21.6 Mpg!

I got an actual measured 21.6 mpg at 60 mph over a flat 10-mile course yesterday. That's with 2 adults and a kid, lots of luggage and gifts, and the big roof basket on top.



The catch? I had a constant 20-30mph tailwind the entire way. I would hate to think what my mileage would have been going the other direction.

Which engine were you running with? I too manage to get about 22.3mpg on my HEMI...no tail/head wind, with only two passengers. Good to see ya saving some lead from your gas pedal .

I can get 21mpg in mine going 60mph too. 4.7 4x4, but there aren't many places that I go that driving 60 is a good option. I'm not driving 60 on a 75mph interstate, it isn't safe.

I know...right. I live in Atlanta...if you're aren't doing at least 75, you'll be run over.

I don't think my HEMI even has the lighting to make a "2" in the appropriate place.

RIP - Silver '06 Limited; 5.7 Hemi; 2" TerraFlex Lift; 255/70R17 Bridgestone Dueler REVOS, Horizontal Inclinometer, Signal Frog Antenna Ball, Surco Safari 50"x50" Roof Rack, GetLost4x4 bumper, Bulldog 9k Winch, GetLost4x4 Rock Rails - (should have added a snorkel)
