i can understand the low milage in the city, but your hwy mileage is way off. i'm thinking if you hand calc, you will find you did better.

Yes, 14.5mpg on the hwy is waay low! My 5.7L Hemi quad cab with 20" wheels routinely gets 18.5mpg driving 70mph on the hwy. In town, I get 15.5mpg.

I feel like you just posted for me! RCSB Express 3.55's my first tank was 11 MPG!! Recently I went on a trip and tried to keep my speed down to 70 or under, 16.5 MPG 80% highway 20% city on that tank, horrible! I'm seriously hoping that the mileage will increase as the engine breaks in. I'm at 1200 miles right now and not too happy with the economy. Next tank I plan on adjusting my driving habits. In town I've been easy on the gas, too easy maybe because MDS kicks in just before I have to start breaking for the light. Next tank I'm going to try accelerating faster up to speed and letting MDS kick in earlier.

Mine now has 1000 miles and I am not getting the mileage you guys are. The tires came at 44 and I am thinking of lowering them.

Impropper tire pressure is one of the leading causes of tire falure and/or abnormal wear.

Stock tires? CORRECT pressure is listed inside the drivers door jam. Allways check cold with the same good gauge.
