I hear ya vinny68. I haven't seen over 23 on the interstate at 75 also. Just a little over 30,000 miles on my car.
IF(<- big if)I can keep my foot out of it, and I use EVIC to moniter throttle position to maximize MDS operation, I can get right @ 26 MPG on the interstate doing 70-75 MPH. Around town, about 15 MPG.
I have no idea what I "could" get around town, as I've tried to drive easy on a tank just to see. So far, I haven't succeeded in doing that for a full tank! I do seem to average around 14-15 mpg for my daily driving (a mixture of city and some highway). On long trips, I've gotten 23 mpg if I can control the urge to step on it too often.

Seems after some flat out passing and city driving she averages out at about 19-20 mpg. 2005 RT RWD.
23mpg highway, about 17 city. I've got AWD and my only mod is a SuperChips, currently using the 87 octane tune due to gas prices and a thin wallet. :(

Bone stock '06 AWD R/T, with (heavy) 20" TSW Zandvoort wheels, getting 14 mpg combined, w/ about 85% city driving (lots of stop and go with the occasional stomp to impose my will on all these f*cking ricers). On a flat road on the highway and resetting the mileage counter I can get 21-22 mpg at 65 mph and below, +/- 1 mpg depending on weather.
Average since new 18.75 mpg for a total of 39818 miles. Average $/gal is $2.487. Average $/mile is $0.1326. Average gals/fillup is 15.97 gals. Average $/day is $6.87.
But who's keeping track anyway?
2005 Magnum RT Midnight Blue
So far, around 17-18 city and a best of 23-24 hwy. Neither my wife nor myself is easy on the loud pedal. Natch, I wish it was better but overall, after 18 months, I still love everything about the Magnum.
