I have an interesting quandary that I would like some help in understanding.
I have a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a V-8.
Recently, I spent a month working in Vail, CO (yeah, I know, such a rough life) and I was getting better MPG than back here in the Wisconsin.
My daily commute from Hudson, WI to Edina, MN is about 40 miles one way. I do minimal city driving, and I try and keep it under 75 on the freeways. I have been averaging about 15 MPG in the winter and almost 16 in the summer.
We did a lot of driving from Vail to Breckenridge and even to Denver a couple of times. I averaged 17.2 mpg even with all the elevation changes.
Anyone have any ideas?
I am trying to convince my girlfriend that we need to move out there to do some more tests.
