2014 Jeep Cherokee: Fuel Economy Update For August
September 9, 2014
We added about 1,300 miles to the odometer of our 2014 Jeep Cherokee during the month of August. Nobody went on any big trips last month, so we accumulated those miles just commuting around Southern California.
For the month, we averaged 21.7 mpg.
That's a little better than our lifetime average of 20.1 mpg and very close to the EPA's estimate of 22 mpg for combined driving.
Although we've just started our year-long test of the Cherokee, we did see new best and worst fuel economy from a tank of gas this month: 25.4 and 15.5 mpg, respectively.
Worst Fill MPG: 15.5
Best Fill MPG: 25.4
Average Lifetime MPG: 20.1
EPA MPG Rating: 22 Combined (19 City/27 Highway)
Best Range: 302 miles
Current Odometer: 3,150 miles
Note: Cars are sometimes refueled before their fuel tanks are nearly empty. As such, "best" and "worst" fuel economy entries above are not necessarily the result of an entire tank's worth of driving.
