with just 800 miles on mine I'm not real happy with gas mileage I'm getting I'm averaging around 15 mpg in my 2011 R/T most of this is city driving traded my R/T charger in on this and it was getting 22-23 mpg so guess that spoiled me but then my 05 Ram Rumble Bee was getting me about 19-20 mpg on avg and that was after mods. So I'm hoping mine does better once broken in.
Good luck with the new truck!!!!

I hope my MPG stays on 16-18 after broken in, if you look all the replays for this tread, everyone is getting around 13-15 tops. I am very happy with the truck, even if the MPG is not that good, I drove a slt 4.7 and didn't like it too much, after driving a hemi 5.7 i knew that will be my truck lol. thanks for the resp. 22dasher

The computer is never accurate. You should always try to calculate by hand.

Default Mpg

Not happy with my MPG-been cold here and with a mix of highway and town getting 11-12 mpg. Like all the other perks on this Laramie but hope fuel usage improves soon or this Ram may be on the Ford lot.
