My MPG went down this summer, i am geting around 13.6 to 14.5. used to be around 16.5 when I first get the truck back in February. 3 things is making my avg worse: 1- AC is on all the time is hot here in Texas 105 today. 2- I notice that with 89 gas my AVG was better than with 87. Probability I will be back to 89 again since I paid 3.349 for 87 yesterday. 3- I stoped to look at the ECO light and try to enjoy the HEMI power, lol.

One thing I've learned is do not trust the MPG reading on the EVIC. It is a bit over optimistic. My EVIC will show I'm averaging around 17mpg, but doing the math, my real MPG is closer to 15.8mpg. I'm running 89 octane, never drive faster than 65mph, mostly highway driving. The killer for me is the 108F temperatures here. Nighttime lows only hitting low 80's, so the A/C is on 100% of the time the truck is running.
