I can get around 14.5 city on my, but I have to drive like a grandma. The truth is I enjoy my RAM so I average around 13 city, but it is killing me. I also hope for gas price to get lower.

This is about what I average too.
I have an app on my iPhone that calculates all this for me.
I enter in my mileage, miles (km's) driven and cost per liter (gallon). Last one not being that relevant

Here are the numbers over the past 3 months
Worst - 13.64 mpg
Best - 16.75 mpg
Avg - 15.43 mpg

In liters (for us Canadians)
Worst - 17.24 L/100
Best - 14.05 L/100
Avg - 15.24 L/100

How are those of you getting 19.5-20.8?
Does the crew can actually make that much of a difference?

I've filled up my tank 5 times since I've had it. The MPG's were as followed - 10.53, 10.65, 9.69, 9.65, 10.30. It would be nice to get what everyone else seems to be getting but I still love the truck!

I do drive like a grandma most of the time in the truck and here is south west Florida the roads are very flat, when i bought the truck i had the 3.21 rear diff option, so i was hoping on this first 3hr drive that i would see around 20mpg, but it never happened 18mpg was my best, which was similar to my old 05 Daytona, Gas was not my first concern when buying the truck and i do like it, it just figured it would be a nice bonus to get a bit better MPG than my old truck, as it is now, i am still waiting for my bonus lol.
