Question Small 12.7 gallon gas tank

Hello, I was wondering what cruising mileage you are getting form your TH. I'm afraid I might have to fill up twice a week. Not sure why it is so small (weight) is the only thing I have come up with.


Thanks
Jeff

I average about 22, and that's with a fairly heavy foot (mine is still fairly new to me, so I have a tendency to zip around traffic alot). Most of my driving is in city, but about 3-4 days a week I have to hit the interstate (70 mph) to get where I am going. I haven't taken it on any noteworthy highway distance so I can't say much about that part.

I'd figure around 300 miles +/- per tank. My last tank was upwards of 28+ mpg with a lot of highway driving, but around town it's a little less.

12.7 gallon tank is common among all passenger cars and nearly an industry standard. What have you been driving before, a Suburban?

My 98 Cherokee had a 20 gallon tank and when I got my 08 Vibe and realized it had a 13 gallon tank I dramatically thought I had made a huge mistake... But turns out I lived and it wasn't a big deal, just something you gotta get used to.

may oprah be with you
-and also with u

way to come off like a prick, I've been driving an 05 grand cherokee and it's a 18 gallon, most american big american cars like the charger, challenger, 300, camaro, mustang, all have 18 gallons tanks except for the mustang which has 16. The Cherokee has 15.8 and it shares an engine.

I drive a 4x4 dodge dakota that has a 22 gallon tank. It's get about 16 mpg. If I can get 300 miles out of a TH that would be perfect.

My liberty tank is 20ish - I agree that 12.7 seems small for for a rig meant for off roading and traveling. And isn't the TH tank a little bigger than the other trims?

not according to all the sites out there they are all 12.7, and there isn't any gas thank size options on jeeps configurator. Would have been a great option to have i'm sure alot of people would have gotten it, think everybody with 4x4 should opt to get it. it should be at least 16 gallons 18 would be ideal.
