Default Gas mileage?

I have a 2010 dodge ram crew cab 4x4 with 3.55 gears. I am getting 17 mpg. Can I add something to my truck to get better?

There isn't much that can be done to make a truck get good gas mileage.

You say that you're getting 17 MPG, is that around town, on the highway, or a combination of both?

I've got a '10 CC, 1500 with the 3.55, I don't have 4WD. I typically will get 12-14 MPG around town, and about 22-24 MPG on the highway. It depends on conditions such as how much stop and go, how heavy I am on the pedal, and when on the highway what speed I'm running... I do better at 65 than I do at 75...

Not much U can do be happy with what U are getting. I'm netting a whopping 9mpg at best right now with winter fuel, around 11 or 12 in the summer.

52,000 miles and avg around town 14-15, road 19-22 on avg. headers with cold air kit will make it run like it's down hill all the time

The best gas mileage I've ever calculated from my 2012 Express 2WD RCSB with 3.92 gears is 18.7-18.9.

Hey I am averaging about 17-18 around town and 20 on the highway. Best advise is not to use the cruise and stay as close to the speed limit as possible. Hard to do I know!!

drive it like you are barefooted and pressing on red hot coals if you want the best MPG your truck can deliver .

...plus apply the brake least as possible, air up the tires to max. pressure.
Your current mpg is spot on
