I just came back from a 2200 mile vacation and averaged 7-9 MPG. Not wonderful but kind of what I expected.
I would typically drive at 65mph. Winds were decent most days and it was on fairly flat terrain.

I have 3.92 gears so with the hemi, there is no shortage of power up hills or if I need to pull out and pass. It's just a little thirsty though...

That might explain why my exhaust pipe was BLACK on the outside of it for about 1" around the whole pipe. I also had carbon on my bumper. I took it in but "It's Normal"!! I didn't know a Hemi was a diesel in disguise...
