On a sidenote...I only wish my Patriot would ever do 27.5. The best ive got was 26 going exclusively 45-55 mph.
It was headwind on the way down there, Almost 200 miles of going through mountain highways(up and down mtns) through the blue ridge parkway.. def not a flat highway.. that's why I'm pretty clueless right now as to why my gas mileage was this good.
Also, while driving on winding mountain roads 35-45 I still kept the same mileage.
