I have an 06 hemi ...and im getting about 14mpg right now in the winter...my avg usually floats around 15 i do mostly highway. You really have to reset it every time you want your reading. When i do this on the highway im normally floating around 18-20 then city is like 13. You have a CAI and exhaust those will help a little but the best way is watch your right foot.

I have a '99 5.2 with 186,000 miles. Only had her a week so not sure on the average mileage but I did fill the tank completely and got around 400+ miles before she hit 8th of a tank and the orange fuel light came on. Hope that helps.

My 07 Ram was just purchased and I've now gone through my 2nd "official" tank.
During the first tank my calculation came out to 13.5 mpg doing mostly work commute at 70-75 mph over a 90 mile round trip.

On the second tank I tried to be very conscience of fuel economy and did the same commuting with Cruise Control locked in at 65 mph whenever possible.
That tank calculated out to be 14.7 mpg.

I'm thinking I will just drive the Hemi like a Hemi and fore go the 1 mpg that I save when going easy.

I also run Lucas Fuel injector cleaner every other tank, seems to run a bit better with that.

Not doing real well with mileage right now . I think with the cold temps , the extreme snow fall we've had , and the oxygenated fuel , it's killing me . Last time I checked was around 7.6 mpg .
