Default avg 15 mpg on 05 4x4

I've had it for a month now. First week I got 14.8. Next I got 15.8. Last two weeks I've gotten just above 15. Very conservative with the gas pedal.

Is this about right or should I be getting more?

That's about the same mileage as I've been getting with my '09 5.7L Hemi. Was getting right around 15.5 mpg average with the stock tune. Seems to be going up with the predator, but I haven't had the predator long enough to get some consistent results.
