I routinely got 19.5-20.1 mpg on I-75 between Ann Arbor and Midland. Set the cruise control to 70mph. That was EVIC reading. Have checked using hand calculator method and it's within 0.5-1 mpg on several tests.
Now I use the EVIC value for relative HEMI performance, not absolute values and the miles-to-empty calculation. When the fuel tank is empty, mpg's are irrelevant.
