If I am on the highway, as I am sure your numbers reflect, a 400+ mile range is normal for me. I usually get 30-33 depending on conditions, time of year, and gas.
The I4 does much better city than the V6, but on the highway they seem to be very close unless its a Trail Hawk V6.
Yes in town my range is around 270-300 miles but if I get any highway in the mix it goes up well over 300 easily.

In the summer (better fuel, less idling) I've reached over 600kms to a tank (375 miles) of strictly highway driving. Highway driving, for me, is driving at speeds above 63mph (normally 65-85mph) avoiding most towns.

Throw in some town driving, and I can still easily reach 300+ miles on my routine trips(50kms town/100kms highway)

In the winter time it drops, but I like a warm seat/cabin, and the fuel plain sucks.

I really can't complain about the range of my V6 TH, as it's only slightly worse than my previous car, a 2.0L 6spd manual Suzuki SX4.

I never bother with checking the fuel range, just drive it until the gas gauge gets down to 1/4 tank and fill 'er back up. Gas is so cheap right now, not worth getting too concerned about range or mpg. Never thought I'd see gasoline cost half as much as a gallon of milk.

One reason to keep half an eye on it is that quite often a change in your mpg can signal issues you might not get a CEL for.

I never checked the mpg around town as could vary so much. On a trip, with the V-6 Trailhawk loaded for bear, we generally averaged about 23.5 mpg (US gal, not Cdn). I'd start looking for a gas station any time we got down to 3/8 tank, or a bit less, as it can be a long, long way between them in the northwest US and Canada. I'd often carry a spare gallon of gas too. Better safe than walking with an empty gas can in your hand. - Ted

I regularly go on the highway, and travel 500kms easily using only a approx 3/4 of the tank in winter, slightly less during the summer months.

I agree.........
Those are good numbers. I am sure, as I have found, out that there is not a drop off in mpg till around 70mph and over with this Cherokee.
That must be the 8th gear that allows that to happen.
What is interesting from my experience, is that my last vehicle, an '04 grand Cherokee V8 with overdrive the drop off started at around 60 mph.

Also the issue in the US is that summer gas in the larger cities. In my trips to Chicago I avoid filling up till at least 50 miles of more outside that entire Chicago area. There is a big mpg loss if I fill up before I drive back.
But that 375 number is one of the best I remember. Normally its just complaints on the mpg from the Trail Hawks.
Also driving around in "sport" will KO the MPGs.
