Best so far (only 1780 miles on the truck) is 19.4mpg over a 6 hour round trip going 68mph. Of course this is on Wisconsin roads/constant hills.

So far the results are rather surprising. I was looking for at least a few that were in the 24-25 plus range.

I made 1200 mile round trip to Pensacola Fl back in July and my trip average was 18.2 and I cruised about 80 mph with myself and the girlfriend plus luggage and a cooler of miller lite but general driving only get about 16.7 mpg this is better than my 2010 Chevy 5.3 pos that would get only 15 on a good day. I have a 4x4 ram quad cab with the hemi 20" wheels.

i voted for the 24-25 mpg range as that was about my best achievement...

i just copied this from a thread i posted last week... here's my result...


The details:
99.9% hwy miles
87 octane fuel w/10% ethanol
light tail wind out of the south
Between 52-54 degrees outside temp
mostly flat road with a few small to medium hills
elevation between 750'-950' above sea level
cruise set at 60 mph
from full (automatic pump shut off) drove 131 miles and took back on 5.2 gallons (automatic pump shut off)
Truck EVIC calculated 24.1 with hand calculation of 25.2.
granted I was only doing 60 mph but I wanted to see what I could achieve at this speed. Overall pretty happy with the results.

should add: 5.7, crew cab, 4x4, 3.55 rear, 6 speed

I just re-read the question and realized I answered incorrectly. I used my truck's lifetime MPG instead of its best MPG. Of course, to be really technical it's best MPG is well over 100 mpg when I'm at freeway speeds and then take my foot off the gas. Doesn't last long, though...

Took trip from Maryland to Michigan... pulled into destination in Michigan with 22.1 showing on the dash, on the trip back to Maryland pulled into the driveway with 23.1 showing.

Putting around town... I'm averaging 16 mpg
