Right in around 10 mpg @ 46000 lbs if I stick to 60 mph or less. It idles along at 1400 RPM @ 60 mph, it drops about 1 mpg when I get into the mountains. If I don't take the Jeep I get about 0.5 mpg more.

Hey, we have to pay for our free health care somewhere!
I used to worry about fuel prices, but then wised up and bought a bunch of energy stocks. Now I make far more money than I spend when oil prices skyrocket. I'd gladly pay $10/gallon ($2.50/litre).

Health care??

What does gas price have to do with health care? Not one cent goes to it. I am sick of hearing Canadians always blaming extortion prices on our health care. I complain at the beer store and employees blame it on health care. BS. We pay more than 2x the cost for beer and liquor in Ontario. We get screwed at the pumps for 91 octaine 14x4=56 cents extra per gallon for 91 while US pays apprx 25 cents extra, Must be because of our health care. NOt.
Why do we pay 2x the cost for freight on new vehicles and 20% more when the dollar has been at par for ages?
Sorry. Had to vent
