Default milage improvement

I read on the forum that taking my truck out of eco mode while driving around town gives you a better feel for the truck and stops that grumbling drive line noise. So, after filling up at the gas station (regular fuel) and driving around town for a couple of weeks, I had to agree, that the truck drove better. When I filled up the next time, I was suprised to find that my milage was 16.3 mpg. On previous fillups after driving the same roads and the same way, but in eco mode, I only got 13.9 mpg.....2+ mpg in around town driving is great. Just to make sure it wasn't a fluke, I did it again with similar results. My Ram is a 2012 Hemi with the 375? gears, I think thats the number. Norton
