I'm a brand spanking new owner of a ram. The 4runner went the way of the rust. Frame rotted right outta it. The first thing I noticed is that my Ram has vastly superior gas milage than the old toyota. Also the Ram has twice the horse power.

Yes, I agree with the above statement. What other brand truck can you buy and feel like a million bucks and still show the rest of the guys that your truck makes 14 - 21 mpg off of the show room. We have fords at work and well even ectoast which see 15 mpg and the rest is 10 mpg. The cousin has 13 Silverado and says wow how can you get that gas milage of your truck. I said you have to let yours brake in lol I had to make him feel good. So drive your truck as it is a truck and get a car for the rest of your trips if that makes you happier. LOVE MY RAM

don't think cai and exhaust will show any improvment in an 09. driving habits will yield the best results.

I wish I could get 14 I get mid 12 doing 65 down the hwy with cruise control on . I have 46k on the truck is there something wrong ? I knew it wouldn't be great but I could get 16-17 in my 02 4.7 at 75 on the hwy and that was with 33" mud tires . Hate to say it but I might trade thus back in on a 4.7

Sounds as if you have an issue that is poor gas mileage unless you have done something other that what you have stated to your truck. I get 12.5 pulling a trailer full of quads.

I got the truck 3k miles ago certified from the local dodge dealer . I thought the plugs get changed at 60k? If I light foot it around town and CC on the highway at 65 or below the best I can get is 13.3-4 something like that . I got better milage with my old 4.7 pulling a trailer with my jeep on it lol
