Here is a link to my fuelly account:

2014 4WD Laramie Limited 5.7L Hemi, 3.92, Limited Slip & Factory Wheels & Tires

It's a 200 mile round trip to my lake place that is mostly 55-65 highway cruising. I made this trip once on my second fill up and it significantly helped my MPG for that fill. If you think that you're contributing to a MPG thread by posting the numbers that the Evic displays here is the difference on my first two fills:
Evic 20.0 Hand 18.33
Evic 17.8 Hand 16.81
Truck's computer is definitely a glass half full personality

I'm getting around 22 avg on the EVIC. I have a 4x4 but that was all in rear wheel drive. I do mostly highway. It took a little bit of reading to learn how to drive better to get myself up to that average. It takes some focus and I drive slower to work.

Why run 93? Isn't the engine designed to take 87?

Hi All.

I have a 2014 Ram 1500 CC 4x4 with the 3.92 tow package. NO bed cover yet.

Ive only had to fill the tank (32 gallons) once so far. I forget what the Computer said but it was being Generous! I think I got 14.55mpg on my first tank. I took possession after the dealer brought in in mostly highway and it had 539 miles on it when I bought it.

I have been really soft on the pedal and trying to do my best with the ECO mode, lol. I'm not trying to really open it up yet, although I am now over 1,000 miles.

I'm hoping with the cover and summer fuel coming I will maybe be at 15-16MPG AVG? I am not much on the highway, and Pittsburgh SUCKS as far as hills and stop and go traffic is concerned so my expectations are LOW!

The only car that ever did better than expected for me in this area was my Ford 500. That V6 no matter how I drove it got around 22mpg local driving and did close to 30mpg when I did do Highway.

Either way, I LOVE this truck and we plan on towing a Travel Trailer soon so it is a necessity.

Oh no - I've been using regular gas. I've only put 2k miles on the truck so far. I had no idea I should have been using mid grade. Is it possible I caused any damage? I dint know how I missed that. I thought I looked it up in the manual.

Nah, it wont hurt it. It may hurt your mileage a bit, but nothing to loose sleep over.
