Default Highway Mileage?

Contemplating a long road trip ('bout 1200 miles or so) and was looking to get some input as to what kind of gas mileage to expect (ball park). I have a '13 Sport CC with the HEMI of course and the 6 speed trans. Someone out there in "RamLand" must've been on a nice long road trip before...what kind of mileage did YOU get? Any input would be greatly appreciated...thanks!

In my experience your looking at getting 18 mpg at 80 mph to 25 mpg at 60 mph.

I just took a vacation this weekend, 2 hour away from me, (granted on Wisconsin roads and hills) just cracked 18.0 mpg on the display doing 68mph the whole time. Haven't filled up yet to hand check. I got a '13 1500 SLT QC with 3.55 gears.

**Edit**

Just went to lunch, truck display said 18.4mpg, filled up and hand calculated, came out to 18.48mpg.

There are way too many variables to determine the MPG you may get.

Just do it and report back.

Safe driving.
