My overall average on my 3.6L with 3.21 gears (Crew Cab, 2wd, SLT) is 23.4mpg. That's 3903 miles and 166.97 gallons since I started keeping up with it. I use an app called "Gas Cubby" to track my spending. It also shows your best and worst mpg tanks, and data like "average cost of fill up, miles per dollar, and miles per fill up.

If you're a nerd like me and keep up with those things, this is great.

Four hour round trip on two lane with the cruise control: 24.8 mpg.
Six hour trip without the cruise control on the Interstate: 19.6 mpg.
I have the 3.21 with Hemi.

What speeds were you running? I've found mpg drops significantly beyond 60 mph.

I believe that the 3.21 turns 1500 RPM at around 67MPH, so for best mileage I keep it around 65. On that note, you can put up some pretty impressive mileage numbers around 45MPH on rural roads that have low speed limits and not a lot of stops.

Sorry JSETTLE have not been connected for a bit, to answer your question I have about 4200 miles on it and I am still around the 13-14 mph even though I try to remain conscious to the eco light. Hopping it gets better.

Well before my lift, wheels, and 35" tires I was seeing 18mpg...lol so I was expecting it to drop. Now I'm seeing 13 if I'm conscious of it and 10-11 if I'm not. It sure does look damn good though!

2013 5.7 8-spd HFE R/C shortbed tonneau cover 2WD 3.21 17" tire 1300 miles on odo

my first & only trip in the truck:
just over 200 miles, on the way back from the dealership,
4-8 degrees F, 2-lane roads, cruise on 63 most of the way...

22.1 mpg according to EVIC

tire pressure according to TPMS all 37-8 so each is couple psi low.

I drove *very* conservatively

I just got my 2013 - it was a demo with 4500 miles.

Crew, 6-4 bed, 4x4, 8-speed, 3.21.

Pure highway, 21.5ish. Commute, which is about 50-50 hwy/city getting pummeled around 13.5-14. Weird. Not sure how the demo was driven, but hoping it comes around.

I've been light-footing it for the most part too, so I'm a little surprised.

Winter gas, cold and crappy Goodyears not helping.
