I have the 2010 5.7L hemi and mine shows 16 MPG right now. That is a mix of rush hour highway and city driving. I'm only on my second tank of gas since I bought it and reset it though.

Im hooping a CAI will help a lil bit. i try and feather the pedal too. Maybe cause i have such a short drive too and from work. I am heading up north next weekend so well se what highway mpg looks like

At least I'm not the only one! ...haha! Like I said, I was getting around 5mpg when I bought mine used!

Try disconecting your negative battery cable for about ten minutes to "truley" reset your EVIC mpg's. Doing that made my mpg jump from 8 to almost 13.

So far 13 is the best I've seen, still not very good, but definately better than 5!

I have a 2009 Crew Cab Lonestar Ed. with about 43,000 miles on it. I see about 18-20 on the HWY for long trips unless I hit a strong head wind or climb a mountain I see about 16-17. For a mix of city & HWY I currently have 17.6. Hope this helps.

Jeez, 13 mpg that must be awesome. I can put alot of blame on the remote start. I don't like to wear my coat when I drive, so it has to be warm during the winter. I actually get better mileage during the summer months I average about 9 mpg with no highway driving at all. I came from a lifted TJ so this is surprisingly an upgrade in the mileage department.

The best that i have ever got was like 13 and most of the time i get 10 and for the past 2 weeks i have been getting like 4.2 mpg and hope that i got it fixed and back to 10.3 like most of the time.. But we will see.. Only time will tall..

And what is bad is i cam from a 2001 Dakota R/T with tons of mods and was getting all most 18 out of it.. And my wife's 2002 Durango R/T AWD gets like 22 on the EVIC and all it has is a Mopar Cold Air Intake and Flows And No cat's with Rear 02 eliminators.. And my 06 Dodge has had true dolls and the cat's are pulled and running 40's flows..

It's at about 32k miles, so it's due for new plugs, but I installed the K&N clod-air intake kit about 10k miles ago and hoped that would've helped more. Thanks in advance for your input!
Hi and a warm Carolina welcome to the best RAM ForumZ on the web. How about posting a few photos of your truck? Also, jump down to the Newbie Checkin using the link in my SIG and introduce yourself!

Default Gas milage

Ours currently reads 12, but the highest we have ever see it was 20.8 and that was a long haul for over 300 miles.
