Gas Mileage with a 5 speed

If you have a 4wd Patriot with the 5 speed what kinda gas mileage are you getting? I am not a fan of the CVT but like the Patriot other than that. I am not sure how much more money I want to put in my ZJ.

I have the 5 speed 4X4 and I often get 30 mpg on the highway but I don't keep track of city driving because too many variables.

I ran 2 300 mile trips with my 5 speed 2wd MK this week and got 26.4mpg on both trips. They were pretty much all highway with the cruise control set to 75mph.

I can get over 30mpg if I spend more time on 55mph roads but the last two trips were all highway.

Typical overall is 25 to 27. I've never gotten less than 24.5. Best I've gotten is 32.
