without tune I get 15 - 17 city and 21 - 23 hwy

with economy tune I get 14 - 16 city, 19 - 21 hwy

with 91 octane tune (and when I stay out of it) I get 16 - 19 city, 22 - 25 hwy.

I have 130ish thousand miles, I run Royal Purple synthetic, 3.92 gears and a tonneau cover.

With a tonneau cover and exhaust, I got 11 around town and just got 15 on a 350 mile trip. Swear I used to get 12 or 13 and 19 in my 06.

sounds about right.

getting the same MPG as you. (thought I was getting a bit more, but I fixed my tire size as they've been wearing down and I'm right at where you are)

I'm currently in the market for a Ram. I can handle 15 combined MPG. My STi I sold got like 14 if I was lucky lol. Remember the difference with a tonneau cover is negligible at best.

03 4.7 SLT 2WD, stock everything that matters, 90% town driving; I average between 13.1 to 16.3 depending on what kind of mood I'm in. I use Gas Cubby for iOS to keep track.

I tried hypermiling techniques a couple months back because I thought it was a freaking hilarious thing to do in a Dodge Ram, and that got me up to 20 on one trip. However, I bout lost my mind driving like that so it only lasted one tank.
