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

Torque is the low-end muscle that gets you out of the blocks when the light turns green. It's the thrust that squashes you into the seat when you hammer the gas. Torque is good. Torque is your friend.
