    I have a Ram Tradesman with a 4.7 v-8. It gets 22-23 MPG on a good day while traveling unloaded. I didn't have to pay a gas guzzler tax on it when I bought it. Took the Hellcat on vacation this week. When we were cruising we put it in Eco mode.

    IMG_0497.jpg I got 24.8 mpg on a 1000 mile round trip in my Hellcat in Eco mode! (Don't tell the guys I was driving in Eco Mode, I might get kicked off the forum!!) That's barely sipping gas, let alone guzzling!!
    Have fun!

    I don't care if they flame the hell out of me....I like to drive around in ECO with street suspension/traction. Any other mode is one button press away. Meantime it is much easier to drive around with others in this much mellowed state. Still plenty of power to get around in traffic.

    Why do we pay gas guzzler tax? Amazing. My 2011 Nissan Altima was giving me 16 mpg in town. No gas guzzler for that !!! hahaha
