If you're getting one for a daily driver... I say go for it,... the best you'll get is like 22 in the city though.darcy said:Anyone here with a 2.5?? I'm considering a GenII 2.5L as a daily driver... how are they on gas?
The worst thing you could do would be buying another dakota (dispite the engine) for a daily driver.darcy said:22 in the city?? Do you mean highway?? hmm... maybe I should be looking somewhere other that a truck for my daily driver...
According to the EPA results, the 3.9 isn't really a whole lot worse on gas than the 2.5... does that sound right?
Thanks guys, I think I'll go that route and just find a different car... I knew another dakota as a daily driver would be a bit of a stretch, I just wanted another dakota :biggthumpYAAAABUDDY03 said:The worst thing you could do would be buying another dakota (dispite the engine) for a daily driver.
The 3.9L motor is worce milage than the 4.7L.
The 2.5L will get 20-22mph in the CITY, and about 25 on the highway(IF you don't try and pass people all the time).
I suggest doing what the other guy said,... which would be getting a small little car with a tiny motor, and lay off the juice pedal.
Sounds like a bad 3.9. My 5.2 is getting 18 and many 3.9 owners are getting over 20. Was the 3.9 in a 4x4?chester_peabody said:I know there's a big difference in mpg I had a 91 with the 2.5 and got 25mpg. My 92 3.9 gets @16mpg. It's a big enough difference with gas being shitty to make me wish I had the wussy 2.5 again
