Default My first fill-up

I filled my truck up for the first time since I bought it. Not counting the tankful to get it home from the dealer.

I got 13.8 mpg in mixed driving.

I have a regular cab, short box with the 4.7L.

How did my truck do?

That sounds low if you are 2wd. My first 2 tanks averaged 12.8 mixed (mostly city). That's a CC Hemi 4x4 with 3.92s.

did you buy it brand new? I heard MPG increases as the truck breaks in.

at first you will hit between 13 and 15 l/100klm then it will drop to around 11-12 l/100klm if you only do highway it will be less, I average 13 - 15 l/100kl city highway and I am usually driving it to hear my exhaust, not to save fuel, I would say thats around 18 -15 mpg on winter gas, summer gas I will do better, again, I am not saving fuel, I am driving it like I stole it.

Is it 2wd or 4wd? I have a 4.7 regular cab short bed with the ram box. Constantly carry tool around in the boxes, mixed driving pretty much everyday. Mine has averaged 15-17.5 and has been as high as 19-19.5 on a long 300+ mile highway drive to NC.
