Just done nearly 700 miles at the Weekend in our Renegade 2.0d auto 4x4 and I have to say gutted at the Fuel consumption... brochure says 60+ mpg motorway I got  :icon_cry:

Cruise control is not the most economical way to drive a vehicle - or so I'm told. I have had the same experience though.

Especially over hilly terrain if that's what you were driving over?

And you won't get top mpg till a vehicle is properly 'run in'.

Thanks guys puts the mind at rest looks like Jeep are as bad as VW when it comes to MPG claims we have had a letter regarding a recall due to emissions so we'll see

I have the Commander for that lol I was just expecting the Renegade to be a little more frugal there is brochure specs and there is this though 33% less than quoted on a run is a wee bit of a liberty I'd say as it's only 25% less round town usually she can see 32mpg on the school run so I still thing 39 on a run is a bit poor

 

but at the same time wife loves her wee Jeep so I guess all's good

that does seem low, not sure what engine was in the loaner Bishops gave me when the JK went in for a recall but it was giving me 50+ on the display, 6 speed, went very well.

It does state that the mpg figures are for comparison only and may not be representative of real world driving. Always take the figures with a large pinch of salt.

 

I have the 1.4 turbo and mine averages 32-33 mpg. I do live in Wales and going home from Aberdare is all up hill. If I go to Cardiff then I can get mid 30s easy as it is on the flat.

 

Motorway with cruise I can get 50+ mpg. If only all my driving was motorway.
