2011 R/T

worst tank calculated has been 20.5mpg (21.5 on the evic) best 24.5 calculated (25.5 on the evic)

I typically fuel up with about 380 miles on a tank, with about 70 miles distance to empty.

the one highway trip it's gone on (280 miles round trip) the evic stated 26.9mpg.

others have reported all highway trips up to 27.5+ mpg in 2011 and newer chargers.

I average around 22 mpg, but got just shy of 29 mpg on the last long trip.

Get in, sit down, shut up and hold on!!!

You can't buy happiness, but you can buy a HEMI and that's kind of the same thing.

Not enough miles on my new car to really get a good idea due to motor breaking in but my normal base R/T with a fresh chance of 5w20 royal purple full synthetic was regularly averaging 28.4 @ 70mph over a 430 mile drive. Hand calc. Mileage didn't really start getting good until about 4000 + miles for me. Evic read over 29. (That was also without stopping so YMMV.)

the best i ever got on the highways was 27.6 mpg with MDS (before my tuner) my average is 14.6 with MDS off, took the tuner off, so I expect it to go up now!
Honestly I say go with what you want, if you like power, go with the RT if you want a car that will get you there and back, either one will work

I am excited to see these numbers. I am getting my 2013 AWD R/T this weekend but currently have a V6 G8. I am only managing 20-21 mpg average. (17/25 epa estimates). I am thinking I might be able to get close to that maybe 19-20 average. I'd be happy with that considering I am gaining 150 ft. lbs of torque and better gearing.

I have a 2012 R/T AWD with 20" wheels and I'm averaging a solid 19-20mpg tooling around with mixed driving and 23-25mpg highway when keeping it under 70mph.

I'm VERY pleased with the mileage of my car.

All these numbers are subject to driving style. From what I see it looks as though everyone drives like a little old lady! My commute is 30 miles each direction with 15 on the HWY and 15 in town. I averaged 19 before mods, no one beats me off the lights or passes me on the HWY!!!

I was getting better MPG with the stock 2010 R/T than the 2008 3.5L

I averaged about 22-25 mixed, with a best highway of 29mpg.

I changed out the torque converter and switched the rear gears to 3.06 from 2.65, now I get about 18mpg

I did better with my freakin '06 RT than I did with my 2010 SXT, but my 2012 SE knocks them all down...

Before I started having o2 sensor issues I was getting about 25mpg highway and about 18-19 city (hand calculated).
