On paper 2020 Jeep Compass says you can travel 338 miles. BUT !
i just fill up to a full tank. I average 25.5 miles per gal. Distance I can actual go is 233 mile. VERY DISAPPOINTMENT!

I believe the 338 miles is for long distance steady driving under miles per hour? Compass has a 13.5 gas tank.
Anyone else is having to fill up very often?

That 338 miles is based on a combined city/highway avg. of 25 MPG AND the tank would be bone dry!

I am still learning about the Jeep Compass Trailhawk. Never thought I would buy a Jeep Compass or any Jeep. We had a car accident ( no one injury) and we needed a second car. (Prefer Toyotas)
We look around on the first day of looking , drove the Compass Trailhawk and my wife love the size and handling . Brought on the spot.
I like the way it drives and the 4x4 system works great for the coffee farm ( going up and down a steep hill.).
Just after one week of owning it. We still like it. But learning about all the flaws it has.
would I buy another one? Um. Not sure ? And No Subaru dealers where I live.

One more thing the radio in the Jeep Compass cannot receive my flavorite radio station (am 90.7). All three of my other cars /4x4s have NO problems catching this station ( another disappointment).

In summer I can get 400+ miles out of a tank, but most of my driving is on rural highways at 55-60MPH. In winter I can still get over 300 miles. I filled up tonight and my EVIC said my range was 375 miles.

Is the 25.5 mpg overall or for a single tank?

How many gallons did it take to fill the tank when you went 233 miles? If the 25.5 mpg was for that tank it should have taken 9.13 gallons.

My miles per tank distance has ranged from 212 to 413 miles (based on fill ups that took 12.5 gallons or more).

My Compass has a lifetime average of 25.8 mpg over 76,000 miles. The lowest tank was 17.5 mpg the highest was 32 mpg.

233 miles ? I fill up today, a little over 8 gals. Drove approx 79.3miles right after, almost down 1/3 tank , average 27.2 mpg. Dash show 163 mile to empty. NOT GOOD!
Vehicle is a stock Trailhawk. Still I am happy to get over 25 miles per gall.

Just have to visit Costco more often. Kona,Hawaii Costco is the third largest Costco in America in sales. Our gas stations lines are super long. “Every mornings “there is a gas tanker refilling Costco pumps and some days a 2nd gas tanker is called in.
The number one Costco in America is Honolulu, Hawaii.

Hawaii Costco sell fresh “Poke” , “Kalua pig”, “poi”, Lomi-salmon..etc..lots of local stuffs..

I'm good for 300+ miles on a tank full. I don't push it below 1/4 tank very often so I don't know just how far it would go if pushed, but so far it's been consistent in its readings.

Oops on my part….I was park on a hill when I took the reading. My gas tank when down a little over 1/8 . I am guessing on hills the computer may not read correctly?
You are correct. If the fuel is deeper on one side and the sensor is in the shallow end, it will read only what it senses. The computer only knows what the sensor tells it.

Either you have a heavy foot or most of your miles are city. At those numbers you should have gotten 334. Just saying it could be your driving habits. Oh you should be able to get a signal booster for your stereo.

I missing a part of my antenna? The screw in tip. Just order a replacement.

My driving is city , highway and off roading on a coffee land roads ( farm is on a hillside) up & down everyday.

Yes the gas tank is small. Very disappointed,. My 2001 Toyota Camry has a 18 gal gas tank vs Jeep Compass with a 13.5 gas tank.

My dash board says average 25.7. BUT the Trip screen shows 21.8 average. I am confuse?
Which one is the truest?

At 334 miles per tank , averaging 27.8 miles per gal.
I am getting 21.8 mpg (actual) X 13.5 v 294 miles per fill up.

I do not have a heavy foot ,nor do I take off at high speeds.

Those numbers reflect mileage since each one was reset. You can reset them individually by holding in the OK button, while on their respective screens.
I usually reset the main one at each fill-up, so I can compare it to my calculated mileage.

They really can't expect to get over 300 miles "on a tank" when they are refilling when they are only down 8 gallons, that is only somewhere between 1/2 and 5/8 of a tank. They could have drove many more mile on what remained in the tank.

Thank you. I am just showing what’s the dash is reading . One setting says 24.7 & , mile trip says 20.1 mpg.
That's becuase they were reset at different time. If you reset both of them they will read the same.

13.5 gas tank is very small, I think?
Yes I agree, but you can still go much further if you wait until the tank is closer to empty.
