blacknback is infamous around these parts
Smile 2010....Finally busted out the calculator..9.8 mpg!!

After 7 months I thought I would check...9.8 mpg that's about right! Yea around "town", a little heavy on the foot and a 20 minute de-ice warm up. Took me a week to go 74 miles...
Have a friend that has an 07. He was braggin' about the MDS and how it was going to get good mileage...I said "It's a DODGE!" Don't know, but now he calls B.S. on the MDS thing..something about only activated between 50-55 mph. (?)
OWNED A 1995, 1999, 2010...If you claim you get over 15mpg you are a LIAR!
(diesel excluded...no experiece with that...yet)
My point is everybody knows somebody with a RAM...nobody admits to the real mileage, or can't do math.....don't really care...got a HEMI!!

I get around 16 with my Dodge. I also make sure it has regular service oil changes, transmission, diff etc. I am very picky about my "MARTY" and show it...

I would also have to disagree. Went on an 85 mile loop yesterday, (mostly rural road speeds 60-65mph) and got a touch over 16mpg. That's actual gas use vs. miles traveled and I only have 700 miles on my truck.

I get anywhere from 11.5-14 mpg in town driving only depending on how hard I press the go button. On highway my last trip was 20.9 mpg hand calculated! You need to make sure you are not driving with your parking brake on or have 5,000 lbs. of crap in the bed of your truck!
