I got my 2012 CC 4x4 about three weeks ago and made a 2500 mile trip the same week. At 74 mph I averaged 17 mpg. At home now I average 16-17 mpg. I love my truck.

I have a 2012 1500 4x4 crew cab short bed with a 4.7L. In mixed driving I average 15 to 17 MPG. On highway stretches with no traffic (rare here in NY) I've seen 21 MPG. I am pleased with that after getting used to a 2009 Jeep with a 6 cylinder getting 18 MPG max (due to its full time 4wd). Extra power and similar and/or better mileage...I'll take it.

I traded in an 04 Dakota Quad cab 2wd 4.7 averaged about 16-16.5 in town, Bought a 2012 Crew Cab Ram 1500 with a 5.7, averaging 17.5 - 18 in town. I've NOT had it on the highway for a long drive. I have about 5500 miles on it now, running Mobil 1 since 1200 miles. Other than a few interior mods, all stock (so far) <G>

I have a Hemi, Quad Cab, with 3.92, 4wd.

Around town average is 16 - - Hwy. varies based upon speed, but at Hwy. limits I have had one tank at 21 mpg.

As you know, it depends on how you drive - - I take it pretty easy around town - - with the hemi, it is soo quick, that I would exceed the speed limit quickly if I punch it.

Best that I've gotten on a tank = 19.8 mpg. Averages 16 or so. 180,000 on my hemi, probably she's broken in by now.
