My new power wagon loves gas. I get under 9 mpg around town, and 10-11 on the highway. It has 4.56 gears and 35" tires. It has 500 miles on it.

I ran another tank through it and it calculated to 17.7MPG...best so far. It gets better mileage with mid grade than regular for whatever reason.

I have a 2010 slt crew 4x4 with 5.7l hemi. only 1500kms on her so far its fairly cold here in ottawa and the truck is not broken in, and I am averaging 19.2l/100kms I wish that I will eventualy get that 16.5-17l mark. because right now I am disapointed. I baby it a lot trying to keep the eco light on has much has possible. I can't really see the truck gainning 2l/kms once its broken in...

Cold weather will reduce your fuel economy, wait untill untill it warms up and check again...

The service tech at my dealer told me a fantastic story about a computerized breakin period that richens your fuel mixture until about 12,000miles. And then it leans out some more at 30,000mi. So in otherwords, come back some other year and we'll discuss it.
