The Road Chose Me Volume 2 OUT NOW!!
The Road Chose Me Volume 2: Three years and 54,000 miles around Africa
I’ve been saving gas receipts for a while now so I could figure out my mileage and the results are in:
In the last 3659kms Jeep used 453 liters of gas at 12.32L/100KM.
In other words, in the last 2287 miles Jeep used 119.26 gallons at 19.18 miles/gallon.
That all cost me $525 CAD for an average of $1.16/L CAD
or $472 USD for an average of $3.96/gal USD.
I always thought this Jeep got 20mpg when I drove it conservatively, now I have confirmation that it’s pretty close to that.
There are some points to note here:
- More than a few tanks of gas I did not go over 80kms/h (50mph) due to road surface and speed limits.
- The average price is high because gas was $3.99/gal USD in the Arctic Circle.
- I didn’t adjust my speedo after putting on my 31″ tires which have a different circumference than stock. It reads somewhere around 10-15% low, so the mileage figures are in reality a little better than the above.
I just did an oil change, air filter and tire rotation as well which was a great chance to crawl all over the Jeep and have a good look. As far as I could see, everything is going great. Oh, I did smash a headlight on the Dalton so I’ll have to get a new one of those. It doesn’t really matter for now though because it hasn’t been dark enough to use them yet.
