I have only had my Sahara Unlimited 4xe about three weeks and don't know which mode would be best on a 1500+ mile interstate highway road trip. Gas is close to $5.00 a gallon and I am trying to save what I can.
That’s not accurate. Putting the jeep in manual mode allows you to keep it in 8th gear on the highway instead of letting the auto transmission change gears during slight acceleration. This will help save you gas on the highway.I saw that post but it sounded like it just changed the way the vehicle calculated the milage readout.
Thank you!! I'm making my trip next week and running I-75 and I-81 heading north first. Hoping for at least that much fuel mileage. I won't be in a hurry so we'll see if I can control myself and keep the speed down at the limit. Yeah, right!!I did a quick Mother's Day weekend 1500-mile round trip and ran Hybrid mode 99% of the time, Max Regen OFF. Tank-fill measure method 22.3mpg overall, almost all just interstate ("The Big Suck" known as I-65).
The 1% consisted of the 2 cold starts at begin/end of the trip running M-mode for gentle warmup. Travel speeds were 65-75mph for a majority of the trip with
a fewmore than a few full-snort-balls-out passing events each way.
The winds were from the side both days so relatively not a huge factor.
