Default dodge 5.9 fuel milage

I have a 1999 dodge ram 1500 5.9 360. I was wondering what are some basic things I could do to improve it gas mileage and horsepower. Its bone stock and have not done a thing to it yet. Any help will be appreciated

Basics would be a cold air intake and tuner, maybe adding a better flowing exhaust. I would be more than happy to help you out, feel free to email me at www.sales@bullysperformance.com as we don't have any of that stuff on our website

well i may suggest buying some actual horses and hauling it with them, get great mileage that way

other than that maybe changing gear ratio to benefit where you drive the most, if city go bigger number, hwy go smaller

either get your injectors cleaned or upgrade to 4 port injectors with same flow rate

tuner

smaller tires, haha works but wouldnt look right

start drafting behind big rigs? works for me

Cheapest way is to drive it like your always on empty. Coast when you can, and accelerate like there is an egg on the gas pedal. Maximize momentum, helps with a truck that gigantic. I get about 20 with a 5.9 4x4 with 33" tires. My truck has an FIPK and exhaust.
