I dissapoint myself by using a fuel log app on my phone so I can track every fill up/mpg/cost to date/ etc...

The app uses math and over a 5mo period so far my average is 14.7. Best tank I have gotten is 16.5 and worst has been 12.7

Ive got Spectre CAI and Flowpro muffler on my 08 4x4, and its about 50/50 highway and city driving

Yes, I took it to a local Dodge dealership and they said they calibrated it the best they could since they don't have factory 18" wheels, if that makes sense.

What's the name of the app you use? That'd be a neat app to have that would definitely get used alot.

Idk if I would quite go that far since obviously the new rams are getting upwards of 25mph with a 5.7L v8.... I agree 30mph is a bit much to ask for when buying a pick-up truck, but I can absolutely understand people complaining about 15.

Filled up today and reset everything, made it 15 miles with my cruise set at 58mph. Had to stop once, but definitely the highest ive seen.

I don't know how I came off as complaining. I was simply curious about what other people got out of their Hemis; I even said 15 was good for a Hemi. So if you're "sick" of seeing people compain, even though I wasn't, quit reading and better yet, don't bother commenting. If I was going for mileage I would've got a car; obviously I wasn't but I do try to get the best I can. Thanks for the not-so-much needed comment though.

2005 4X4 Hemi, auto trans., CAI, Flowmaster, SuperChips tuner on 87 tune and running 87 octane. I get 18 to 18.7 on highway and 13.4 stop and go. I think that is pretty good for a truck. I had a Blue Oval (my son rants on me if I even say the name) work truck that barely got 11 mpg on the highway. I guess my driving is conservative as I never punch the long skinny pedal anymore. Overall, I am pleased with the numbers.
