I do mostly city and drive it like I stole it, so it just chugs fuel, but it sounds so good doing it, lol.
Believe me if there were no speed limits or cops around my fuel consumption wouldn't be this good. The service manager and mechanic both said it didn't hurt to open them up once in a while so I actually did on the way home from Hanover and the RAM seemed to peak at 172 (107.5 mph) or maybe I was chickening out.
I figured out the Ford and got 25.7 mpg this week, a little less than last week. I'll do the RAM when I get fuel in Hangover tonight before rollerbootin.
