Isn't that what 2013 RAM is advertising anyway? This EVIC has a number of options to scroll through. One comes up looking similar to a speedometer, but shows live second by second your mpg as the throttle is pressed/depressed. If I do a lot of hwy on a trip it's been averaging about 20mpg. Of course there's only about 550 miles on the truck. If there is a lot of town driving in that trip, then it's significantly lower.

Sorry if I was not clear. The only other thing I know to do is take a cell photo but I believe I've answered the question. ":-D
My comment was intended as a Tongue-in-cheek statement only. I am a new RAM owner myself and have been only getting 19.5 mpg on the highway at 65 mph. Of course my truck only has 850 miles on it and I hope the fuel mileage improves as it gets broken in.
