we all now have the Summer Blend gasoline in our vehicles, unless you don't drive yours much.
You should be getting better mileage now, Winter Blend has a lot of Butane in it & any gas that is in your vehicle or spare gas cans, goes bad quickly, it also evaporates faster

When you get more miles on your Ram, your mileage will improve
I have 65,000 miles on my 2 wheel drive, i always have 1,000 pounds of extra tools, etc. in my Ram QC & i get 17.4 MPG, computer calculated on the highway

I don't use DRIVE in town, i believe that i get better mileage that way & i don't have the MDS kicking in & out all the time, it makes that strange noise when it kicks in at 28 mph
(it sounds like an old, bean eating, beer drinking, fat guy passing gas)
