I've got an '10 CC Sport with the HEMI (3.92 rear end). I just did a 200 mile round trip to a zoo in East Tx. I was running 70-75 on I20 and I got 17.62MPG with the tires inflated to the factory 35psi (warm temp of about 38psi via EVIC). This was very hilly, so I'm sure that had something to do with the mileage. I was quite please with it though.

Last year I took a trip to New Orleans (about 350 miles one way) and I got about 20MPG going down with the cruise set at 69. Coming home I was running 75--80 and got about 17 MPG. This is mostly flat roads, so again I was quite pleased with the results.

Where in Maine did you go? I love that area up there, and miss it. I was stationed in Portsmouth, NH while in the Coast Guard and took frequent trips up along the coast when I was broke and had time on my hands (gas credit cards were wonderful things back then LOL)
