I have 2000 miles on my 1500 Hemi. I get around 15- 16 mpg overall. This includes some highway, and mostly local driving. I'm thrilled. The day I picked up my new truck, and traded my 2003, 2500 QC, 8' bed truck, I checked the computer and it read 8.8. I was impressed when that truck gave me 2 digit mileage that didn't have a decimal point in it. I am saving about $100 per month on gas.

I put a Yakima roof rack on to carry my Kayak, and the mileage went down to about 13.5.
