I've done that a few times myself. Takes lots of restraint with 390 horses under the hood!

I gave up on that battle about three trucks ago. I'm on my 10th tank of gas in this one and just saw it creep to 15 today for first time. Of course I drive about 90% city.
When I want good numbers I hop in my civic for work and get over 30

I guarantee he has a 32 gallon gas tank because I can get that easily as well especially if you do a lot of HWY driving. I think my best was taking a 4.5 hour round trip to lake Charles and filling up gave 571 dte.

that's the good thing about my ST...I can't look at anything but a gas pump to see what my mpgs are....but if I was worried about mpgs I wouldn't own two gas guzzling Hemi's

Reset it when I filled up about 120 mile trip I was up to 21.4 but with all the stop light on my way to the house it lost 1 mpg. You have to baby it staying around 55mph to 60mph and some short 60mph but that is with about 1/2 hills and 1/2 flat rode. Yes it is a 32 gal tank hurts every time I fill it up at 3.79+ a gallon because it is almost a $100.00 a tank.

But it will do it if you do not use cruse control because it takes a lot of manipulation of the gas petal to do it. But as soon as you get into town with a lot of stop and go it really eats up you millage. You have to drive like a old man in the slow lane I hope when a tuner finally comes out I can do the same going 65mph and 70mph
