Default first road trip mpg,s

took our first small 325 mile road trip today in our new ram 1500 4x4 hemi.over rolling hills some straight stretches and i think it did good at avg.75mph on cruise it got 17.9 hand calculated vs. the lie-o-meter of 18.5 mpg.we filled before and after at the same sinclair station with mid-grade 89 octane-10% ethanol.so what you guys think?only have 540 miles on it now so should improve over time.love the power for passing semis on the 2 lane roads. also 3.55 rear-end.

If you avoid the gas with ethanol....you will get better mileage.
