hows my mpg
 
I have a 2011 wk2 laredo. It gets about 14 mpg, I do a lot of heavy acceleration and redline it sometimes. how much should I be getting?

Based on your driving style, You should be getting between 10 & 12 MPG. :rolleyes:

Is that a 6 or an 8 cyl? I get 14 on my V8 and am superrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr happy, lol with the way I drive

modest expectations is the key to over achievement

with my 2014 v6 I can get 30 mpg highway (60 mph) and 20 mpg city.

its a v6, I guess im making up for the lack of power by beating up the engine

With my 14 v8 I'm avg 19.4 with 55% city driving i can't imagine what it'd be if it wouldn't have been in the shop for awhile getting fixed😄

We're averaging 16.3 in our '14 V6 4x2 in 99% city driving never using Eco mode. Have not had the Jeep on a highway road trip yet; first will be about 250 miles in the fall. I'll have to remember to reset the mileage computer when we leave.

Are you guys resetting the mpg computer at each fill up or does it reset itself or is it just an overall avg? On the lexus it has a continous one with overall average and another mpg that resets at each fill up.
