Actually, I have been rather impressed by the mileage my Ram is getting. I am running in the mid 16s MPG around town and up to 21 MPH on the two lane highways (usually around 19-20). I towed my boat (20’ walleye boat) 500 miles last week and it ran in the mid 14 MPG range for the entire trip, which is only about 2 MPG less than my Ford diesel use to run with the same load. These numbers are off the truck’s computer but when hand calculating the mileage a few times it seems to be fairly accurate. I have 3.55 gears with the Hemi.
