    I have just returned from a road trip in my 04 SRT10. it was mainly highway driving and I got it down to 14 litres to 100 kilometres average or something like 16 mile per gallon, which I didn't think it was to bad for a ROE supercharged truck.

    14L/100km = 20.17 Imperial miles per gallon.

    Yeah that's good for SC
    I have a NA truck and only a smidge better. I have seen 12's on the Canterbury Plains but not on this tune

    Just off the Dyno and even more fuel waste being stopped. There we go 12.3l/100km 19.12 mpg

    The auto in the QC kills that. I'm lucky to see 12.

    The RC's are lighter too. Our speed limit in NZ is 100kph approx 60mph so I can now putt along at 1200rpm in 6th

    Yeah, about 500 pounds or so if I heard right.

    Our speed limits in the states are a little higher, and I'm not always the best at following the rules. :D
