i was waiting till i hit 60000 miles to to do my sparks.. so might be it. im at 56000 so maybe i should just do it a little early and see if it helps..
