Check out my "MPG-o-logy" thread over in the Engine/Drivetrain forum

I'm at about 750' above sea level.

I get about 400kms per tank and that's going all the way until the gas light pops up and driving a bit with it on. We did all city driving, our Pat did no do any highway yet. Same as my 1998 CRV, but my honda Civic on the same tank of gas get about 575 hihihiih... but we love our truck no matter...

I just did a 2290k round trip NOTL to Quebec City and Montreal (just turned 5000k), used 193l of gasoline. Set cruise at 115k to 118k on the highway (401,40) with AC on about 80% of the time. I do not 'baby' the Pat, but watch traffic at least three cars ahead. If I drive in Toronto and access 407 the ramp speed is about 100K as the traffic moves at 120k. Never had the system show over 9.7l per tank. (4x4 automatic)

So it seems everyone here is getting way better mileage than I am getting.

Do anyone know why or what I can do to improve it? I'm now at 4000km, and have never gone over about 380km on a tank of gas. I do 80% or more highway driving.

The dealership keeps telling me my engine has to "break in" and that takes either 5000km or up to 15000km, depending on who is working that day at the dealership.

If you drive at 120KM/H or more on the hwy, 380KM on a tank sounds about right.

I am getting about 400km per tank, I do 60/40 mix of city to highway driving and highway driving is mostly 407/427 (so 120kmh typical).

Some stats:

central Ontario highway driving (Hwy 11, 12, 400) = 9.5 l/100km
all city driving (Toronto/Mississauga/Brampton) = 12.8 l/100km

I could probably do better if I pussyfooted more. On the 407, if you do not do more than 110 in the slow lane, they pass you on the shoulder and flip you the bird. [grumble]

GAS

I'm in Newfoundland. Lots of hills. I get about 400 klicks per tank; mixed city/highway. Mine is a 07 4x4 Trail Rated CVT 2 with crawl ratio.

My dealer said the first 3 tanks wouldn't realize the optimal fuel efficiency, not to use the same gas over & over (mix it up with different brands ie: shell, acro, etc), and not to drive the same everywhere (do some street, some freeway, some slow & some fast). My high was 23.8 & my low was 21.9 for the first 400 mi, right now I'm at 22.2 according to my in-dash thing.

An interesting thread... I have a 2007 Limited Trail Rated FDII/CVT2. About 5000 km on the odometer. I tend to fill up as soon as the gas light goes on out of fear of doing damage to the fuel pump. Pushing your luck does not save you on any gas... I get about 420 km per tank, usually about 41 to 42 L. About 50% highway driving. Typical highway speed between 110 and 130 km/h; and yes, I have had my first unrequested photo in the mail.

I love my Patriot and am very happy with it.

See you out there...

You are very lucky to be able to get the Patriot as a CRD... Here in North America, the Grand Cherokee is the only Jeep available as a Turbo Diesel. Fortunately Chrysler has announced that they are spending significant money to expand their CRD series here as well. The Liberty was available as a CRD but that was pulled as it did not meet the Californian standards.

I am eagerly awaiting the Commander CRD as that will be my next new vehicle. I am always so jealous (with John Lennon playing in the background) when I get to Europe and Africa and see all the diesel models available there! Obviously these models are also available DownUnder!!!

Enjoy your CRD!!!

Not one to argue with a mechanic... and not saying you are wrong.

Speaking as a process engineer, I know you are looking for trouble when running any pump without fluid going through it as the fluid typically acts as coolant as well. A pump that is running without fluid generally overheats and could lead to premature failure. Now, I agree that the fuel pump is a bit smaller, and you probably need to run it for some time before you would do any significant damage, but I simply don't believe it to be good practice, and my car has to do another 295 000 km... ;-)
