I've got a 2010 Laramie 4x4 and I get 15.5 in town and 20.5 on the road driving 70-75. I'm trying to figure out how some of you get such crappy mileage.

Ummmm. 20mpg? Maybe with a 2wd with stock tires and no passengers or load with zero headwind and ??? I've never seen better than barely 16 mpg @ 70, with everything aformentioned except 4x4 and my oversized tires. yes, yes, yes, hand calc AND computer confirmed.
As for the rest of the statement I 100% agree! ;-)
I actually typoed, I meant to say "closer to 20mpg", but still, many claim 20 mpg on the hwy. The guy posting above me claims it. I get anywhere from 21-23 mpg hwy depending on wind and speed and load, I understand I have the 4.7L. Everyone I know with the hemi gets damn near what my truck gets.

Before we got our tires installed we were only getting max of 17-18 MPG highway @ 70 MPH. Maybe folks are not hand calculating this or they are going strictly by the computer? Or...???
If I could get 18+ @ 70MPH highway with my tires, I'd faint.

That said, my leveling kit and tires killed about 2MPG all at once so I realize that. But 20+ MPG highway? Damn, maybe something IS wrong with my rig...

Mine seems decent for a Crew Cab 4x4.

My last two tanks were 20.3 mpg average hand calculated (I dont have EVIC) and my daily commute is 15 miles each way.

7.5 miles at an average of 26.5 mph (25-45 mph limits + 8 Lights and 3 Stop Signs).
7.5 miles at an average of 60 mph (55-70 mph highway).

17-18mpg at 70mph is more like 3rd gen hemi gas mileage, the 4th gens should get closer to 20 mpg or higher at 70mph with mds...hand calculated.

maybe I have something wrong with my Ram then!! After the comments above, I tried a motorway journey at 70 today, the only time it went to 20mpg on the instant readout was when I was going downhill!! On the flat it was more like 15-16mpg and any sort of incline however slight, saw the readout drop below 10! Journey average worked out at about 12.5mpg on the computer (which is always optimistic but works out pretty much spot on for a UK gallon (4.52 litres) when calculated properly)
