i've seen lists before and now i just saw another today on yahoo i believe... "Vehicles you dont want to own during the gas crisis" and of course the jeep srt is on the list... WK2 looking REALLY good by the way! :D ha i'm just tired of hearing about it... i know i didn't buy my rig to visit the pumps less often... and i don't think anyone who buys one of these beasts are too worried about MPG's... you cant keep your foot out of the pedal... theres no way to get good MPG's in my eyes... haha its too fun to get bad gas mileage :rofl:

I have had people comment to me at the dealership like "oh I see you don't mind the gas prices" I tell them "I haven't been paying attention to them for years now, I could care less what they are". I pull up, swipe the card, fill up, record the amount on my checking app on my iPhone and drive away. No second thoughts.

If you're worried about gas prices and MPG, ride a bike. I pay for my car and want to enjoy what I drive. What's the point of having to pay for something for 5-6 years that you don't like use because you get a few more MPGs?

I didn't buy it to get GOOD mileage, but I did buy it to get BETTER mileage. I had a Ram SRT-10 qc before the jeep, and while I knew what I was getting into with the truck, it still sucked to shell out $100 every fillup. The jeep does 4 mpg better, saves me about $65-70 a month. Plus the jeep was $400 cheaper a year on insurance. Couldn't be happier!

I've noticed I've lost about 2 mpg since my fuel system and driveline upgrades.

Not sure if its the bigger injectors or the converter/trans.

Either way I still love my jeep.
