Official Dodge Journey Fuel Economy Thread...
What are y'all getting. Please include Journey model (SXT, RT, etc.), engine and what kind of driving you are doing.
I had a chance to take mom's on a little trip cross state to drop her off for a little stay at my aunt's home. About a 210 mile round trip, 170 miles on interstates and/or 55 mph limit, four lane highways and about 40 miles of in-town driving.
PRIOR to this trip, her trip computer read 21.8 mpg and had never been reset since the day we bought it. I reset it, filled up and recorded the mileage so I could hand calculate to verify.
Upon return I parked it for the night at my place and used it on a 24 mile round trip, about half highway-half town driving to go play golf and back. Got gas on my way home to fill-up and calculated by hand.
Trip computer showed 24.8 MPG and hand calculated I got 24.3 MPG. Pretty respectable out of a mid-sized, cross-over CUV with a pretty peppy V6 IMO. Also, I'll include that we "made" the dealer take the factory 19" wheels/tires off and install factory 17" wheels/tires. I think the 17s make a difference in fuel economy.
