Bought my 2010 4.7L quad cab either the last day of January 2011 or first day of February 2011 (can't remember). It now has roughly 54,000 miles. My realistic average mpg is about 17-18 mpg and it's probably more than 90% city driving. When we travel all highway I can very easily do 20-21 mpg average, my best average was 22.5 mpg.

It is hard to define average mpg's. I track every drop of gas that goes into my RAM. This year I am averaging 13.57 mpg. I have had as high as 18.76 mpg and as low as 9.65 mpg. I just got back from Mississippi on Monday. I live in Walbridge,Ohio. Outside of Toledo,Ohio. The round trip was over 1600 miles and I averaged 16.5 mpg for the entire trip. There was a cold front from Ohio to the gulf and temps were in the 20's all the way down and half the way back. My buddy drove and he was doing between 70-75 mph both ways. There were 5 of us and we had luggage. I am pretty happy with the mpg's we got.

My 2009 QC scaled at 6300 pounds with most of my gear in it, empty it weighs 5300

On flat land, no wind, i get 18 MPG at 70 MPH
dirty air cleaner it drops to 17.4 MPH at 70 MPH
Once you go above 70, 15 mpg is normal

I bought my 5.7L Crew Cab in November 2010 and have about 20,000 miles on it. I get about 15 mpg in my normal drive which is mostly rural highway and country roads, with a little bit of in town driving thrown in.

2010 CC 4x4 Hemi
K&N Drop In
Magnaflow
Bully Dog GT (no significant difference in fuel mileage, but only installed 60 days)

Purchased October 2010, 70k miles (my truck is my national office).

Mileage varies - a LOT.

Highway only at 62, no wind, flat road - 20.8 (have seen as high as 21.5)
Highway only at 62, windy and/or hilly - 19
Highway only at 72, no wind/hills - 18
Highway only at 75, no wind/hills - 17.6
Highway only at 75, windy/hilly - 16.4
Highway only at 80, 15.7
Towing two-horse steel bumper pull trailer, loaded - 12.2 (very happy with that one)
All around average includes city, 15.6
Winter is MUCH worse because I like my remote start, and I refuse to scrape ice! Remote start will kill your gas mileage.
