I'll be checking mine in the morning. I havne't noticed the light come on yet. I've only had the truck 2 weeks so I'm still getting use to it.

As much as I loved my 01 Ram this one is just plain awesome. Except for that stupid seat squeek that is still there even after taking it in to be fixed.

Mine is 04/09, so the Fuel Saver Light is there.
I do have a question about how and when the MDS mode kicks in. I have noticed that the Fuel Saver light only comes ON when the shifter is in D. If you are in TOW/HAUL mode or in "manual" mode (Tiptronic) there is no Fuel Saver light. Does that mean the MDS is only active in D, or is just the light that comes ON only in D?

MDS is only active when in D. Also for those of us that don't have the fuel saver light, just watch your rpms drop once you get to a steady speed. I have the 3.21's and at 65mph I'm running about 1500rpms

A Dodge tech on another forum said he just flashed his truck and now has the indicator.

Driveability Improvement for EZD and EZH engines:

MDS transitions have been enhanced from V8 to V4 and V4 to V8 in all ambient temperatures and operating ranges. These enhancements were made to make the transition less noticeable to the customer.
