I took a trip to the beach over the summer, before doing any mods to my truck, driving 80-85MPH and got 21.5 MPG.
Since I added the Diablosport, Magnaflow, K&N, and 4.10 gears, the best I,ve gotten was 17.5MPG when driving 80-85MPH on the freeway.
I'm sure the 4.10's have alot to do with the drop in mileage, but if I were worried about MPG I would have bought a rice burner or some type of hybrid. That's just not an option!!!
I LOVE MY RAM....no matter what my mileage is!
