I got my EVIC telling me 23mpg driving through from/around Chicago (using the Ipass lanes) and doing 62mph. It's IL so they drive a bit faster, my wife said 'it feels weird with you driving and everyone passing us'. I wanted to see how high I could get the EVIC to read! Once I got to a 65mph I drove 70 and could only get 22mpg at those rpms.

That's the real issue here. When I can't even make the minimum advertised city mileage driving strictly highway then it makes us angry. If the truck can only get 15 then they should be putting 15.
I'm not sure where you're getting these numbers, but the actual numbers for the 2011 5.7L are 14/20 for the 4x2 (which is almost exactly what I'm getting) and 13/19 for the 4x4.

If MPG's are a concern then the hemi is not for you. I generally drive at what ever the conditions will allow,,,traffic,,weather,,etc. I have seen 10 MPG on my EVIC,,,at 100 mph,,not too bad. I have also driven at 55mph on flat ground with not much traffic and saw over 28 mpg on the EVIC. Really good. It is all how you drive and your habits and your driving conditions. I love my Hemi.

Manualy calculated my tank last night and got 16.1 my highest yet. You have to use a caculater for acurate reading. My truck just turned 2000 miles. It is also great haveing a built in calculater on the dash.

I get 14.5 city in my 2011 crew 4x4 hemi with 3.92 gears. I get 18.0 so far on trips. I use a mixture of 87 and 89 octane. That seems to work for me. My wife has a Prius that gets 52 mpg, so I abuse the HEMI alot.

Default gas mileage

I get between 17 and 17.5 mpg both city and highway. I have the 3.55 gears 4x4. I have gotten over 20 mpg on the highway if I drive easy. Great truck. I am impressed with this truck. Hope you are enjoying yours.
