Yesterday we went 475 miles and had to fill up 3 times (damn 20 gallon tank) went from an elevation on 560m to 1100m and averaged 9.6mpg, not bad at all. The first leg we averaged 8.0 and then the Jeep seemed to figure something out at it went way up. But i pulled into the first gas station with 1 gallon of fuel left!

Also forgot found out that the gauge and computer is set to give about a 50 mi (not towing) reserve. Found that out in West Texas almost the hard way.

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee V6 and SLX195RB

We picked our new SLX195rb at Rick.s RV in Joliet and went to Indiana near the Jayco plant to visit the Amish quilt stores and get a test run.

I filled up before heading home and averaged 14 over relatively flat terrain with mixed but not high winds. Part 2 lane but mostly interstate. Normal mileage on that type of travel is 18 with no trailer.

On the way to Gettysburg, got 10.2, and a little better on the return trip at 10.7. May have been the different routes. (Someone didn't follow the GPS all the way, on the way there.....not sayin' who!)
