    Just finished up a great road trip through the smoky mountains. We encountered LOTS of traffic and construction at times, so there was a ton of stop and go in this average. This included three spirited "demonstration" test drives for the family (whom we visited on part of the road trip), and a lesson for a Camaro SS. I reset the average fuel economy screen a few times during the trip and bested 25mpg fairly easily, over hundreds of miles, but I left the Trip A alone from the time we left until we got back. If it hadn't been for the traffic jams and mountains, I'd bet that the overall would've been about 24.5mpg. Quite impressive, considering I was lucky to hit 21mpg in my 2006 300C SRT8. I actually saw the "range" over 400 a few times after fill up!

    Nice... Are you the person that had the transmission replaced? If so it's working OK now? How about the lurching issue when parking. Was this you or am I nuts?

    Both me. Transmission behaved fine. No issues with the car overall (except for a bunch of bugs with the nav/radio, which were frustrating at times). I am going to update the lurching thread now, because this trip was the first I drove the car since posting that thread, and I did try a couple of the suggestions.

    Glad your car is back to working well. We all have the Uconnect issues. Uconnect needs more software updates but seems like FCA is working on that with releases.

    Better than my '15 392, it averaged ~21.5mpg during a 950 mile road trip.
