I know there are several threads with discussions on fuel enonomy and thought this might help a little. The referenced & linked web site is used by consumers to track fuel mileage and expense.

I track my Commander and my smart HERE.

It would be nice to have more than 2 Commanders here for data collection.

I started tracking my mileage when I put my big tires on, I will get a computer this month and then we will be able to see the true picture and others will have an idea how far off their system reads.

I set mine up for actual mileage instead of trip mileage so I do not have to remember to reset the trip meter. Just write the actual mileage on the top of your receipt each time you fill up until you can get to the computer and enter your information

Why not? I'm waiting for the email so I can complete the reg.

I'm sure my MPG has just dropped... I installed a Surco roof rack.

On edit: now I'm in. For what it's worth, I tried to add the motorcoach. (Like that was going to be on their list of vehicles. ) I did submit the info, so maybe they'll add that.

I'm going to go in and add a few fillups. (Is that a word?) I don't use public gas stations... all my gas (or diesel) is via card lock thru Pacific Pride. I don't wait in line behind lotto ticket pickers and beer buyers. I happen to have a card lock invoice here, and I'll add more later. At least I can post some stats on the fuelly site.

2006, 4.7L, QTII, Toyo M/T 265/70R17 tires, Ultrasport 175 wheels, Rocky Road 2.25'' lift kit, HID off-road lighting, Surco 50x60 roof rack, Foxwing awning.

Alondo, the only time I go inside a gas station is if I have to use the restroom, otherwise I pay at the pump and drive away. Those scratch and sniff lotto ticket people and the 40oz crowd drives me nuts.

Now, I'll have to go home and dig out all my old Pacific Pride invoices and reconstruct the fillups for fuelly. I have a Treo 650 cellphone/PDA with a handy app for tracking MPG, but got lazy. I haven't used it for the XK, so I'll have to start again.

I got the card lock account years ago, mainly for fueling the coach. A typical fillup for the coach when on the road is 80 to 100 gallons of diesel. That means stuffing in credit cards when idiotic, measly limits are reached, even at truck stops. With a card lock, there are no limits. And, most card lock stations are big areas, made for heavy trucks etc.

I got spoiled real fast by getting fuel NOW, without credit card crap or standing in line twice, dollar bills in hand. Or, sitting in a line of cars... card locks are usually abandoned. Also, in Oregon, I can get gas or diesel MYSELF without waiting for the fuel jockey to get around to it.

If we get enough commanders on here we can refer all the newbies to check there the next time someone asks about mileage.

You can also add a mileage banner linked to their website. that way, anyone can see what your MPG is by looking at the sig line. I'll wait until I can fill in the blanks of the last 2 months I've had the Jeep.
