speed is a large factor, I used to drive the Ram like my old Ranger (70 MPH on the highway) and got a terrible 11 MPG, so I had to adjust acceleration and cruising speed. Now I cruise 63 MPH (100 kmh) on the highway. Sure it takes a little longer but saving 4 MPG is beneficial, I just enjoy the music a little longer

Since September 20 2012 we have averaged 19.9 mpg. with our 2012 Ram 1500 with the 4.7 engine. I'm sure it will get better. Our check engine light is on, code P 1404 EGR closed position. I'm taking it in Saturday morning at 8 a.m. We have 26,000 km. on it now.

Well don't feel bad my 12 express 2dr 5.7 not sure what gears, on 100% gas gets only 13-15 and I really try to keep my foot out of it, it has 13k on it now going to the cold air intake and Flowmaster hopefully that will help some.

Speaking of gears how do you find out what gears you have.
