Welcome! Don't worry about gas mileage, if we did we would be driving smart cars!

My 09 Hemi gets the same mileage as my old 4.0 Cherokees get. I've been a Jeep owner all of my adult life and I have found that Jeeps generally will get 12-16 in town and 18-22 on the highway.

Its a Jeep thing! If you want better mileage get a prius.

Ha! My Jeep averages 9 MPG in DC and 12 MPG while driving on the highway. I blame it on my new BF Goodrich Rugged Terrain tires though. It's a good thing I do not drive that often since I live in DC. Welcome to the Commander family!
