I just got back and my EVIC is showing 10.5 Liters/100kms. That's 26.9 MPG Imperial or 22.4 MPG US. Pics of my EVIC in US and Metric are attached. So it seems like the Flowmaster 40 is letting my HEMI breath a bit easier. So far I'm very happy with the results and it sounds awesome as well !!!!

are you still seeing the same kind of mileage?

Haven't done a long highway drive yet to compare however the Evic is currently sitting at 13 liters/100km. Before the muffler swap it settled in at around 16 or 17 with my normal driving pattern. So yes it does seem to be holding.

Where did you buy the Flowmaster? I live up near Peterborough, so I have access to the same stores as you.
Thanks,
Dave

Hey Rans Ram are you still getting the same MPG these days? Has your computer done anything yet? Still holding at 16? Thanks in advance for your reply.

Going on a road trip with the new truck to Salem Mass on the 11th of June. I just did a Magnaflow 18" and a K&N drop in filter. I'll post back here and on a new thread with my mileage results when we get back.

Interesting. I have found mine to like the gas. I know it's a Hemi and should expect it, but I had a 94 Ram, with the old 318 and it got on average 16 mpg. Now it was a single cab long box, but I thought with 16 yrs technology and a new truck it'd get about the same, but it's been getting worse. Of course the dealer told me that the mileage actually kicks in around 20,000 kms, and I'm only at about 6,000 kms. (100kms=62miles). This is something that maybe I should try.

However, I did take it down to Syracuse N.Y. last weekend and my EVIC said it averaged 21 mpg on that trip. It's about a 3 hr drive one way.
