Many of the other claims are by 'Americans', so do the math.

To the person who gets 600-650 Km per tank at 8 Liters/100Km, I thought the tanks were bigger than 48 Liters.

Can you convert that to amurican? I can't read that metric stuff.....

2013 R/T with 17000 miles.
Towed a 1000lbs (seadoo plus trailer) from western Canada to eastern Canada and back, mostly travelling through the USA. A good mix of flat, and hill terrain with a mix of speed limits of 55mph to 75 mph. 55mph to 60 mph resulted in 23 mpg as per the evic. When the speeds reached 70 to 80mph then as expected fuel economy dropped to around 17mpg. Overall I was happy with the way the Journey handled the load and the 5500 miles of blacktop.

Default very good

We just got a used 2009 SXT AWD with the 3.5 the wife and friends drove to Edmonton for a weekend of shopping and a concert. The total distance 1188 km fuel used 126 litre it works out to around 30 mpg (imperial ) that is very respectibile. Temperature was in the high 20s so the AC was no too.

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.

What are y'all getting???

2009 sxt Journey 3.5 v6. 235,000 miles on it. Recently changed the spark plugs, coil boots, cleaned the throttle body , changed oil. City I get 10.3 hwy I get 11mpg. With I knew anything else I can do to increase my mileage.

Averaging around 23.
Last trip on the highway boosted it up to 26.2 mpg.
I'm happy, coming from a full size Ford and averaging about 16.
