I don't think that's even close to possible on any WJ or older Jeep even if you only drove downhill with a wind at your back, it's just not in the cards for the 4.0. If I'm not mistaken the oem rating was 15 in town and 17 highway. You're claiming 9 mpg better and a vehicle at about the ten year mark.

The brand new 3.6 WK is only rated at 17 city and 23 highway. If you hover over the little blue cross you will see that's for the 4x2 as well, not the heavier 4x4. http://www.jeep.com/en/2013/grand_ch...apability/mpg/

Probably using the overhead console's numbers.

I didn't use my iPhone mpg app for about four months and then just for the heck of it did a tank fill without resetting and I was getting 43 mpg, no joke!

I highly doubt that.

That goes to show you the overhead is not correct. It's posts like yours that makes people think there is something wrong when they are only getting 14 mpg. Heck, I'd be happy if I even made it to 16 mpg!

On long flat trips I've had it up to 20-21 but that's doing 55-60. In the city its about 13-14. I didn't buy it for gas mileage so I don't really care, but it better get around +/- 400 miles per tank on highway trips. I hate stopping for fuel every 200 miles.

I've noticed a significant difference between going the speed limit and going slightly faster... there's a noticeable difference between 65mph and 70mph.


That said I had gotten 400+ miles on a fairly flat road trip in the mid west, so doing the math in my head made overhead console seem not far off. But after googling the tank capacity of the Jeep I now see how wrong that was oh well, chalk that up to uneducated consumer.
