I drive a 2005 Durango Hemi. My gas millage in the city is 15.7 M/G.US and on the hiway 21.5M/G.US. I have checked my gas millage on a weekly basis over the last 5000 miles. Total millage on the Durango is only 10.500KM or 65625 miles. I hope this helps.

I have checked my gas mileage on a weekly basis.

#6 of 25 mpg accuracy
Oct 22, 2006 (4:39 pm)
I've been pretty lazy about doing a proper 'full to full' MPG check with our 2001 4.7L Durango so the following numbers are based on the trip computer: We average around 14 mpg for my wife's soccer-mom driving style (50/50 highway/city) driving. If I drive like an MPG freak I can hit 18 MPG on the highway.
Does anyone know how accurate the trip computer is for MPG?
#7 of 25 2006 5.7 Hemi

I'm getting 14 mpg in town (lead foot)
19 mpg hwy 60 mph
17 mpg 75mph
This truck only has about 2K miles on it, so it is really not fully broke in. I hope to improve some.

We just purchased an 06 Durango SLT 5.7 Hemi. I have heard that the Gas mileage will improve once the engine is broken in, and from viewing your posts, I would have to agree because we are certainly not getting that kind of gas mileage. It is equipped with the MDS, so can anyone please give me a general idea of when we should expect to have reasonable gas mileage?
#9 of 25 Fuel Milage Computer
Dec 21, 2006 (11:47 am)
The computer is a farce. It tells you what milage your are getting at the time you look at it, not an overall milage. Usually when you look at the computer it is during ideal conditions, down hill, or some other condition. You need to have an overall milage check. The computer can not do that. That is why all these great fuel milages are reported. It's not a true milage evaluation.
