Ive gotten as high as 38 with my CRD. Long highway day at 60 mph. Ive gotten as low as 24 all city driving. Average around 30-32 is normal.

Yes it is a CRD. And the fuel mileage beats everything else in the stable.

Please post the MPG you are seeing in your libertys.
Thanks.
Have 08 Liberty with 35000 miles getting average of 19.3 in town; 25-26highway driving 65 to 70, JimD35

I like how the CRD people brag about how many miles per gallon, but yet per gallon diesel is more expensive to buy so who is really winning.
Plus if I have to drive 55 , with the mirrors folded in, holding my breath, not using AC to get that then is it worth it in the long run?
just saying....

here you go cruising up the road, 32 inch tires, 4 inch lift, roof rack with 4 lights across, and everything that just kills your mileage !
79 MPH, 2225 RPMs 21.1 MPG
Just think if I folded in my mirrors and drove 55

2008 stock Liberty, 25K miles, 17-19 mpg short commute/suburban driving, 20-22 on the highway, and in the mountains. I am a careful driver, no lead foot. I originally was going to buy a Patriot but the Liberty is much more strongly built which I need for those weekend trips to the backcountry. Last but not least, Liberty interior appealed much better to my wife.

From what I've read. it looks like 2012 may be the last year for the Liberty (as well as Patriot and Compass). Sounds like Fiat plans to introduce a line of small, under-powered Euro-type SUVs in their place and leave the Grand Cherokee as the only full-sized Jeep SUV in the lineup. Unlikely they'll invest much in the KK before killing it, so you'd better get one while they're still available. Odd thing, here in Phoenix the Jeep dealers don't seem to be getting many deliveries of new Libertys, and in odd colors at that. Lousy selection of new KKs available here.

Just because you have a problem with it doesn't mean its bragging! I drive 60 not 55. Im not in a hurry. I use AC. As to diesel being more expensive, here in the Seattle area its around the same to 15 cents more than gas. But the real ticket is making bio diesel in your garage for less than 1.00 a gallon!

Beat that gassers guys!

I get 15.7 MPG on a 2010 Liberty. I only do around town driving right now with no highway miles (recently retired). so I do a lot of idling, stopping for stop signs and red lights. I only checked it once and will be checking it soon again.

Went to the cabin over the holiday 22.9 MPG on the way up. Put the boat in had to use 4X4 to get out of the lake. Only got 20.3 on the way home, then I realized I left it in 4X4 for 250miles. oh well.

^ Dave B isnt that bad for the Libby... or is it just bad for the tires?

I was wondering because in a nasty rain storm i would like to flip it into 4-hi but i read that we are only supposed to use the 4x4 on loose surfaces.
