I've read and have been told that my Ram will get the same mileage as my Dakota with the V6. The old Dak runs around 15 -16 in the city and anywhere from 18 - 23 on the highway with an average of 17 - 18 combination city hwy miles. The exciting part is that I will have twice the truck with 10x the horsepower but the same mileage as a mid size pick up. I don't really dwell on the mileage factor when owning a truck. I buy vehicles to fit my lifestyle and lower gas mileage is one of the conditions of having the versatility of owning a pickup.

Anyone know why the EPA ratings on the 2011 is 1mpg higher than the 2010s? And if it actually does get better economy?

I have a 2010 QC Sport 4x4 with about 2500 miles on it and so far I am averaging right at 16mpg. I'd do better if I didnt have to sit in line getting on base in the morning. I am happy with that since thats what I got out of my 07 GMC that I traded in and I have a little bit more power than that 5.3.
