OK, maybe not 30 MPG but on a 1300 miles trip I got 27.7 US MPG average.
And thats US MPG ... imperial it would be 33.2 Imperial MPG.

That was a camping trip ... 2 persons ... camping gear and food for a week ....

I love the V6 with 8 speed .....

I've never seen 30mpg for a whole tank, but have gotten it there over a significant distance. Over a 200km (120mile) trip on county roads, cruising at 90kph (56mph).

30 is achievable but definitely not sustainable.

Hello all!

I just returned from a 700 mile trip (Birmingham, AL to Gulf Shores, AL) in my Ram. First tank had a lot of around town driving on it as well as 75 mph interstate driving for 200+ miles; it came to 23.3 mpg measured, 23.8 displayed over 457 miles. However, I filled up before coming home and I took a different route. It involved more stop and go, and more hills that required downshifting from 8th to 7th and occasionally 6th, but lower overall speeds (the highest limit is 55mph; I averaged 62 on these stretches with cruise control). When I pulled in my driveway last night, I'd driven 262.3 miles over 5 hours and 10 minutes. My average mpg was displayed at 27.0 MPG.

Regardless of whether or not this is off by as much as 1 MPG, I'm still pretty happy with this for a crew cab truck loaded with 500 lbs of passengers and gear.

4x2 RCSB (open bed) SLT w/ 3.21 running around very, very flat Houston.

I usually average 18-19 in half and half city/hwy. When I get OCD on my MPG gauge, I can pull 21 in the same area.

I'm very impressed with the Pentastar performance and MPG numbers.

I have the 3.6/8 speed with the 3:21s. Its a quad cab SLT. My average can vary quite a bit. Right now I am at 20.9, that's about 60% highway. I have gotten it as high as 24.3 for a full tank but that was going back and forth about 120 miles a day mostly highway. I can usually get 500 miles to a tank, at least 475 anyways, that's when the light will come on or about to come on, that's a 26 gallon tank. I had a 2005 hemi that averaged about 13 to 14 MPG all the time, and with the same 26 gallon tank I would get between 280 and 330 miles per tank.


I am very impressed with this truck. If you drive a lot of highway its totally worth it. I drive a lot, I am saving at least 50 bucks a week on gas. The other thing is the hemi took 89 octane, this one is 87. Around here places tend to jack up the 89 25 to 35 cents more per gallon.

Default v6 MPG

2013 RAM 1500 3.6L V6 4x4 Crew Cab 4K miles

I average about 22mpg with mixed driving. Probably 65% at 60mph then the rest varies.

I did try 93 octance fuel and ironically it has not improved gas mileage at all. As a matter of fact, it seems worse which I cannot figure out. I guess the good news is, I can run 89 octane and save money.

You can use 87 octane and save even more. The 3.6L is tuned to run optimally on 87; the engine's computer is not tuned deliver better performance on 89 or 91-93 like the Hemi.
