Totaled Commander replacement

I bought my second Commander today to replace the one which was totaled December 23, 2015. This is the Limited with Hemi 8 cyl. engine.
Anyone have one that would like to share MPG info with me? Also does anyone know how big of a tire I can put on the 18 inch wheels? I want more height and maybe a little more width. Thanks.

I've got an 06 Hemi, stock everything except a ported and polished throttle body, and I'm running around 11 city, 15 highway. With gentle driving around 60 mph, I can get around 18 highway. Mileage is rough on the hemis.

I tried to put 255/70/18 A/T tires on today. They would not fit, too big, also tried 245/65/18 they would not work either. Had to go with the stock size of 245/60R/18. Bought some cheap ones for now. Thinking about putting a 2 inch lift on in the summer and then some bigger tires.

And them Steelers are going!! They took some casualties in Cinci... it was a hard fought battle. I hope they're ready and able to compete in Denver.
I can't imagine how tough it must be to crawl out of bed the next morning after such a physical game.

I have 106k on the 3.7. I've always managed 12+ city with the upgraded plugs, K&N cai and full synthetic oils. Even cleaned the TB and replaced the sensors. It runs great, no issues anywhere. no complaints... I get around 18 highway.

I have an 08 limited/Hemi and I was averaging 16.4mpg with a 30 mile commute each way to work, 10 miles @ 80mph, 15mi @ 70mph and 5mi in town. With stock tires and gentle throttle. I have recently installed RRO 2.25 lift and 255/70r17 bfg at ko2's. GPS tracks me at about 14.2mpg.
Gas mileage is not the best but I love my Jeep so much I wont drive anything else.
Side note, I had an 07 that got totalled and just had to have another.

Mine is an 06 HEMI 4x4 and I am getting about 12mpg mixed driving. The best I have ever been able to get was 15.7 and that was on a 500 mile trip with the cruise set at about 70mph. I was running a 245-70-17s on mine stock so I am not sure what that translates to in a 18.
