Fuel economy TH V6 with tow package

Anyone have a TH V6 with tow package if so would you mind letting me know what type of mpg you are seeing in the city and on the highway.

Cheers

Thank you for the responses however was looking for info from people from the same region so we can swap info based on similar weather vehicle and driving conditions.

I have a North 3.2 with tow package. Just over 1,000 KMs on the clock so far and I seem to be getting about 12 to 13 l/100km on my short (5 km) commute to work. Creeps up to about 14 or 15 if I use the remote start too much. Had a gentle 15 minute, 80 km/h cruise along the Whitemud yesterday and go 7.3 l/100 km (engine was already warm when I set off). Yet to take her for a proper road trip.

I haven't done a manual calc yet so all those numbers are just based off what the trip computer is telling me but it does seem to be improving as the car runs in, hopefully will be even better once the warm weather arrives.

I have a TH with the V-6 and trailer tow with a little over 800miles. I have not computed actual mileage but the computer states that it is averaging 19.8 miles per gallon. That is for about 50/50 city/highway with no expressway. Did around 200miles of highway in snow mode which limits top gear. Have not seen 9th gear, but on my rural highway miles running around 62mph it regularly runs in 8th gear on flat sections.

Looked on Fuelly.com and they have 7 Cherokees with V6 engines registered. Gas mileage is somewhere around 10L per 100km.

I'm averaging 16L/100 mixed city and highway.
I drive heavy though lol (I don't see a point in taking 5 minutes to get up to the speed limit, so its 'mash the gas' everywhere)

Highway driving, I've been down to about 10.3L/100
City, best I've managed so far is about 14.6L/100

Worst is when I toss her in to SPORT mode.... 20+L/100
