Default Actual Miles per Gallon on the Highway

I drive a lot of highway miles. I know the Hemi is rated to 20mpg - are you guys getting this out of your 2010 or 2011 trucks? Anybody getting any better or worse?

Thanks.

On Sunday I got a surprise the milage actually climbed to 22.1 on the evic that was with speed control set at 65 for about 40 miles. It was the first time I had seen that. Going back home after driving country back roads and several stops it came back down to just over 18 on the freeway. 2009 crew with 3.92.

The highest I've gotten was 19.2 mpg, it was a 60 mile trip each way, for three days (training for work). All 3 days were very consistent. My usual commute to work (back roads) is about 13.5 - 14.0 mpg (3.92 gears)

I went to San Diego this weekend from Sacramento, about 1000 miles round trip. I avg 18.8 MPG going 80 MPH. I think thats great! I can get over 20 MPG if I cruise at 65. My last truck was an 2008 Lifted Tundra and I would get less then 12 MPG @ 65 MPG and if I go to So Cal in it I would AVG 10 @ 80 MPH. I love my RAM!

Just got back from a day trip and started the trip on 89 octane and the EVIC showed 18 mpg, averaged 70 mph and went from 600 ft above sea level to 4000 ft above sea level and back. By the end of the trip had the EVIC calculating 19.5 mpg. The climb up dropped the mpg to 16.3 mpg and the manual calculation at the end of the trip showed actual 20.4 mpg. Not bad considering the trip up was against a 40 mph head wind, well I also had that as a tail wind going home.
