I have two Commanders. One has the 4.7 V8 and the other one has a Hemi.
I do not notice any real difference in the mpg. Renae drives the Hemi like a little old lady and it does have MDS which might help. I think she gets around 14 to 16 mpg according to the onboard readout.
I would guess that the issue of the number of miles on the odometer is more dependent on how well the maintenance schedule was followed. I only have about 60K on mine and Renae has about 90K on hers so I cannot comment much on the mileage. I had the water pump replaced on Renae's because it was leaking at the gasket and it made sense to just replace it with a new one. I do not recall any mechanical repairs on mine yet.
Similar to you I plan on keeping them both for a long time. I am retired so the mileage accumulates more slowly than a daily driver.
Good Luck on whatever you do.
