mattgindy500 is on a distinguished road

i have a 07 ram v6 had it since new and have never seen better than 17mpg have seen as low as high 14's normal is 16.5mpg if i drive 55mph. if i drive slower and dont worry about the mph and worry about my rpm and keep it below 1500rpm i can get 17mph. my driving is 70highway/30city most of the time. i too was not happy after i bought this truck the last one i had was a 99 dakota with the 3.7v6 and a 5speed even with that when it had 160,000miles when i sold it i was still getting 20mpg with it. really wish i stuck with a stick with this turd. i know the next truck i get will have 2more plus in it. i guess the only thing i can do to make my mpg jump is do the fan mod. i just changed plugs back in the summer to standard run of the mill autolite so i wont be changing them out unless there is a better plug that is a 100% going to get me at least 1mpg better.
