Very disappointing Dodge Journey mileage

AAUUGGHH!!

I think if I needed a van full time for work Id go for a sprinter van with the mercedes logo, diesel engine and such.

Maybe the tires are only inflated to 18 psi and you can fullem up?

It's a 2010, so it's not likely unbroken-in.

EPA 24 hwy? The key to getting better mpg- if that is what you want- is to select something that gets good mpgs.

Stay out of overdrive, if you're driving about in town. I go to "3" in both the Karen-mobile and my Caravan, and I drive in OD OFF with the truck.
