Wow! This mpg is way cool, especially at 82 mph. I essentially have the same set-up, except mine is a SLT Bighorn edition. I'm a first time Dodge owner too. I love driving this truck.

i think the evic is a good measure for instantaneous mpg, the more you fluctuate your speed the more room for error you have with it. if you do an entire tank at a single speed it is pretty accurate i've found.
