Mines the same. I have a 2006 auto 4wd s model. I was doing an average of 240 or so. The more 4wd use the lower it went. Now Im careful driving and not 4wheeling much(it says in the manual 4wd eats gas) and its getting higher. Last i checked, I got 275 miles. Hey, it could be worse.. jeeps get even lower milege.
