Fuel prices are killing us all. My last truck was a 2001 F-150 Supercrew with a lift and 35's. I averaged 13 mpg combined city/highway. Just hoping a Hemi powered Ram 2500 will get that at least. I've read some very impressive "real world" MPG averages on this site for the new Ram 1500's and this gave me hope for the 2500. But I recently learned the 2500's don't have the fuel saving technology of the 1500's where some cylinders are shut down during highway cruising. But honestly, I never noticed before that 3/4 ton trucks don't have estimated fuel milage listed on the window stickers.

I have the 2012 mega cab 2500 with 4.10 gears: have around 4500 miles on the truck now and here are my numbers: Around town I average 13 mpg; Highway no load around 15-16; pulling my 9K 5th wheel I average 9 mpg (however lotsa hills and up and down...on the nice level straights I get around 11-12 towing hwy); towing my 3k boat I got 11-12 mpg. So far no complaints as it gets better gas mileage than my 2006 F150 that was lifted that it replaced.
