09 5.7 Hemi MPG Check-in
 
For all who have a 2009 (or '10 I guess) 5.7 Hemi, can you post the MPG shown on your dash right now? Please be honest! I am trying to get a realistic average. Right now, mine is at only 15.6 MPG. It's at about 32k miles, so it's due for new plugs, but I installed the K&N clod-air intake kit about 10k miles ago and hoped that would've helped more. Thanks in advance for your input!

Thanks. I saw the mileage threads, but I wanted to get a resplonse from people who have this specific engine. Are there any mods to improve MPG much?

I average around 16 with mixed driving. If I keep it under 70, around 19+ mpg.

I average 15.6 in city and some highway mix. I did recently take it for a 2000+ mile trip and with my SuperChips set in Economy mode, I got 17.2 mostly highway. The only other comparison I have is the 700+ mile trip I took last June towing my aluminum trailer and car (approximatley 4200 lbs total) with the bed and back seat loaded with tools, slicks, luggage, etc pulling mostly flat land until I got to the hills of western MD, average speeds on the interstate were around 70 in tow mode (without Superchips) and I averaged 13. These are all on the stock 20" Wranglers and chrome clad wheels. Hope this helps!!
