Bone stock, I got about 14 in the city and 19-20 on the highway

Unlifted, running superchips 91 tune with MDS disabled I got about 14 in the city and 20-21 on the highway.

Lifted, running predator 93 tune with MDS disabled I get 13 in the city and 18-19 on the highway.

I'm running the RRO 2.25" lift with 255/70/18 tires (32"). Also have the Hemi. All of my MPG's are calculated - not using the EVIC. Also I keep my speed between 65 and 70 on the interstate. This last trip to FL however I went about 76-77 the whole way and still got 18.

If you are worried about MPG's, sell it and get a car.

Is your speedo corrected from the tire size? Is that what your display says or did you do the calc.

With my CRD I just made a trip on the highway with a high point of 22mpg. Averaged about 18.5 though. That was at 80mph the whole way only really stopping to fuel up. Get about 16mpg in the city. Should go up a bit come summer time with the switch to summer blend diesel though.

Speedometer is corrected for the tires and I'm running the OME kit with 265/70/R17 Cooper Discoverer S/T's which are relatively aggressive though not quite MT's. Pretty impressed.

Yes - my speedo and shift points have been corrected. I'm running the AEV EGR module designed to correct that along w/ the steering geometry.

I did not calc it myself - just going off what my display says

is that for the Gen 2 4.7? Also what does that do to my warranty?

i have a lifetime wrap around and the last thing i want to void is the motor. I have blown 3 motors in the last 3 years. My gen 1 4.7 in my 99 twice.

and i may be getting closer to that mileage if i was doing 60. I am rarely doing under 80 on the highway and hit 90+ more often then i should.

plus my route to work has a lot of lights so i'm stop and go for 20 miles a day. I take a different route home that is more highway but the ride in kills my mileage.

Gen 1 4.7 (2005) this will not effect your warranty one bit, the tuner retains your stock tune so if you need to take it in all you would have to do is plug in and put it back to stock.
