I have a brand new 2009 Chrysler Town & Country 3.8 engine I picked up i believe last sunday my question is i only have 180 miles on the van and my gas light came on already. I filled up the tank and it took 17 gallons of gas so i am doing the numbers and it seems like horrible fuel economy. I realize it is pretty much mostly street driving but 10 miles a gallon?? i am hoping i didn't buy the wrong vehicle here. Could it be just because the engine is new and has to break in? Should i bring it into the dealer and have them look it over?
What are you guys seeing fuel wise in your 3.8's? ANy thoughts?
