I have a 2006 RT RWD. I use 89 octane. Most of my driving is city traffic, and I usually average around 16 - 17 mpg. When I did drive some highway mileage, I would average around 18 - 19 mpg. But, now that summer is here and it's getting hotter out, I'm finding my mpg dropping when using the AC. So, I'm probably around 14 - 15 mpg city when using AC. So, with gas prices, I just have to sweat a little more!

I have 2005 SXT with the 3.5 V6. I live in Louisiana, so the A/C is on year round even if it's cold out because it's so dang humid you have to keep it on turned to hot to defog the windows. I have been getting about 20 in town and 23 hwy which I am very pleased with. I don't drive like a granny either! Granted it's not the 32 I got with my old Geo Prizm, but I'll take it! At least I can compete in traffic now!

Gas mileage. Rated 17-24. My all round driving mpg is 16.5, on total miles. I have gotten 23.3 on the highway, but was traveling right at 60 mph. Any time you get up to around 70 the mileage goes down. On a recent trip, going between 65-75 mph, I got 20.5 mpg. I consider that good, considering the 340 HP engine. This Magnum is probably the quietest car I have ever owned. No wind noise at all, rides great on the highway, too.

I just got my black pearlcoat magnum SXT RWD over Memorial Day weekend. I LOVE this car. The wife calls it our gangster car. It is the most quiet, smooth riding car I've ever driven. I drive 114mi round trip every day 30/70 city/hwy and I no longer need a nap after the long commute. If I keep it 70mph and under, I get 25, but that's really difficult in this car since it handles and rides like a dream. I'm getting the front windows tinted tomorrow to match the rear, then I think I'll change my last name to Soprano

I just purchased a new 05 RT and am experiencing only 18-19 mpg on the highway. I drive 135 miles a day with all but 15 miles or so on the highway and am averaging around 70-75 mph. Can I expect my mpg to go up as the engine breaks in or is 18-19 the real average mpg on these cars? I didn't buy the car for the gas mileage on my commute but I am hoping that the window sticker average is somewhat close.

Mine had only 1500 miles when I took a 1200 mile trip about the same speeds as you and quite a few spurts to get around people. My first tank got 20mpg but my second got almost 23. Both using manual figuring. I have also noticed much better acceleration since I passed 2500 miles, give or take a few.
#8 of 36 2005 R/T Gas Mileage

I just bought a 2005 R/T showroon demo which had ,5000 miles on it. I now have 7,800 miles on it. My mileage is not good so far - 13-14 around town and a maximum of 17.5 on the highway (cruise control at 75mph on the NY State Thruway). I have a ski box on the roof and four continental high speed rated snows. The dealership checked the car over - they think its the ski box and snows that are driving the MPG way down. Am I expecting too much? My previous car - a 2000 Saab 9-5 Aero Wagon - showed no drop in MPG with snows and a ski box.

Don't remember where I read it, was an article about gas mileage, might have been cr. The roof box will definately effect your mileage.

My RT gets 25 mpg at 65 cruise, 27 mpg at 55 cruise, and 17 mpg in mixed driving. Maybe the Amsoil, K&N, and 22" tires help!??!
