$60 to fill up Jeep liberty

I have an app on my phone for cheap gas, just enter your zip code and it will list the cheapest gas stations within a 10 mile radius. Found one for $2.99 a gallon.
Filled up to my surprise $60

If it was $5 a gallon, it will cost $85 to fill up.

The electric vehicle will be an alternative source at that price.

We have an indian rez here I go to for gas. My Liberty=$40

On a side note, are you able to 'click' the pump untill your tank is full? If I go anywhere past the 1st 'click' I get overflow. Just wondering if it's my Liberty or all Liberty's?

Yep, first click I stopped.What is the price for a gallon of unleaded regular at that indian rez? cause $40 will get me 3/4 tank.

Why I fill up when I get to 3/4 tank,still using the same amount just does not feel as bad when I see $20 at a time,just a mind trick is all.

But I did not buy a Jeep for gas mileage and I'm loving my 10mpg's(winter city driving),would not trade it for anything.

There is a reason for my bad mpg's,it's called 2000lbs of extra weight and a 120lbs right foot.

eh it is what it is. Im already reducing my driving. Always fill up at a half tank so I feel like Im paying less. Cant stand when I fill it up with my friend who has a Mazda 3 and theyll be like "Oh its only $30 to fill up my car too." And Im like "Yeah thats less half a tank.'' -___-

if you mean something like the Chevy Volt then you'll have a driving range of about 40-miles before you need to re-charge. need to drive farther than 40-miles? then you'll still be burning that $5 gas. and you'll be needing electricity to re-charge those batteries. that ain't free either. many of the power grids in the country can barely keep up with demand now, especially in the summer months when everyone runs their AC. what do you 'spose is gonna happen when we all start plugging in our electric cars? besides, you knew...or should've known...that the liberty did not sip gas when you bought one. we didn't buy any of our jeeps for their fuel efficiency.

Sadly some just do not have a clue and think it should get as good as a crv or rav4 but a Liberty is not even in the same class as those car based crossovers.

A Jeep will take you anywhere you want just don't pass a gas station.

A fitting bumper sticker for all Jeeps..............

There was a report on news last night stating that at the present rate of growth of China, India, and USA, gasolione will be over $5.00/gal by 2012. This was from CEO of Shell Oil. I think the number of additional new vehicles in China this year was 18 million.

As of 1.2.2011, the national average gas price is only $1.78 away from $5 a gallon of gas

I fill up at Sam's Club every week and I put over 15 gallons in this week and it just bumped $40. I am getting over 17 mpg all the time and usually better in the warmer months. I've got 36K on my 08 Limited 4x4.

I never go past the first click when the pump shuts off. That keeps my mileage calculations consistent. The fuel gage always registers way above FULL filling up that way.

Yea, My Liberty does much better than the V8 in the old GCL I had, I'll get about 17mpg with a mix of hwy and stop/go. I'm happy with that I use the fill up halfway trick too

Whats weird is in this area, one county up from me is usually 10 to 20 cents cheaper than were I live and work.
So I usually head up north for something (like sams club trips) and fill up when I'm there.

I couldn't use an elec. car other than for store runs and work. And they're close enough it's just simply not even worth considering.

I'm way to active in other things that require over a 40mile range
