Default Hemi 8 Speed Fuel Mileage So Far?

I haven't seen a thread asking 8 speed owners what they are currently getting.
So if anyone who has an 8 speed Hemi would like to provide some information below that would be great.

Truck Type (sport)
4x4 or 4x2
Cab Type
Bed Length
Type of terrain you drive in (mountains, flat, mixed)
How many miles
Current Fuel Mileage Unloaded
Current Fuel Mileage Loaded
If loaded please put estimated weight

Thank you.

I am in the middle of purchasing my next truck so this information would be great. Also if I missed a thread like this while searching sorry for the double post.

Type of terrain you drive in: flat
How many miles: have only driven about 300 miles so far

Important to note that I have yet to fuel up or reset my trip meter or mpg meter. Im waiting to do that when I do my first fillup. The only thing I have noticed though is that the MPG has only been going up.

As long as you don't do a bunch of idling, the EVIC is pretty accurate. Those are some great numbers guys. Madhatr02 has 4x4 and CC and is getting better than my RCSB!! It should go up a good bit as they get a few thousand miles on them. Not to get off topic but how's the shifting in them? I was thinking I would get tired of it constantly changing gears.

I don't feel the shifting outside of the first two gears at takeoff. You can hear the engine change on shifts but I can't feel it.
