I have Laramie 4x4 with 3.92 gears, anti spin, winter tires and wheels with rambox and backflip tonneau. Mainly highway mileage (4700 KM in 4weeks). Cold winter driving. Driven very conservatively with cruising highway speeds of 70-80 MPH. EVIC after conversion is around 17 MPG overall average.

I've been running all of the mods listed below collectively for 2 weeks now. I am running an 87 octane canned tune in the tuner, and temps range from 0 to -20 C. My commute is roughly 95% HWY and 5% city/dirt.

From the moment I got the exhaust + headers on with the LMI intake my numbers have steadily climbed. This morning I saw my average hit 14.0 MPG. This is after only the 2 weeks of averaging and my being seriously in love with this beast, and not being shy on the skinny pedal (185+).

I suspect now that I have installed the Extang solid fold tonneau and with the temps becoming warmer my average will continue to climb.

For this beast I'd be happy with a summer average of 15-16. Anything above that will have me giddy

First, I dont see any 2013/14 Ram 1500 with a "Combined" FE of 18.

the Hemi/8-spd - either 2WD or 4WD - have a Combined FE of 17;
while the V6/8-spd 4WD is 19, 2WD is 20, and HFE is 21 (!).

http://fueleconomy.gov/feg/bymodel/2...0_Pickup.shtml

Second, It's important to remember that (in US):
the "Label" fuel economy of a vehicle is a sales weighted average of ALL the vehicles from that manufacturer with THE SAME powertrain

so for example the hemi/8-spd 4x4 1500 has a "Label" FE of 15 city/17 combined /21 hwy.

this is the (sales-weighted) AVERAGE of EVERY SINGLE 1500 with the hemi/8-spd/4x4 !

All the stripper Tradesman RC/SB, All the Fully Loaded Crew Cabs, and everything in between..
All the 3.21, 3.55, 3.92 axles .
All the 17" & 20" tire, including the various tires in each size.
etc. etc.

That is A LOT of variability !

And - sorry but- the more options you have on your truck,
the more likely you will be to have Fuel economy that is LESS THAN average.

Especially the 3.55 & 3.92 axles, and of course the heavier 4-doors, and the off-road tires..

The *only* factory option that I know of which would actually IMPROVE the fuel economy is the tonneau cover.

Well the EcoDiesel would also help
