Default RT & SXT Gas Mileage?

I would like to hear from RT and SXT owners as to what kind of gas mileage they are really getting in regular mixed driving. Thanks.

With 4300 miles and no reset, I am averaging 21mpg according to the trip computer. I do mostly highway driving but some city as well (probably 65% highway / 35% city).

I am still on my first tank of gas since buying my SXT. But I will let you know.

We're on our third tank. The best we've seen is 16.9 mpg. The trip to work is about 30 miles and is mostly city driving. About 85% city 15% highway. It's better mileage than our Escalade was getting!

i'm getting about 16MPG average on my RT so far, that was on my first tank though so the engine isn't broken in yet, also since it's the summer i've had the A/C on all the time which does hurt the fuel economy some, even it it stays around that i'd still be happy though as it's much better than my dakota which was getting about 11 MPG average.

I'm on uneven terrian in Southern Indiana. It's lots of up and down highways and similar to city driving. I've been pulling 19-20 MPG. If I stay off the gas I can get up to around 21-22 MPG.

Any SXT's out there? I'm considering expanding my intake to work on the SXT too... didn't know if anyone out there wanted one....

I've been getting 15 to 16 but I cannot stay off the gas. I will be taking a trip, 250 miles, that will be all highway driving this weekend. Let you know then.

Got back from my trip. 500 miles through WV and MD via US 68. Very hilly road. Got 23.5 doing between 65 and 70 mph.
