Yeah diesel, supposed to be extremely fuel efficient but inst, i get 16.5km/1 liter
Don't know (= too lazy) how to calculate that to gallons per mile. Rest of the world uses metric anyway

38.81 mpg.... (US gallons).... I use online conversion calculators.

it depends on how you drive, conditions, urban vs extra urban, etc...

Looking for input on what vehicles you all drive to the mountain. I have about 12k to put into this. Maybe more.

Thanks for input--

I drive a 2000 jeep grand Cherokee with studs that I love!!

Why would you even risk it? I get chains are annoying but the 330 is sketch. I drove that hwy so many times and saw so many people rear end, slide off and flip their shit. Especially in a rwd with no weight in the back. Your just asking for shit to happen.

Currently my vehicle of choice is a 2001 GMC Sierra 2500HD. Only vehicle reliable enough and with enough room to haul all our gear and the people.

If it's just me, I'd probably take my 2005 Toyota Corolla but I don't like going alone.

proper tires help tho. RWD with proper tire will get much further than AWD with summer tires.
