6-speed vs. 8-speed, from the 2013 EPA *raw*, unadjusted test data:

Ram 1500 Hemi, 5500 ETW, 4WD:
Truck L9DS10852 6-spd, 3.55 FDR, 25.3 N/V. MPG Highway 25.6 City 16.5
Truck R3DS19935 8-spd, 3.21 FDR, 22.8 N/V. MPG Highway 28.6, 28.4 City 17.6, 18.4, 18.5

and the 2WD Ram 1500 Hemi, 5500 ETW,:
Truck L9DS10852 6-spd, 3.55 FDR, 26.0 N/V. MPG Highway 27.1 City 17.0
Truck L3DS19531 8-spd, 3.21 FDR, 22.8 N/V. MPG Highway 29.6, 30.1 City 18.5

ETW is Emissions Test Weight;
N/V is the tire "rev's per mile" and can be used to back-figger out which tire was on the test vehicle.
pretty sure none of these is with the base 17" (N/V 23.6)

it seems odd that the same vehicle was used for both 6-spd 2WD & 4WD tests,
but different tires ? may be a typo, may be real ..

before you freak out about how high these MPG results are, read
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FTP-75
to understand more about the EPA testing and cycles

search for 'EPA test car data' if you wish to download the actual Excel files;
not much there for the 2013 1500 hemi's..
there's more V6 stuff, not surprisingly.
