Charger R/T models - Your best MPG?

I am looking for a Charger SXT Plus because of the fuel economy. I drive 100 miles each day for work, mostly HWY. I cannot find an SXT model in my area with the features and color I want, but a nearby dealer does have an R/T Max model. My concern is fuel economy. Can anyone share real experiences with fuel economy in the R//T models? Thanks!

With my 2006 GoMango Charger R/T Daytona I get between 19 and 22 average. My high has been 28 on a trip back from South Carolina.

I get around 28 mpg on my daily commute, which is usually around 15-20 minutes of driving 60 mph on a two lane highway. However, my in town driving consists of lots of stop signs and red lights, which brings the average down to about 18-19 mpg, which was roughly what I was getting with my 07 SXT.

My commute is 88 miles round-trip, and on a good week, I get 20 mpg combined.

There's a small hit for having AWD, but until this week, it hasn't been cold or rainy enough for AWD to kick on for more than a few minutes.

2013 R/T track pack. So far I've been averating 18-19 mpg in mostly citiy driving.

On the highway you could easily get 25mpg+ in 4 banger mode with the HEMI.

If the dealer is willing to make a deal, I say go for it as the HEMI is a ton of fun to drive.
