Default Hypermile this!!!

So took a nice little trip this weekend with Snow White and on the way home actually payed attention to the gas milage




My EVIC when hand calc'd is usually around .1-.3 high, so its close.

This was with the cruise set around 60-65 over a 180 mile distance. Elevation was 200 ft lower at the start than it was when i got home (my headunit tells me that random kind of stuff)


The only performance mods are
1 7/8 long tube headers
2.5" true duals

Now remember I also have:

A full tank of gas
2 retardedly high output alternators
~200lbs of camping stuff in the bed
easily 160lbs of stereo equip in the backseat
an 80lb dog
a 130lb passanger
and the 3.92 gears



Needless to say, all those little 4 cylinder econo boxes can move the eff over cuz the Hemi ran the train tonight!!

I'm calling bull. I've had mine read like 80mpg before when I reset it rolling down a hill. You obviously just filled up seeing as you had 395 MTE and you probably just reset it and snapped the pic.

If you do the math 27.5 x a full tank is well over 600 mile. 395/27.5 = ~14.4 which im prettys ure is less and then EVIC takes into account when calculating the DTE

I also have pictures from 25MPG all the way through 27.5 lol
