Yeah, how you drive has a huge impact on MPG's. A trip to Atlanta resulted in 17 MPG's, a trip to the beach for the day resulted in 20 MPG's. The difference? Driving 70 to 80 MPH on the interstate vs. driving 45 to 55 MPH on two lane state roads that I couldn't pass on. So instead of attempting aggressive passes, I just chilled out and set the cruise control.

Im aware of that and that is my concern too as to whether or not I make the plunge in a 2500.
Given my truck gets 15-16 now and possibly better once I add a charger....this is what is holding me back too

Yes, I get to keep my warranty as long as my dealer installs the charger and I service it there
Id would be stupid not to as every other dealer will turn me away
