Liberty Gas Mileage
Hi everyone. I was just wondering what you are seeing gas mileage wise in your libertys. I searched many forums and couldn't find a good answer. I am deciding between a Patriot or a Liberty. I really like both of them but I don't really like the CVT transmission in the Patriot:thumbdown:, and I don't want the manual either. So I am sort of leaning towards the Liberty. Please post the MPG you are seeing in your libertys.

Lifted on 245/75 A/T Tires i get Mixed Highway and City 18.1MPG and straight Highway for the whole tank is 22.2MPG

Ok. Yea i guess your right. With gas prices most likely going to rise again I want to see what I can expect from a Liberty. Either a newer one or an older one.

CRD is the only Liberty that gets reasonable Gas Milage. The Liberty is up high, weights around 5K Pounds and is the shape of a Bread Box so mileage is going to be bad unless you go CRD

Mine gets a squeak above 18 in the summer. Now that it's winter, and with the winter-blend gasoline, I'm getting about 16 and a half.

freeway on a trip I can get 20 at 70 plus mph, thats lifted, 265-75s etc around town maybe 14

bone stock 4X4 Limited: 20 mpg highway, 16 city. It sucks [gas].

Yeah, I just got an "04 4x4 about 1 month ago, and was rather surprised at the crappy gas mileage myself. I'm getting between 16.5-17.5 MPG, and it's mostly highway mileage. If you're looking for an economical compact 4x4, the Liberty is not the way to go.

That being said, the Liberty is definitely built a bit heavier and is more capable (towing, off-roading) than your typical CRV or Escape.

average about 15 city/21 hwy with a lifted 4,600 lb built up Liberty.

Stock, saw about 17 city/22, sometimes 23 hwy

Basically, about as good as ThunderbirdJunkie's '01 Exploder 5.0L V8. Not as noisy and fast, but it also isn't a terd off road

i run full synthetic fluids, axles and engine, not trans. i get 23mpg on the highway and about 19-19.5 around town. with 245/70/16 Destination at's clevis lift and double rear spring isolators, about 100 pounds to recovery gear in the back.

I've been averaging between 18/19 mpg on my 2009.

jeepkid60 12-09-2009 05:14 PM

Mine has been steady 21mpg and this week I believe it's been higher than 24 this week, so far my wife and I put in the same amount of gas and she has burned more gas than myself(She has a dodge Stratus 2.4L) and I have a 05 Liberty 3.7L and drove over 135 miles since monday and I still have a half a tank from 3/4 starting on Sunday afternoon. She's on a 1/4 tank! I'll repost my mileage friday when I fill up my tank.

Sounds like that ol' 2.4 needs some plugs
