Better Mileage in a Range
 
Hi I have a supercharged range rover sport and I was wondering any tips to get some better mileage. I'm averaging about 11 now and would like to get it up to 14 or so. Thanks in advance.

I suppose all the advice the Hummer guy got applies here too.

don't even think about comparing it to a hummer

Well, they both are gas guzzlers that are basically 99% useless...:D

Yup, same stuff as the Hummer post...

Too late!

Besides, the suggestions will be the same. Search for "hummer" here.

I suppose all the soundproofing, navigation, ride comfort, offroad/snow ability, and image is worth nothing since it doesn't get 20 mpg. I think I'm gonna get like 5 prius' and tow them in my range while they're idling so I can get negative mileage.

Um... ok? Put the keyboard down and back away slowly meng. As for the SUV, well... It's actually fairly decent with the .69 sixth and 3.73 rear end. Short of a taller sixth, a taller rear end might help a little, but the biggest problem I imagine would be keeping it in a decently tall gear with the auto. I say start with the basics. Drive 55, don't get in races to wait for reds, etc... A manual transmission with slightly better ratios driven well should be able to get it into the 20s for highway, but who knows whether the swap is worthwhile for ya.
