Miles Per Dollar

How many miles per dollar does it cost you. If I drove anything but a Jeep(fun factor),I would look for a rope and a block of dry ice.

I don't feel so bad about my mileage now getting 6.40 miles per dollar. But we also have some of the cheapest gas down here at $2.40 a gallon. I guess having all the big oil refineries at our back door is good for something

Trust me A LOT of people are selling their jeeps!!You can find a cool TJ nowadays with only 5000 euros whereas a couple of years ago they couldn't be had for less than 13-14 k.euros.The gas was 0.78 per Lt and now is 1.72 per Lt
As for the diesel options you can have these only in the JKs but with all the depression who can afford to buy them anyhow.TJ never had a diesel option

You are very lucky guys
