Thanks for the responses.
Tires are stock 16s and gear ratio is 3.21 standard.
I realize that for highway driving my mileage is not that bad however in the city it doesn't compare to some other friends of mine who drive Wranglers so i figure something must be a little off.

You haven't mentioned if the tires are stock, what air pressure you are running, what axle ratio you have, etc. But constant city driving does take a toll on fuel economy. So does winter gas.

|GPA21||Thanks, but regardless I get about 21 L/100 Kms (10.5 MPG) all stock with good driving habits so something must be wrong.|

|Syntackz||As far as I know the DTE calculates based on your past driving habits. So it will change and evolve over time depending on how you drive.|

Has anyone else experienced MPG like this ?
I also notice now that when I view my DTE gauge that it goes at pretty much double the speed that it should at all times. I.E. if I drive 5 km it will go down by 10 km.
Any help/advise is appreciated.

I bought a 2011 from Toronto as well. North York Chrysler actually. I live north of the city. Jeep is stock minus I changed the tires to cooper discover at's. I'm getting around 17.5L/100km.
When I first bought it in October, I was getting around 14L/100km. I've put about 4000km since then, and changed the oil and oil filter.
The tires aren't much larger then what was on there when I bought it. I'm hoping the eco doesn't get much worse without change...

2011 Wrangler JK Bad Mileage Problem
I purchased a 2011 Jeep Wrangler JK new near Toronto in April of 2011 and have had horrific gas mileage since it left the dealership (especially in city driving in Toronto).
My Jeep is a 2011 2 Door Sport w/ Auto transmission and averages 300 km a tank (20.6 L /100 KM or 11.4 mpg) generally filled after 62 litres, and now has about 18,000 kilometres on the ODO. Since even when people say they get bad mileage online they are reporting around 13 mpg I know something must be very wrong. I should note that most of my driving is done in City (90%) and when I am only driving highway I can see up to 480-500 kms/tank.
The shop/dealership (which I purchased from) notes that they can't do much for me after doing a fuel consumption test but says that I should now keep accurate track of my mileage per fill-up for the next 5000 kms and then report the problem to Chrysler.
Has anyone here had a mileage problem this bad and dealt with Chrysler to resolve ? I want to make sure I approach this correctly when I speak with them to ensure that I get them to look at it to figure the problem out.
Thanks all, any help would be appreciated.
