It depends a lot on how you drive. I do about 70% city driving so the best I can get on my 3.3 is 22-24mpg. If you feel your mileage is unusually low check for codes (O2 and EGR especially), replace your plugs and wires if they're getting old, and check for proper tire inflation.
03SXTgangsta, you get 300mpg? Damn, I gotta get me a SXT. :p
Gas mileage is mostly a matter of driving habits. My 3.3L averaged 23.5 (360 miles/tank = 8 working days) over two years. The 3.5L in my R/T is ruinning about 22 - IF I leave the autostick alone. But I think it's going to settle in at about 20MPG (320miles/tank = 7 days) for my commute (80% highway). I haven't had it on a road trip, yet.
If you add in city miles in there, or a lot of entrance ramps to your highway miles, you will notice a big drop. I've posted on here before my OTIS reading of 460 DTE (Distance Til Empty) and that doesn't account for the first gallon (you can drive about 30-35 miles before the DTE starts to count down) and the last two gallons still left in the tank when it reads 0 DTE. I can usually go 450 miles or so before refueling on straight highway if I just set the cruise control and let it do its thing.
