I have the 3.7 crew cab and have been getting 15-16 town and 22/23 highway, but I just did the custom intake and have not had a chance to check for any improvements in mpg. It is an improvement in throttle response and sounds a little better.
I have to drive like grandma because of our two children in the backseat so that may help some, but the little one loves when I do a burnout in our driveway!
I have also tried all grades of gas and seem to get the best mpg from just 87 octane.

Alright Thanks. I am hoping to get about 15-16 mpg. I only have about 500 miles on it so far so i am assuming that it is still trying to break itself in. We'll see in the next few tanks what it gets.
