Ok, so I have been doing some testing with Exxon 93 gas and Kroger (BP) gas 93 octane. I have the DS intune set at the DiabloSport tune (93) and I have had nothing but knocking every time I get on it from a start. WTF? It is not the gas. It has to be the tuner, well DS says that Hemi RAMS are known for knocking, well at least a few guys on their forums does anyways. I do not hear it when I am running OEM stock tune. I hear it when I am running the DS tune. What would you guys think? Do any of you have an issue with knocking? I am trying to grasp this in my head, but so far I can not. There should be something within the tuner that can be adjusted as to not have a knocking issue. Is that a too far fetch question? Any how let me know your opinions. Thanks.

I was also considering an In tune for my 2010 Ram but I think now I will wait a bit and see how this thread turns out. Good luck with your problem. Knock sucks.

I've been running an intune on my 2010 hemi 2500 for the past 6 months. Started with 87 tune then bumped up to 91 tune. I have no complaints, seems to be doing exactly what I want. I run Husky through mine. I will note that I once filled up with shell gas and I experienced knock while pulling my 5th wheel under WOT.

To all you that have turned off the MDS, does your fuel saver light still come on?
I have an 09 1500 and just got my in Tune thought I turned off the MDS but light light still comes on. Need input.
Thanks

Kind of a surprise by the MPG numbers, I get 15.5 mpg towing a trailer with 2 bikes at 70 mph. I average 17.5 in mixed driving during my daily commute, and I do not baby it at all. If I were getting 15 mpg and knock with a tuner I paid $400 for I would be pissed. I think I will pass on the tuner for now, subscribing to this thread.

Well, I have had mine for almost a year, DS intune and I can say this, I miss it when I do not have it tuned. The power I get from running the DS (93) tune is night and day.The best bang for the buck IMO.
