I live about 90 miles from the nearest airport. I had an opportunity yesterday to take the wife to the airport to catch a plane to go visit our son and his family for Veteran's Day. I decided to take our 2018 Sport JLU. We only had 1300 miles on it since we bought it during Labor Day weekend and I saw this as a chance to see how well it does driving longer distances than around town. I was very impressed with the handling and ride for a 2 hour trip up and back. I average 25.8 going up and 26.4 coming back. I bought the Jeep for fun, but having this kind of gas mileage will make it more enjoyable to take on trips.

Nice, and in the summer it will probably do even better.

I have the 3.6 liter with ESS and 8 speed Automatic. MPG around town varies from 15 to 17 mpg depending on my daily commute. I only live 3 miles from work so the longer the drive, the better the mpg around town.
