I have never gotten less than 14mpg. I usually get 15-17mpg in town with my 5.7 Hemi. With that being said, "in town" driving where I live (city of about 80,000) is quite possibly a different environment than driving in a big city where you have stop lights every few blocks. I quite commonly drive on an "in town" stretch of up to 5 miles with no stops. I guess I'm just saying that "in town" could be different for me than it is for you.
