Maybe I misinterpreted this, I answered 12-13 as that is the best average I get per tank. I have no idea how anyone gets over 20 in one of these trucks. I have tried like hell on a couple of road trips and never averaged over 18 and change and even that was next to impossible with favorable conditions.

I put in a vote for my dad's '09 Hemi 5 speed since the transmission is the same. The best he ever got was 21.5 on a trip to Oklahoma City, but I got 22.7 out of his truck on a similar trip. both trips were made unloaded with 1 driver and 2 passengers.

After only 900 miles on it right now I'm averaging 14-15. I live 3 blocks from work so that's killing it. On the highway(which isn't much at all) I can easily get 19-21 at 70mph. Hitting stop signs is the killer on gas mileage. I also use premium which might help a little on mpg. Better fuel equals a better running engine.

I average around 14L/100km....which is around 20 mpg Canadian. while driving back and forth to work 100k per day at speeds between 80kph and 110kph. [100kph is 62 mph]

I live 3 miles from work and average 15 minutes to go those 3 miles so my mileage pretty much is the worst possible at 15. I only have 2,000 miles on the rig so it probably has some more breaking in to do. The few times I have taken it on the freeway I see around 20.

What the hell am I doing wrong. I set cruise at 76mph and I can't get over 15MPG. I love everything about this truck except I can't get better fuel mileage than my 05 Silvy 5.3 and it had 35" tires. I drive conservative, I haven't roasted the tires since the test drive.

76 mph is the problem. I noticed fuel economy sucks at anything over 110 kph. I do Have 3.92 gears though

On a trip to OBX I managed to get my average up to 19.3 @ about 65 on the hwy pulling a 1500 lb trailer....needless to say, I was wasn't happy that I got there before I could get her up to 20 Either way, I was very pleased considering I have the 3.92 gears too
