Hahaha! Thought you'd like that man. I don't hate Ford's, Chevy's,GMC's,Toyota's,Nissan's,or Mazda's truthfully. They all have something good to offer in their own way but just not in the way my Ram does; even if I only got 22mpg for a 2 hour drive averaging 72mph. I'm sure the F150 5.0L would have probably got 23mpg. Is it worth the extra 5K? Nah. I'd rather spend that on Ram accessories.

I'm getting slightly better MPGs in the city with my 2012 Ram 1500 Crew Cab (5.7L) than I did with a 2010 F-150 Super Crew FX4 (5.4L).
Funny thing is, I'm averaging about 2-3 more MPGs on the highway with 3.92 gears compared to 3.73 gears in the Ford. I'm still breaking the Ram in too, and I haven't even set the cruise control yet!
Friend of mine has an 11 F-150 FX4 with the 5.0, and he gets worse MPGs than my Ram too.

Just traded in my 2009 F150 Supercab Lariat 5.4L for a 2011 Ram 1500 Laramie Crew Cab. The Ford was definitely better on gas. I averaged 15.5-16mpg in town and 21-22mpg on the highway with cruise usually set at 73mph. My Ram with 3.55 gears is seeing 13mpg in town (very light footed driving, much less than ford) while I am now seeing 19mpg on the interstate with the Ram, but cruise set on 67. Apples to apples, the Ford would have seen 22-23 with cruise set at 67mph. The additional 6th gear on the Ford really made the difference, however I didn't care for the way it would search for gears sometimes....
