Mine is very new, but am seeing 18-20 mpg on computer almost all the time...and that is average. I know this is probably very premature and haven't done any hand calculations yet. It's getting much better than my 06 with 3.92's I have a quad cab

My 6000 lb. Longhorn gets about 14-15 mpg with a mix of 80% city, 20% highway. I got a best of 22 mpg over a 120 mile drive most of which was at about 60 MPH. The first 20 miles was at about 50 MPH with stop lights every 1-3 miles. The last 10 miles was freeway at about 70 MPH. That's with a crew cab, Hemi, 8-speed and 3.92 gears.

I'm at 11 mpg overall after 6000 miles. Many of those miles were pulling a large trailer. Was getting 15 city before winter. This should easily do 20 mpg on a trip when not pulling.
Just pulled my 28' enclosed trailer 600 miles... got 10.5 mpg. That's 2 mpg better than my 2005 Ram with 3.92s. I wanted the 3.55s, but glad I ended up with these gears. Stays in 7th gear (OD) for nearly the entire way I pulled trailer.

I get 15-16 mpg on my 45 mi daily commute (40% city, 60% Hwy). I have the 6 speed tranny too so I'm sure the 8 speed probably does at least 1 better.

Max I've gotten it up to was 21.9 on a 400 mi trip....I was so mad when I arrived before I could get it to 22
