I cant keep my foot out off the gas and I average 15 MPG's on highway doing 75-80. Good luck getting that "advertised" amount unless your going downhill with a good tailwind. You have almost 400 horses under your hood and your worried about MPG's?

I drive 3,000 miles a month, you're damn right I worry about MPGs. The truck easily gets 20mpg on the highway as long as you're not driving with a lead foot, it'll get more if you really watch it.

If you get better than 12 MPG you're driving like a sissy and aren't "showing off" your HEMI properly. Now get out there and burn some fuel!

Hehehehehehehehehehe

Well, I noticed today that the recommended tire pressure written on the inside of my door is 35 psi. When I bought the truck, it was at 30 psi. I assumed it was right. The max tire pressure written on my tires is 44 psi. I'll service them tomorrow at 38 to 40 psi and see how that helps.

I have 4K miles on mine. Gas mileage seems to be getting a little better. I am averaging 16 mpg this includes city and highway driving. I switched to mobil 1 synthetic on my first oil change

I have 8K on mine and get about 13 - 13.5 average right now...city/hwy. I also think it has broken in.
The only ram I have had that got better gas mileage than this was my 2004 which usually got around 15.4 combo

If you were worried about MPG's you should have bought a Prius.
