How NOT to Get Great MPG
Lift your Pat with an RRO kit. You break the ground effect created by being only 7+ inches off the ground.
Add 235s for even less MPG and the 1/2 inch higher you get.
Add crossrails, off-road driving lights, mud flaps, trailer hitch and you kind of get the idea.
I'm happy with 21.5 around town with the AC blowing forth, but it gets about the same at 70-75.
Run at 80 mph, you can get real lousy mpg without trying with all the above mentioned goodies.
Drive in the dirt with your AC on, that's why we bought a Patriot here in SoFlo.
Best Tip: Get the 5-speed manny tranny. Agreed!
