Default 2009 Ram Mileage ?

Does anyone have any mileage numbers for the 2009 Ram 1500 4.7.
I'm getting 18mpg around town and 20mpg on the highway when i can keep my foot out of it, Thats with a power module. Also does anyone have an issue with what i"ll call a long throttle lag coming off the line, mine finally burst to life at about 3000 Rpms.

That's just the torque management controlling your throttle. Not much you can do until someone comes out with a tuner.

18 and 20 mpg sounds good for a truck of this size. Doubt you can do much better than that.

What's the Power Module you are refering to? I haven't seen any for the 09's yet??

Hey topgun the module is one of those that is piggy backed to the ati wires. It is supposed to adjust the air fuel mixture, I was getting 16 mpg before and now 18 mpg around town, Don't know if it's the module or a lighter foot there is a big kick in the butt at 3000 rpm. So far i've spanked a bmw 325, lexus I300 and a mitsu. eclipse. So much for the rice boys.
