I do all highway miles, but most of that is bumper to bumper city traffic. I average 22 MPG in my Stage 3 SRT.

I think it's funny that most people now a days is worried about the best MPG, so lets go purchase the latest model out there that just so happens to get the same MPG as a Neon...lol

Safety regulations and emissions causing car weights to go up and efficiency to go down.

My R/T averages low 20's to low 30's. Bone stock. Has everything but leather and sunroof. I have a daily commute of 50 miles round trip, mostly freeway. It varies so much because some days, the morning rush hour is stop-n-go, then there is the occasional accident that really jams everything up.

I've seen your driving style and I can't imagine that's it. Your cars must just be poorly maintained!

I was gonna say that the dodge dart commercial says 41mpg, but that's with the 1.4l and a 6 speed so it doesn't really count. The 2.0 and 2.4 versions get the same mileage as we do. I guess that's about as efficient as you're gonna get with the little 2.0 engines.

Don't feel too bad about your fuel mileage, Rog, my R/T averages in the mid to high 20's. Last two tanks were 25. My problem is that i have to drive on a freeway to work that gets jammed just about everyday. The drive home is usually better, as i wait til 1900 to go home. Fridays in the summer are usually better. I'm planning a tuneup this summer, hopefully, the fuel mileage will get better.

Are you guys basing your mpg off how many miles you go on a tank? If so you may be getting an extra 1-2mpg better than you think. Once you hit empty you still have a gallon of gas left, so there is probably another 30-40 miles left you could add to your total.

Miles between fills. When I changed to larger tires on my Jeep, I had to use a formula to get true miles, since the odometer wasn't accurate anymore. I have it on stock sized tires for now. But the hypermiler crowd have all that info and more.

I simply divide the miles I drove since my last fillup, by the gallons I put in on a fill up. I try to use the same pumps everytime too. Not just the same station.

So it looks like the lights and pushbar cost me about.8 MPG loss...Acceptable.

The same here, miles between fills. That is part of the formula, anyways.

Currently averaging 31-32mpg, 95% highway miles. On my four hour drive to work the first 30 minutes is 55mph, then 90 minutes at 70, then the final 100-120 minutes is 55mph. Twice in the last three months I've managed to get 34.3!

Just wanted to add a note here;
Last week, i had the opportunity to watch the live data on my R/T. Had my scantool home to work on my 95, decided to see if i could see anything with the data graphing ability that the scantool has. Found that the upstream O2 sensor is switching rather slowly, tending to the high side(3.55v). I'm thinking that the slow switching, while still w/in the parameters, is indicative of a sensor that is worn out, and needs to be replaced. That may explain the fuel mileage that i've been getting. I am going to get a new upstream O2 sensor sometime in the next month or two, when i get a little free cash. The pricing is averaging right around $40.00, for both the 15" and the 18" versions.
That's for both Autozone and my dealer sources. I just discovered that Rockauto is half the price, even with shipping. I am going to go with NTK, who is the oem supplier.
Now i have to figure out which length to order. :-k

I got my downstream O2 sensor from Amazon. They seemed to have the best deal when I checked. I think it was around $27-$28. The upstream sensors were similarly priced IIRC.
