Ours has a bit over 2000 miles on it and all of it around town. I'm showing 21.9 mpg, the only load has been a few bags of groceries. No more trips to Home Depot for sacks of cement or a van full of kids, those days are behind us now.

gas mileage

Mine says 19.3 all stop and go have 1800 miles on it.I do notice if I make all real short drives to car wash and quick food places it does go down to about 17 or so but than I drive across town it will go up a lot.

Thank you all.

Did all of you get the same mileage you are getting today when the van was brand new? I guess I am trying to understand if my mileage will also increase as I put on more miles.

We have been getting approx 15.5 mpg so far and wanted to check in with all of you to see what mileage you have been getting driving in town. I had filled a survey with Chrysler complaining about the low gas mileage and someone from MOPAR called me told me that gas mileage will increase after I put in approx 2000 miles on the van. Not sure if I agree.

Would love to get some thoughts on this.
Have you checked tires for proper inflation? That could be culprit. Sometimes it's missed in the Pre delivery inspection. A few psi low could make a few mpg difference. Also if your city drives are super short in stop and go that will reduce your mpg.

A contributing factor to less MPG is tire size. Going from 18" to 20" appears to cause about a 1.5 decrease in MPG. That might make MPG comparisons less valuable unless people include tire size. Of course, driving style makes a huge difference. So comparing MPG can become rather meaningless.

Where did you get that information? Why would the inside diameter of the tire make a difference in MPG if the outside circumference is the same?

gas mileage

It all depends on how you drive it if go to the drive up window at the bank and idle the van miledge is very bad so I usually shut it off and restart it or if I go to taco Bell and get stuck behind a lot of cars again I shut off and restart it as my mileage really goes down but all the cars I have owned have been like that.

Car & Driver comparison test of tire sizes. I'm just passing on what I read, but it makes sense to me. People forget the added weight of a large rim and the larger frontal area.
