I am currently averaging 14mpg, city or highway(70mph). If I drive 55mph on the highway I can get 18mpg. Have yet to drive in a temp above 30*F. Even at 14mpg, it gets the same economy than my old v6 Dakota.

I have proven to myself that you can get anywhere from 10 to 19. It all depends on the weight of your right foot.

Jay's nailed it. Mileage is the inverse function of the right foot position. More foot = less mileage. This is NOT a function of the Sport. All Ram trucks operate in the inverse function mode.

Additional Ram math facts -
Low mileage = More Fun
High mileage = Boring

Hemi; Mileage; Fun ..... Pick any 2!

When I'm bored, I get ~22mpg on the highway. I don't get bored often

It's funny you say that . My SRT8 car has got what they say it should get maybe even better . 14 in town 23 on the open road at 75-85 with air on . Not bad for a 4200 lb car with two passengers and 425 hp .

3.55 is a good highway gear
if you going to be pulling anything often, you might think about 3.92s though

I have a 2011 sport with 3.92 rear gear ratio. I drive 47 miles one way to work 75 percent hwy. I get 18 miles to the gallon. I use cruise control whenever I can about 67 miles an hour. I have seen 21.5mpg on a straight hwy set at 72mph for 200 miles. But if you drive a lot of city or step on it forget about it! Gas mileage will tank. Just had a bed cover, magnaflow muffler and a aFe cold air intake put on and I am going to switch to synthetic oil first change so maybe mileage will increase alittle. I love this truck though! It is like a truck and a muscle car in one with the hemi!
