My 2010 ram 1500 stock the only mods I've ever done is fill it with shell premium from day one. Back in June 2010 we were driving up to see some friends for Canada day long weekend at the lake. We loaded up some Groceries some beers and our two little boys. We fired some kids toys in the box and headed out on a 180 km trip. It was a beautiful sunny day bout 27 C and low wind. The truck was about 3 weeks old and had 700 km on it. I set the cruise on at about 105km and toured up to the lake. When we got there I was ripping apart my glove box to find my window sticker because my dash was reading 11.3 litres per 100 km and in miles per gallon that was 25. To this day if u set out on the road and your not punching a 40 mph wind the truck will pull 11.5 all the time. All I do is check my tire pressure often ( who doesn't like playing out in the shop) and fill it with premium fuel 91 octane. I haven't changed a light a filter anything the truck is stock as stock can be, except for my red business stripes. Nov 4 2010 I ordered my 11 but this time I got 3.92 gears and e few more option. Ex heated seats heated wheel nav big stereo. But stock as stock can be.

Ill try to track down a photo of my dash computer when we went on a trip here 2 months ago to Vernon B.C. with my 10 the dash says 10.7 Ltrs per 100 km 700+ km on a 95 ltr tank
Note being a 10 it's a five speed HEMI 3.55 gears

So the best mileage in my 11 HEMI 3.92 gears 5 speed and always premium fuel is as low as 11.7 but mostly mid 12 s low 12 s
