Well, let's see. If you ask about fuel economy within the first paragraph then it's significant enough as a determining factor in your purchase. I owned an '03 Ram 1500 Hemi before it was wrecked, and I currently own an '08 Ram 3500 Cummins. Surprisingly the Cummins actually does get better fuel economy than the Hemi. I can't tell you MPG because here we use Litres/100km. Either way if fuel economy is your concern then you should strongly consider a Dodge Dakota. Realistically neither the Hemi or the Cummins will get you good fuel economy.

Also keep in mind that if you upgrade the performance you are most likely to add extra weight to your right food, which would lead to more frequent fuel fill-ups.
