Default Fuel economy on a 5.7 Hemi quad cab

Hi all,

I just wanted to get some input from others about what they are getting in their 5.7 Hemi Ram quad cabs and whether their computers are even remotely accurate.

I get between 7.5 and 9 MPG around town and 13 - 16 MPG hwy. I have stock tires, rarely use the air con, never accelerate hard and occasionally carry loads. It's an '06, 4wd quad cab with no accessories and no camper shell or toneau cover (though I usually have the tailgate off).

My computer estimates my economy to be around 14 MPG pretty consistently - which I only ever get on long trips when I keep the speed down. Is this pretty similar to what everyone on here gets?

I recently took the Ram to Jiffy Lube for an oil change and they did the exhaust sniff. They rated it at 10/10 and said she was running at optimium for fuel economy.

I look forward to your thoughts.

Chamba
