Just finished a 4000 mile trip and over all averaged around 18 with 1600lbs of stuff in the bed up and down mountains and dirt/gravel roads... Now that I'm up here in Alaska I've been getting around 16 on base with a 15 and 25mph speed limit and lots of stops... I generally averaged around 20-21 after I installed my AFE CAI on the highway, which I did a few days into the 11-day drive in a friend's driveway in Montana. Before that it was around 18-19 on mostly flat roads, so the CAI did help the mileage there and probably saved me a good deal bit of money going through Canada for 6 or 7 days where gas was above $6 a gallon! I used to get around 14 in town and now I'm getting around 15 in town, but I'm VERY easy on the throttle 95% of the time so I don't have to dump my entire paycheck into my gas tank, but every now and then I just need to hear that Hemi ROAR!
