I put my foot in this hemi a few times, its just too fun not to. But the good mileage was 99% putting her in cruise control.

I got 14+ mpg around town over the first 3k miles, 25-45mph driving with frequent stops and frequent foot to the floor hemi fun. But I also use cruise control around town whenever possible.
