You guys do know Im just pullin' your chains. The 454 did get ok gas mileage. I dont care what mpg my truck gets. I had to have a Hemi because of a ride last year in this.

It was on loan to Red Jacket for a weekend. Got to meet some R&D guys from Dodge. Got to meet and punch in the arm the sob that put a diesel engine In a Jeep liberty.I always said , I meet the sob who did this im going to kick his ass. I liked him so I just hit him in the arm. Yes the 50 works we shot the sh#t of some cars that day.

You have an R/T with 4.10 gears. You also also wasting your money on 93 octane. Your manual will tell you this.

I dont know what quality or where the gas that has been run thru it for the 50,000 miles before I got it a few weeks ago. Im going to run a few tanks of good gas and a couple cans of sea foam thru it. Going on a 600 mile trip in about 5 hours from now. If it needs a good cleaning out its about to get it.

I called shotgun first...bet you hear that a lot. Actually calling shotgun would be an understatement, lol. I'm calling 50 cal, probably have to sit in the back anyway.

Hello will36 and sorry to bust your bubble but unfotunately, my 2012 CCSB 4x4 with 3.55LSD only averages 15.8 city/hwy mix and 20/21 hwy. Thats a no shizzer bud! One work week I have calculated an average of 16.5 but that was being extremely right foot conservative. I have the big three with Bils set at 2.1" on stock 20" badyears. Them 2013 Hemi 8speed Ram's I am sure get better than a 2012. But then again, it all depends on the weight of a drivers lead foot that makes or breaks ECO.

MY 2013 crew cab Pentastar and 8 speed avg mpg display is at 21.7 right now after a month. I'm babying it with a mix of city/highway to get that but if I drove normal without eyeballing it constantly, I'd prolly get 18. Either way, it's much better than the under 10mpg I was getting with my previous '89 F150 5.0 4x4 with 31 tires. Engine and tires were worth more than the rest of that money pit.
