In town, week to week, without towing...getting a highly respectable 16-17. I couldnt be happier.

My HEMI gets the same milage as my wifes 5.0 in her F150 4x4....and my truck is more powefull

I run 100% gas in both trucks. No ethanol.

Here's some good news. 2013 5.7 4x4 crew, Edmonton Alberta to jasper ab, set cruise at 125km(80mph). One stop along the way. Dropped speed twice going through 80kms zones. Averaged 12.8L/100kms..... About 18mpg. Note the hiway way is very up and down all the way. Few nice stretches that go flat....very impressed.

Total Kms travelled, about 650-700....not sure exactly, forgot to look
Used about 3/4'tank of 91 octane.

My average over the last 3 tanks is coming in just over 17 and this is a combination of city and highway driving. No extended highway trips.

Just hit 6000 miles. Average since driving off the lot is 19.6 mpg with 75% Freeway, 25% city, best performance is 23mpg with 85% freeway 15% city cruise control at 55mph. Light foot driving most of the time obviously, occasional competitive driving dropped in 4th and 85 top speed for fun moment.
Love my 3.55: wild when I want it, mild and great gas mileage for a truck this big when I decide. Best of both worlds.

On my 14 5.7 hemi express I now have 1400 miles on her. The best I have gotten so far is 17.9 mpg. I have a 75 mile round trip commute, hwy/city. I am very happy with this truck.

All you folks keep in mind, as long as we continue to "sugar" our fuel tanks with ethanol, mileage will stink. Our 05's with 3:92 gears averaged 19-20 on the road(pre-ethanol. Now 16-17. our 12's with 3:92 born with ethanol heartburn 16-17 same gears same tires. Your mileage will vary depending on how strong alcohol content is at pump fill time. Good for the farmers BAD for anything that runs on gas. Doubts? spring for the extra money and buy a tank of Non-ethanol! Ask your buddies with motorcycles, they hunt for non-E station pump. "Picker"

My '06 is probably averaging between 14 - 16 mpg. The highest I've seen it is probably 17.

Ram Hemi and extended cab 2wd and 3.55 gears...22.3 driving from the Phoenix, AZ area to Logan, Utah. back seat was loaded.....likewise the bed, but nothing showing above bed rails. A lot of that was 75-80, I-15 in Utah has a lot of 80MPH stretches. I use regular, and at high altitudes that means 85 Octane.

Tomorrow we are traveling from Logan, UT to Idaho Falls, ID round trip, the "classic test trip" for our vehicles. I will do a hand calculation to see how close the computer is to actual.
