I have the Hemi/8spd/3.92/CC/6'4 setup and I'm seeing a consistent 15.5-16.5mpg for city driving (evic reading on the trip meter but I'll hand calc the next few tanks to see how close it is). That said, I tend to be pretty easy on the throttle and I haven't really mashed the pedal. I've had it on the highway for less than 40 miles out of the 460 so far and I have to keep it at 65 to see numbers in the low 20's on the instant mpg gage.

For the life of my truck (3,500 KM's), I'm at 19 mpg. 60% back country roads

I have the Hemi/6spd/3.55/QC/6'4 and I struggle to get over 14.5 anywhere. I'm at 4000 miles and beginning to come to the conclusion that I'm a shitty driver and this isn't going to get any better. Oh well.

That's weird. I suspect I'd be able to get over 20 in time, but I just ordered new bigger, heavier tires, so I'm expecting my mileage to start to get worse

My 2013 Laramie QC with Hemi 8 speed and 3.92 gears is averaging 20.5 mpg. I have 4,600 miles on the truck now. Drove 600 miles on Monday, mostly with the cruise set on 75 and averaged 20.8 mpg through rolling interstate

I didn't know the 2013 was going to offer the CC in a 6'4" box. Do you have a 2500?

14.8 adjusted to 15.4 with oversized tire formula to adjust for change in RPM.

This went up about 2mpg after I hit 6,000 miles....seriously, I was at 12-13 something on the same roads every day.

I also drive too aggressively.

If I really baby it I get around 13.2-13.5 mpg, but that's no fun.
Same here. 99% of my driving is short trip, stop and go. With winter blend gas, I average around 12. Summer blend, around 13.5. And, yes. Why baby a 400 hp truck?

I am at 3200 miles if that makes a difference.
Check out this site http://pure-gas.org find a pure gas dealer near you and buy a full tank of 100% gas (no ETHANOL) and watch your mpg increase at least 10% (or more).
