    2.0 or 3.6? I love driving the 2.0. The turbo is fun!

    You were duped. The 2.0 is only going to fare better than the 3.6 if you drive it like a grandma. It has a turbo, they use gas.

    I heard dragsters were starting to release a Wrangler behind them to slow them down instead of a parachute. More drag.

    If you have a lead foot how do you fit it into your Jimmy Choos?

    For realistic gas mileage results you have to fuel up write mileage then check again when you refuel. I found the onboard results to be much different by about 5 miles per gallon better when done by actual fill up and mileage used prior to fill up.

    I live in Utah and have a mixed commute between city driving, mountainous highways, and 80mph freeway and still average between 22-25mpg. I run 91 octane and have just over 1,600 miles.

    Estimated gas mileage is at "highway" speed which is 55mph, not Interstate speed 65>

    I forgot to add I have the 3.6 and get about 17 in city and average 19 on highway. However, I am 75 years old and my lead foot left me years ago :)

    Here is my fuel log on my 2.0T.
    See if you can figure out when the 37s went on

    A flashcal was used to adjust tire size.
    I kept the 4.10 gears in my Rubicon (for now).
