Default Only getting 10 mpg .... help

Hey Guys

I have a 2005 dodge ram quad hemi that is having a hard time getting from one gas station to another....lol.

Anyone do any performance upgrades like the mopar cold air intake, superchips, or anything else that helped improve the gas milage.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Running a stock 2005 4X4 Quad Cab 1500 with auto trany. Looking at installing a cold air intake and maybe using the preditor programer. Have already installed the ground effects package along with a tonneau cover and rear spoiler, now getting ready for engine mods. Any ideas why the gas milage is so low on the highway ....10mpg

How are you measuring your mileage?

If you have a CAI, you probably want to go with an aftermarket exhaust. More air in plus more air out will increase efficiency.

I have a Predator on my Chrysler and love it! But, my mileage never improved...the Predator really woke up the 6.1L HEMI and my right foot keeps hitting the floor as a result. LOL
