Hey guys!
I regularly get about 16.5ish, but I have gotten 19.2 once... doing 55 thru California on a trip up to Washington from Texas... with a 1500 trailer in behind, no less... no clue why exactly except I didn't get outta 5th except to drop to 6th on the long a straight for an entire tank. Now, as I said, I get 16.5 with city/hwy split but I also have the 6-speed getrag, and I've heard that really makes a difference as the 4-auto really sucks up the power. I borrowed a Liberty with the same engine once, and it was lighter with the auto and it was stupid slow, but my little silver beast seems to go faster, get better mileage, and drive smoother than the Liberty... eh, who knows. At least I don't have the 4.7, mileage of the 5.7 but 75 horse less power... lol
