    Currently I've been driving an 87 Jeep Cherokee Laredo, getting about 12 in the city, and about 18-20 in the freeway. I'm just wondering pretty much if a Durango will be about the same, if not better or worse by about 1mpg.

    I had a 1999 5.9L, it averaged 14mph mostly highway driving. A whole 9mpg when towing a 3000lb boat. Worst vehicle I have ever owned.

    Buddy of mine has one, averages 12mpg combined driving. It's 10 or less in the city and maybe 15 on the freeway. Get a jeep or the like.
