I have 6800 miles on my 2012 4x4 3.92 quad cab. Before and after 2.5'' lift average 11 city / maaaaybe 17 on Arkansas interstates. I drive fairly hard in the city do to the epidemic of slow ignorant drivers. Cruise control 75 on the hwy. Impressed with the power but gas mileage is a little low. I wanna pull the 19 it says it will get

Default New England mileage

Ive had my truck for 2.5 months and have put 4000 miles on it. I have a magnaflow catback dual exhaust and an Air Raid CAI. I drive 80 miles to work and back on Connecticut highways which really sucks because our highway system is so small and congested. I get to use the cruise just a bit in the early mornings but forthe most part I take it easy (under 75). I hit 20mpg according to the computer. I reset in my driveway and see what it says when I park at work. Although I didn't buy my RAM for commuting efficiently I think it's great to get that kind of mileage and still have that power under my foot when I want it.

Not sure how you guys are achieving this?
I have a CC also with CAI and catback.
What you explain seems like my drive daily. But I do no get that.
Wish I did

But as you said, it was not purchased to be like a Prius. Lol
But man, there is such a variance here.

Default 2003 mpg

I have had my 2003 Quad cab 4x4 a month. It is all stock. The best I have gotten is 14.5. That was on a recent 150 mile trip. I use the cruise control all I can and try to keep my foot off the floor area. I was thinking that I am happy with that but I see some better numbers here. I also note that the numbers are mostly from newer trucks. Is this bad mpg from this truck?

Thumbs down Dead thread walking...



Way to revive a dead thread...

It's one thing to be in the conversation and directly linked to the occurance/event. Don't jack a thread, read the info on the board and start a new conversation...

I have 2013 express crewcab and I average 21. Thats the info from both spots on the screen. Plus I do my own calculations every time I fill up. I drive 40 miles one way every day so that gives me plenty of time to get a long strech of cruise control. Speed limit is 70 mph and I drive 62 to 65 mph. When I'm going to work I'm a tad slower cause who really wants to hurry up and get to work.. coming home is a different story. Around town im 15 to 18 cause I tend to keep my foot in it.

I have a 2011 CC 4x4, 3.92? gearing, Westin grill guard with a Bakflip tonneau, otherwise stock, I average 14-16 mpg overall. I can't really say what I get 'in town' because I live 4 miles outside a town of 10,000... All of my driving is a mix of highway and city lol. My best tank ever was 19.5, running with a tailwind on relatively flat highway across Wyoming down to Denver.

My brother usually gets anywhere from 12.5-13.5 in the city and 18-20 on hwy unloaded. Maybe different because he swapped the 20" rims for 18's but played with tire size to keep oem tire size.
