Overly optimistic fuel economy
I've noticed this for a while now, but my most recent trip from NM to OR has me a bit miffed about the "fuel economy" gauges. Over about 6 tanks, tracked with Fuelly, my Jeep's "Average MPG" was anywhere from 1 to 3 mpg over reality. Additionally, the "estimated range" was junk, leading me to coast into Bend, OR on fumes because 200 miles ended up being more like 170 miles.
Annoying, but now I know.
Anyone else see this excessive optimism?
