I am pretty impressed how well the truck benefited from those.
Are you taking those readings from driving downhill???!!!!! If you have the 5.7, I can't believe you are getting those numbers, as I have the same rig, and I am no where near that.

We should publish a RamForumZ STANDARD MPG calculations procedure so that everyone can compare "apples to apples" re: engines, mods, terrain, driving styles, etc....

I couldn't calculate the last couple of fill ups because my cluster was out for a couple of days and then I had to replace the radiator, but usually I get 13-14 in town, 16-18 over the road. I have a 99 2wd reg short w/ a 5.9. It's got 195k miles w/ K&N drop in air filter and flowmaster catback.

My 2010 Ram 1500 gets 16 on the highway at approx 70. It is a 5.7L. Yesterday I took my 08 Super Bee on a trip and I got 25 mpg going up with the wind and 22 coming home into the wind, based on the EVIC. The car of course is a 6.1L.

Most of my trips are less than 3 miles, so the engine never really gets warmed up. Usually get 8-10. Just got back from Atlanta(1000 miles round trip). Highway started out at 12.5 for the first tank, 13.5 for the second tank, up to 15.5 by the 4th tank. Guess I had a lot of carbon built up that got cleaned out.

I've got a catback exhaust, CAI, and a Superchips programmer.

I have put just over 2000 Km on the truck and I averaged 18mpg ... I expect this to go up as I am still breaking in the engine.

Better since I replaced the engine driven fan and clutch with an electric fan.

18.40mpg after the switch.
That rocks.

My last trip I averaged 10.2 l/100 km (23 mpg) on the way there and 11 l/100km (21 mpg) for the whole tank. A little over 860 km's from the tank 112 Liter tank. That is pretty impressive considering that the truck has 390hp and it is a 4x4!
