My average mpg to date (from march 17,2010) for over 15k miles is 16.8mpg, with hemi, 4x4, crew cab and 3:55 gears, i do use 89 octane too. Will be taking an 800 mile round trip over the next few days... so we'll see what we get.

Mileage doesn't sound right . Have you taken it back to the dealer ? Are you figuring your mileage out on paper and doing it correctly ? Why do you want to do gear change ? Just checked your profile and it doesn't say where your from , so I can only assume your here in the states and that your speedo is in mph and not kph .

Hey there's an app for that if you have an iphone its called vehical it works pretty good..

Mixed driving (70% highway, 30% stop & go) I'm averaging around 18.5mpg with the a/c on. The stop & go kills the mileage. I gotta believe I can get 22-23 with nothing but highway riding.

3.21 gears will get you plenty of speed, just not quickly. If you want quick, then forget about mpg.
