The best MPG comes from a lightly tread... on the right pedal, I mean...

Just did a 2,000 mile trip with my ram... 23MPG, with 1200# in the back... Can't beat the diesel! Okay, I'll quit being a jerk... Not to put too fine of a point on it but it doesn't matter which pickup you purchase for when you purchase a pickup you've given up all rites to any mileage... goes with the territory.
