Default Gas mileage

Well guys and gals I have not posted anything about gas mileage on my 09 Ram till I thought I had enough information. I hauled my 23ft camper from South Carolina last month via I81 through the mountains showing no mercy with 65 to 70 mph. The truck performed wonderfully. The first tankful was in tow/haul mode which netted me 10mpg. Without tow/haul and watching the tach and feathering the throttle a bit the rest of the way up it increased to 12mpg. Without the camper and setting the cruise at 68mph has given 20.7. I guess if you are gonna use those horses under the hood ya gotta expect to pay for it The reality is that it gets better mileage than my old GMC 350. Still lovin this RAM
