Hi all,

our patriot makes about 25 mpg with a mix of city and highway. Living in Denver, the higher altitude might bring the mpg down...wish there was a turbo version.

You could always strap a blower on it ... probably not something you really want to do ... but it might look cool. Then you would have to some how change the computer to handle the variable value timing and all that fancy electronic stuff.

I like the older engines for boosting power. A racing rebuild kit, a blower or supercharger, and then some high octane fuel would make a lot of power ... now its computer programmers and hackers. I guess I'm getting too old. You can't even turn up a diesel engine anymore without a computer. On my dad's old 4 and 6 cylinder tractors all you needed was a service manual, a screw driver and some guts.

There is a turbo version, just not for the Patriot. 285 HP and 260 lbs torque.

Wish they had it in the Patriot.

25 mpg highway on a 4x4 Patriot with 5-speed manual. I probably could get better mileage if I didn't drive at 80 mph with 4 skis strapped to the roof. I'm keeping the lead foot of the gas nowadays and I probably will get better mileage in the summer.

2007 Patriot Ltd, 4x4, CVT

Just did a weekend trip to LA from Sacramento...400 miles each way. Going on flat freeway we got about 26-27, going over the grapevine (lots of hills) got about 23-24.

Not bad for a brand new vehicle, everything still stock. After the trip we have about 1200 total miles on the patriot.

I got 31 with my 5 speed on a recent highway trip by keeping it at 60 using the cruise control.

I was getting about 39-40mpg up to last week in the CRD. But I've changed the Pat in the last week with the RRO lift and some Cooper ATR's so it might change. I hope it doesn't change it much but what can you do.

Hi there,

Yes it is the diesel version.
It is a 2.0L VW sourced engine with a 6sp manual.
Diesel cost here is approx US$6/gallon.

Jeep Green Crd Limited, RRO Lifted, TX3400 & Coopers.
It's a Patriot thing, you wouldn't understand.

wow. sweet

2.4 CVT2 4x4 here, worst we got was 22 cruising around tourist traps on vacation at 20 MPH with tons of stop and go. 25 average around town here (mostly back roads), 28 combo town/highway, 32 was the best (almost all highway).

all these figures are with the AC on 90% of the time.

only 16 mpg??

hi all, new to this site.

well I just bought an 08' patriot a month ago. I have filled the tank 4 times already at $50. a pop. I do the math and all I get is 16 mpg's. Is there something wrong with my pat? I only get around 220 miles per tank 220/13.5=16.???

Part of the reason I bought it was for the 25 mpg. What am I doing wrong? anyy info appreciated thanks.

I see that you have the 4X2 version. Which transmission CVT or 5 speed? You should be getting more than that. Are you running the A/C alot, stop and go traffic? Is it taking a full 13.5 gal or are you filling up when the low gas light goes off? That's at about 11.5 gal which would be 19.1 mpg, better but not quite where it should be.
