Gas mileage check

I did a hard check on mileage and got 15.48. The car said 15.4. So that is pretty close.

god kills a kitten everytime you refer to your Jeep as a ... and while i'm all for controlling the kitten population of the world... senseless massacring of kittens is completely unnecessary.

just call it a Jeep

I apologize for calling it that. Funny how I correct everyone that calls it that to me.

only the second fill up on my 2012 JKUS auto, 3.73 still running stock, and 17.5 seems to be the norm. break in is not really done yet, so take it as initial information only.

still, 17.5 is pretty good when you consider the extra weight of all that water on my passenger floorboard.

I keep a spreadsheet on all 3 of my vehicles, and every vehicle I've owned in the last 5 years. Helps to provide data to people thinking to buy when they are researching. Amazingly my 2012 is getting better then what it is rated at. Some people are data geeks

My SRT8 GC gets 12 MPG, I keep track of that too. The King of gas guzzling Jeeps.

I think the CPU is more accurate given the difficulty in filling up to the same level each time. But, they should be relatively close.

The EVIC number is very close in my 2012, way better than my other Chrysler vehicles, but still a tad high. They must do it to make you feel a bit better if you don't check it manually.
