I get about 21 city/highway mixed. Not long after I got mine I drove from Memphis to Nashville and averaged 25 round trip. That was driving 75 and sometimes 80. I have 3.73s also. And that was figuring with a calculator. Not the reading on the dash.

I get pretty decent mpg, around 13-16 in town. (Lead Foot Syndrome) When I do get on the highway it's for about 200 miles I used to average about 27.4 mpg at 80-85. 3.31 rear gearing. I'll update when the magnum xl an 4.10 gears are in.

13.4 on a 13 MT with 3.73s and 93 octane at 4k miles, mostly city, I guess, cause highway trips in CT are pretty short and I work/live in the same town. Im curious what Ill get on a longer trip b/c 13.4 sucks. The miles are fun, though...maybe a little too much fun for my wallet.

I average 19-22mpg. Its a pretty even mix of highway and city driving. The most i seen was 27mpg on a road trip to the beach. Cruise was set at 65mph for about a hour or so.

I average about 16-19 on a good day (mostly city driving). Prolonged highway I have averaged around 26.

93 octane, JLT CAI + Bama tuned.

There is a huge difference in MPG between granny shifting it and having some fun.

Wow, someone else who actually drives the car! hahaha. Averaging in the 20's on a highway commute, okay. But these people saying they get 18-20+ in the city? Either you are full of it, or drive like a grandma. I averaged 12.2 on my last tank of city driving.

Re: MPG-MPG

2012 6speed 3.31s 5.0 I'm averaging about 23-24mpg mixed driving with a good bit of hwy. Use fuelly.com to track it if you really care to keep track. I use it and never base my MPG off of what the car says.

Re: MPG-MPG

I got about 1000 miles on my 2013 5.0 and I'm getting between 17-18. Some highway driving then mashing it on some back roads for the enjoyment!
