Exactly my problem as well...with the Gibson exhaust and Volant cold air kit it only gets better

Re: Happy with my HEMI choice!

While I would have appreciated the mileage available with the Ecodiesel...which wasn't available when I bought my MY12 Summit...I'm also very pleased with my Hemi and honestly, tickled with the fuel economy I am getting. ~16 mpg in general rural driving and 20-23 mpg on the highway. (No, I'm definitely not a lead foot...)

Agree Jim mileage has definitely been a pleasant surprise.

Pics and videos please! I'm thinking about the Volant and an exhaust. Not sure which CAI to get yet. Send me a private message if you can so we don't hijack this thread

Look at your hard buttons on your center head consol. The Eco button is there in the center.

Every time I merge on to the highway my wife rolls her eyes and says, "All I can see in my mirror are dollar bills flying out of the exhaust!"

I came from an Magnum RT with the Hemi. The power is still there in my '11 Overland, but the gearing is radically different. Still a ton of fun to get on it, though.
