My truck is weird. I have a six inch lift with 35". I tried the whole babying thing after I broke the truck in only getting about 11.8 city. I have changed my driving style back to kind of the way way they tell you break them in (heavy on the throttle until u hit the speed limit and let it cruise after that, making sure to let it fall into the highest gear) and I'm now getting 13.5-14. I am also manually over riding the mds by putting my truck into 6th gear instead of putting it into straight drive. This has been working for me. Call me crazy but the numbers add up. I guess my hemi likes the fast take offs to show off for the ladies and rest in between for the next stop light!
