Highway Mileage

I am taking a road trip from NY to Daytona for speedweeks and am debating whether to take my 14 Limited. What are you guy getting for highway mileage? I have not taken the truck on a long trip yet

Re: Highway Mileage
Since its down hill to FL, about 25MPG. Drive back home around 23MPG. That's all assuming you have a V6. Take it.

If you have a V8 then subtract 80% :D

( poor humor, I know)

NASCAR will mandate your gas mileage. If you claim any less your favorite drivers will lose points. Remember its no longer racing but racing entertainment. Lets hope the France family and NASCAR dont take over motorcycle road racing in this country and f it up like they have sportscar racing.

I average over 26 mpg in the summer as long as I don't go over 65-70 mph and there are not a lot of short trips. Winter in MN is not good for the fuel economy. Between the fuel blend and cold weather the mpg drops down to the 21 mpg range.

Re: Highway Mileage
Winter - around 22 mpg. Summer - around 30 mpg. EcoDiesels drop milage running the winter blend fuels - also, with over 30 days of sub zero temps in Minnesota this winter, it is killing the milage. Much better milage when temps above zero.

Re: Highway Mileage
MPG should be in the low-mid 20s. What's your other choice?

Re: Highway Mileage

Re: Highway Mileage
Take the GC since you dont know what the weather will be like for the drive back.

Re: Highway Mileage
Take the Altima, and keep the miles off the Jeep...or better yet, rent a vehicle for the trip.

In 2012, I rented a 2013 Altima (2.5L) and drove from Boston to NYC and back. I averaged about 31 mpg...and didn't put those 750 miles on my STI at the time. $80 rental charge plus gas for the three days I had it...can't beat that!

Re: Highway Mileage
@ 55mph in my 5.7 Hemi, I can get around 25-26 mph, @ 70 mph Im about 22 mpg, and 75 mph im at about 19 mpg... These are providing Im not hitting a head which case, @ 70 mph, the mileage is around 17-18....

This is on my hemi so the smaller engines would theoretically do better?
