Well the guy that sold it to me just a day or so ago when I picked up the tags said to me if you're getting 25mpg hold on to this baby. I thought, well that's what they advertise. I have a feeling though that I have a steadier foot than most. I've always been real conscious about mpg so I have a soft foot on the throttle. Do you ever see the number 25mpg on that EVIC display? Just curious if you have a sec to respond. Again, maybe my 4x2 accounts a little for the mpg. Lot's less weight I'd think.
Mine is also a 4x2. The 19mpg reading is from the EVIC. The window sticker on my 2013 RAM Laramie Longhorn states that the combined city/hwy fuel mileage as 16mpg with the city average being 14mpg and highway fuel mileage 20 mpg.

I also am very conscience of fuel economy with gas prices being so high. I rarely drive over the speed limits and generally will drive 5 mph under the speed limit without impeding the traffic.

If you will review the 25mpg advertisement you may find that they are talking about the RAM with the 6 cylinder engines. They show you a RAM with a 5.7 Hemi but they are really talking about the truck with the 6 banger when referring to the fuel economy. I caught that while I was shopping for a new truck and before finally purchasing my new RAM.
