Hi All:
I drove home from the dealer and the the MPG average said 10.2 As more miles are put on the mileage gets better. I am now at 4700 miles and around town it gets 17-17.5 mpg and highway i have hit 22.6. The milage dropped for a while when I put the mufflex 18" muffler on it as it sounded so good I could not keep my foot off the "go" pedal.

I also have the K&N hi pro air filter on it, so I have increased the HP a little and get very good gas milage. It is the HEMI with 3.55 gears so I can't complain.

Jim
