Bought mine used. Average was around 5 mpg when I got it. I reset the EVIC, and using a light foot I was able to get it up to allmost 8 mpg with a little highway driving thrown in!

Last week I disconnected the battery, and now suddenly my EVIC says I'm getting around 12 mpg. (that's the highest I've seen to date) .....so at least it seems to be getting better for some reason.

Wow.... mine is at 8.3mpg. I just bought this 09' used Ram a week ago. I used to drive a 02' Silverado. All i can say is that everything about this truck kills the Chevy exept mpg. Im hooping a CAI will help a lil bit. i try and feather the pedal too. Maybe cause i have such a short drive too and from work. I am heading up north next weekend so well se what highway mpg looks like

I average around 14.5 in the winter and around 17 in the summer. I usually remote start it 5 min before I leave in the morning in the winter. I drive 34 miles round trip to work, mostly freeway. These are real numbers, not EVIC.

I have 32,000 miles on my '09 and I usually average around 13 in the city and 16-18 on the highway. However, I am currently showing 10 mpg's! I'm not exactly sure why it is so low but I do live in a northern climate. The gas is all the "winter" blend which didn't help much last year but 10 seems low. I do let it warm up when I first start it in the morning and I realize that is probably the biggest contributing factor on the evic but manual calculations are very close
