    I found on pretty flat freeway, I could get about 20.5 per gallon at 67-68mph, cruise on. Over 70 and the mpg came down.
    In mixed congested/town traffic, I struggle to do better than 15.5mpg.

    Idle kills the numbers. Also, trying to baby the throttle hurts too; just get up and GO... then ease off.

    I've seen similar numbers as well, driving back home from Chicago through Wis. Had plenty of time and it was a beautiful day so I set the cruise about 67-68, by the time I got to Escanaba I was at 22mpg....then I hit road construction on US-2, ended up just under 20mpg when I pulled in the driveway.

    Any mods will give marginal increase in mpg... At best, if you can increase mpg by 2 you will save $3k in gas over 100,000 miles not including cost of the mod. Your life will not change, you will not even notice this $
    Do a mod bc you like it
    haha stop worrying about mpg, get a bigger fuel tank and enjoy the 5.7
