While my Renegade was off the road for a month & had a brand new Giulietta 1.6 multijet diesel TCT to run around in & I was getting 52mpg on my 20 mile commute (country roads) & 57mpg on 220 mile round trip to the coast & back. This proves that aerodynamics makes a big difference.

There's a couple of things that make a real difference to MPG on the 4WD auto diesel trailhawk.

Motorway vs A roads vs Town.

The 4WD system switches to 2wd when driving along at a consistent speed and throttle pressure (so 35-50mph for a little while) and as you decelerate down it re engages at about 35. Also if you flick over to manual at say 50 when it's in 2wd it instantly re engages 4WD.

So round town the 4WD is usually engaged, most of the time as your accelerating and decelerating a lot.

On A roads once your up to 40 or so constant speed, it switches to 2WD.

On Motorways it's switched to 2WD in the cruise, but here the speed your at, makes a hell of a difference. The best gear to be in is 9th but this is only engaged at above approx 60. The difference between 60 and 70 (indicated) I have found is taking it from 46mpg to 53Mpg. This is because the vehicle is shaped like a brick as noted already by others, so sitting in 9th, at 60 on the motorway gives the best MPG.

Over 19000 miles my average on Fueley is 42.3, I've had as low as 35 when Booting it about, best per tank is 48.4. This is because even if sitting at 60 on the motorway and getting in region of 54 indicated on the fuel computer, I tend to have mixed driving on the same tank full which brings the tank average down.

The car has done 600 miles now, and for the last tank the trip reports 39.0 mpg, and calculation gives 39.7 mpg. That's close enough for me. This was for many short trips, in a hilly area constantly going out (down the bottom of the hill) and home (100m higher back to the top) on a slope shown to be between 7% and 10% , so I am sure it will improve on longer, flatter runs.

By the way, is there any way I can see the trip when I am stationary? All I get when stopped or at low speeds is the useless plan view of the jeep. I have to be driving while fiddling around pressing buttons and looking at the screen rather than looking at what I am about to crash into on the road ahead. There has to be a safer way !

Just turn the parking sensor system off - button on the row above the climate controls.

Previously: 2017, 1.4 petrol, 6 speed auto, FWD, Limited, Omaha Orange ...

Now gone electric.

Thanks! Yes, that makes complete sense, but it didn't occur to me.

Yes only Fiat Chrysler designers think that when the car is in Park, you still need to see the parksense display! What a bunch of complete muppets they are, when it comes to real life usability.
I’ve soon got tired of having to press the poxy park sense button at the end of my days travel, to see the trip computer.

Hi All,
Having now covered just over 3000 miles my 2.0 Diesel AWD Auto (140bhp) is averaging 39-40 mpg in general use (mainly commuting part city part motorway).
Resetting the counter for my commute I have managed 52 mpg at best over the 25 miles, but in heavy traffic the same journey has given 37.
Also I tow a small 2 berth caravan quite regularly (1000kg) and am quite pleased with the economy - 28-29 mpg on 'normal' roads, 22-23 mpg on more hilly routes such as the Pennines and Lakes.

My petrol 1.4 Multi Jet 168bhp auto is showing 31 mpg average . Car is re-mapped and has the power pedal adjustable thingy installed as well . More power is always good !

Iíve had my 2.0 diesel 4wd Renegade for 2 years & done 32,000 miles.

Over that time I have managed to average 50mpg itís a mixture of short journeys & motorways.

That's a VERY good average.
