Angry miles per gallon?

Not new to the forum, but new to posting. What I would like to know is if anybody has taken a trip in their Charger of at least 1000 miles and what was your gas mileage. I'm planning a trip from Largo, Fl to the Finger Lakes area in upstate N.Y. in July. The way the gas prices keep rising I might have to mortgage my first born for the trip. And yes, I have the Charger R/T.
Thank you

Highest I ever hit was 19 MPG

That was driving with the AC off at 65 mph for an hour

I dunno how people are claiming 25-26, my average is 16.7 MPG right now
