I've experienced 27.2 and 28.1 MPG on the freeway 'locked' in MDS mode. Will we all get results like that? Of course not, but it does show the potential of the MDS system.
Those of you who don't like MDS should be happy all it takes to disable it is one click of the button on your shifter.

If you really got 28 mpg with 400hp HEMI, I'll eat a cat poop sandwich! You would have to be coasting downhill a 40% grade with a 40 mph wind at your back!

I just got back from vacation, from Canada to florida and back. I tried many ways to see what the best I could get for milage and 21 mpg is the best I could do. All I'm saying is for me to get 28 mpg It would have had to be downhill all the way and be towed by an 18 wheeler

I've gotten as high as 24 @60MPH on a flat road with no wind. If you're getting 28...you must be a Jedi. That's coming more from a place of jealousy, not cynicism lol.

I got 28 once with my QC 4x4....it was with a 40-50 mph tail wind! I actually took pictures of the EVIC just to have as proof.

The part that sucked though was I had to drive into it as a head wind on my way back and it knocked me down to 13. I was just glad I wasn't taking the wind from the side!

I really hate to beat a dead horse and wake this thread up but I read through every post and could not find anything about disabling the MDS on a 2008 Hemi. Is there a way to do this without a tuner??
