You know, everyone's mileage will vary depending on many factors; driving style, road conditions, tempurature, etc......
... but c'mon man..... We're all 300 owners here, most with one of the versions of the Hemi..... and anyone who owns one knows that a claim of 30 mpg is not even remotely credible!
Who are you trying to kid? yourself?
If you reset the MPG calculator in EVIC while you are driving, yeah you may see 30 MPG or even higher, for a very short time. Hell I've seen it display 37 or 38 MPG when I've reset it while cruising at 65 on a slight downgrade. But there is no way possible to AVERAGE 30 mpg with a 300C for more than a mile or 2. It just takes a certain amount of energy to move a 4200 lb brick down the road, no matter what grade gas you use. Technology is fantastic but it can't repeal the laws of physics.
