    My MPG is bad. 16-17 MPG it's my only complaint.

    Mostly Hi Way or City? Do you have the 3.7 or 4.0? AWD or 2?

    Mostly city but some highway, I have the 3.7 and it's the 4 x 4.

    The R/T has the 4.0 engine with 2 wheel drive..

    I have a 2007 SXT 4x4 3.7L with 13,000 miles, I have found it gets very close to EPA of 15 city 20 highway. The highest I have gotten was 21.5 MPG, 100% highway.

    I also own a 2008 R/T for about 9 month now. My mileage is the same as yours. I I average 22.5 miles per g. combined highway and city driving with 2 wheel drive. However, the past couple of weeks we have cold snowy and icy road conditions and I use 4 wheel drive a lot. My mileage avereraged only 16 miles per gallon, I must say I'm heavy on the gas pedal.... :D

    I used to own the jeep liberty for three years. I must say the Nitro's 4 litre engine is a much better choice than the 3.7.

    I'm using a K&N airfilter and a Magnaflow catback. More bottom end torgue and my gas mileage improved. :)
