I haven't seen anything official. Kind of funny that they're taking orders for these, but haven't released all the important info. on them. :)

The Ram 1500 window sticker shows 29 MPG highway. I can tell you that I've never seen anything remotely close to that, even with the cruise set at 70 on open roadway.
To add to this, if you look at Fuelly.com where owners hand calculate their mileage and the website averages it all together, you'll see that there's over 40,000 combined miles accounted for on the JL Wrangler EcoDiesel now, and the average MPG is 20.7.

That lines up really well with the 21 MPG I'm seeing with the Ram as well in mixed driving.

And, apparently on the 2021 model year window stickers, the MPG has been decreased, which is likely closer to average but still optimistic based upon real-world reports.

So far I've got just over 800 miles on mine, and am averaging 21mph city, and 23 highway with a full height bed rack and RTT

I am on my second tank of fuel. My driving is mixed city and highway and the average is at 23+ and climbing steadily.

I just filled up yesterday after emptying the dealership filled tank. I am averaging 24.8 mpg according to the computer. When I set the cruise btwn 65-70 it shows 29-33 mpg when not against a headwind. 70 -75 it shows 28-31, so not bad at all. I wonder where it will go when the 37's are on it! Can't wait to get em on.....
