MPG For New Rebel

I just picked up a 2017 Rebel two days ago. It had 112 miles at pick up and I am now over 200 miles. I have noticed a horrible MPG. I understand itís a 5.7 liter Hemi and it will eat fuel up fast, but I'm averaging 14.5 mpg and that's highway/city street/rural roads. Is there a break in period where I will see a decrease in MPG and then eventually see it get better?

A side note, itís been in the low 20's in the morning time and evening when I am commuting mostly.

Thanks!

Many of us have seen a little better mileage after the 3,000 mile point. Generally, people seem to run about 16 before then, and about 17 after. In winter, of course, that drops some because of fuel additives.

I'd say your mpg is pretty normal for the amount of miles that you have on your truck!

I hear you there... Its so hard not to floor it while passing some knuckle head on the highway going way under the speed limit. I am so impressed with the low end torque and the loud rumble of the exhaust. FCA did good with the stock exhaust in my opinion.

I agree with the good sounding exhaust. I had a 2003 Ram with the Hemi and it sounded terrible. Nothing beats duals from the factory either.

Yeah, I have about 1,000 miles on mine (2016 Mopar 16 Rebel) right now and I averaging about 15-16 mpg. It's winter and still breaking in, so I hope it gets better. My 2014 Sport was averaging around 17-18 in the winter and 19-20 in the summer....it had 35,000 miles when I traded it in last month.

That sounds about like what I get. I have about 3k on my 2016 Rebel. It’s a lot better than my 2004 5.7 Hemi Sport. I also know that idling KILLS your mpg. Lots of stop lights and acceleration from a stop will bring mine down to 13/14. At trains, I kill the motor. Coasting to yellow/red lights helps too.

Mine was terrible at about 13mpg average the first 3000 miles and then I started reading about the tire pressures....my dealer had set mine at 50psi all the way around. I put them at the proper 55/45 front and rear and holy cow, my avg mpg went up to 17.5mpg immediately....
