I have a 2013 lone star quad cab with the hemi and 8 speed. It is a 4x4 and has 3.21 diffs, the rear is an LSD. I expect the mileage to improve once the engine gets more miles on it and loosens up a bit, but my first tank averaged 19.2 mpg which was about an even split between city and highway. Keep in mind though I have been driving like an old man and I keep the MPG screen up on my EVIC to help me monitor my MPG real time.

I'm excited to see what I get when I take my first long trip because my dad gets 17-18mpg in the same conditions in his '09 4x2 with the hemi, 5 speed, and 3.21 diff, and we got 22.7mpg when we drove up to Oklahoma city last summer. Since I already get better mileage than he does around town it'll be interesting to see what I get on a road trip.
