With a tank mainly driven in the city I get only 13mpg in 2wd mode on my 4x4AT...I hope it'll improve a bit in the future, as its still quite new (1000 miles). I get 18mpg on the highway....this car is a gas sucker, so if gas milage is any concern, stay away from it - else a really great vehicle!!!!

My daily trip is 100 miles to and from work. About 50% is highway, 30% rural driving and 20% city. I just got my FJ and on my second fillup I got 21 MPG. The engine only has about 700 miles on it so it is not quite broke in yet.

16 mpg... all city with a few short, but hard blasts on the freeway. But, how do you put a price tag on such a neat ride?

I have been monitoring my mpg by noting the miles traveled and the volume that the tank will take before auto shut off during fill out. Not sure if this is an accurate method. I have excluded data where premature shut off occurred at certain gas pumps.
My commute is ~42miles and it is mostly highway. I have also monitored during road trips where I only got off the highway to fill up.
If I am cruising at 55mph, I consistently get just over 23mpg
at 65mph, it drops to ~20-21mpg
at 70-75mph, its ~18mpg
at 80-85mph, its ~14-15mpg.

This is a 2008 4X2 with between 80K and 90K.
The data was taken over ~3months over a summer in east Tennessee. Hope this helps someone!

It sounds like you are tracking your mileage correctly, if you are consistent about tracking miles driven versus gas pumped.

What is really interesting about your observations is the huge drop between 70-75 mph and 80-85 mph. I do not consistently drive above 80 mph and have only tracked mine in the 70-75 mph range a few times. I note similar mpg with my 2012 4x4, with the exception that you seem to be beating me by 1 to 2 mpg in the 55 mph range. I am typically averaging 21 mpg when cruising at speeds of 55-65 mph and around 19 mpg when in the 70-75 mph range.

I have a 2012 4x2 and rarely get below 20 mpg. Normal is 21.3 driving to/from work at 70-75 mph (secondary roads in Texas). I do on occasion get 22 on the interstate at 75-80 mph.

I live in the city and its stop & go I get about 18 mpg. the truck is a box on wheels. if worried about gas consumption buy a pruis hybrid. its great offroad.
That said, my auto 4x4 gets 18 to 20 MPG when in 2 wheel only.
Pretty good, IMHO, for what it is!...gm
