Do you have the 4.0 or the 3.7? Sounds like a 4.0 with that mpg. I averaged 24-26 100% city driving.

Is your car a 2010 model? That's the only year of this body style that had the 4.0 and that's typical mpg for a 4.0.

Do the math, you can't trust that gauge it's never right, it's close but not 100% accurate

It also depends on what gas you are using and your altitude

That's what I thought, so when I saw 35, I did the math and came up with ~34.5. Within .5 isn't too bad lol.

With South Florida traffic in the morning there isn't much room to floor it, especially in the city. So I just shift under 2k rpms , saves me $$$. Now when I go for a late night cruise I let it rip Love rowing through the gears getting rubber 1-2-3 haha

Well I know driving in a school zone today at 25 mph I could barely touch the gas pedal to hold speed. I'm thinking I could drive a lot harder and not get down to 14.
