compass vrs patriot mpg

thinking of buying one of these for long commutes to work and putting my xj 14mpg xj in the garage to serve as a toy instead of DD... not really familiar with either of these cars, what are the pros and cons of each?

The Compass may have a slight edge on average mpg but the highest was actually a Patriot. 5 speed will do 2-3 mpg better than the CVT, again, on the average. It's a hard call on FWD vs $x$, you would think the FWD but I just don't recall too many comparisons on that.

Kinda rolling hills in your area? I was born in Van Buren ah, a few years ago, and that's what I remember. Any combination could do you well. Expect between 21 - 29 depending on what you may buy and your driving habits.

That's the high lights in the first 8 pages, lots of tidbits scattered through out and more further back.

My average over the last 20k miles is 25.3 mpg. I live in the coastal mountains so I have several thousand feet of elevation change each day.

Yeah I have a lot of sitting around and sitting around with the ac on because of the florida heat my mpg go up when I stop having to idle around to keep from boiling to death in the florida heat.
