Jeep 4XE Hybrid mode

As most owners know, the default hybrid mode on the 4XE isn’t really a true hybrid mode. It uses battery power until it essentially runs out, then works as a mild hybrid. I have found that manually shifting it into the highest gear possible for a given speed will result in quite respectable mpg. For instance, in eighth gear at 50 miles an hour, with the AC on, it will achieve 37- 42 mpg while at a steady cruise which is quite impressive. Battery usage in this mode is actually quite low. Thought others might like to try this if they haven’t already done so.
