Depends on how you drive. I can get up to 23.5 mpg hwy going 60-65 but in the city the highest average was 14 mpg. I drove from okc to Austin Texas and average 21.5 mpg going 70-73 mph.

Setting cruise around 70-75 gives me around 21 as well. And since most of my driving is highway that's sweet. Get the Hemi. Or better yet go to your local stealer and test drive what you want with the v6 then yet drive an identical model with a v8. There will be no contest.

Thanks for the reports back guys. Yeah we test drove them both and we were highly impressed with the Hemi and thought the v6 kind of lagged and seemed to somewhat struggle pushing the vehicle. I was originally concerned with mpg but 20 on the highway is great, hemi it is.

The highway numbers are good for a Hemi.

No, 89 is recommended (and I think 87 can be used too)

Re: 2011 Hemi MPG
 
Does anyone use 87? There is a big difference in price of fuel from 87 to 89 here in Texas.

Are you guys quoting actual calculated MPG or what the trip computer calculates? On my 04 WJ the trip computer was showing 23.5 MPG on a recent trip. When I calculated by hand it was more like 20 MPG. Just curious.

I know the last 5 or 6 times I've calculated it on my tundra its been exactly the same as what the trip computer said....I was surprised!
