  1. Curious about your fuel mileage

    Camping Zone!
    I was just curious what folks were getting for mileage with their loaded trailers. I have always been curious what the ecodiesel would get towing a similar load, but, that would require the 3.92 gears to get about 8500# max towing. I have the 8 speed trans, 5.7, and 3.21 gears. On my last trip...
  2. 2012 Ram 1500, weak and horrible gas mileage

    2012 Dodge Ram Forum
    Hello all, So I was on my way back to KC when I noticed my truck started feeling like I had 7000lbs behind it. It just didn't want to go up hills or accelerate at all. Any incline and it would kick out of OD and fall on its face before finally wrapping up enough to hold 75MPH. It also...

    2013 Dodge Ram Forum
    I have a 2013 Express Crew Cab 2wd with about 98500 miles on it. When I first got the truck in 2015 I had 54700 miles on it and if I drove it right no speeding and no hot rodding I could easily get 17 in the city and 21/22 on the highway. Well at 89000 miles the cam went out in the truck and...
  4. Crappy gas mileage pulling trailer.

    2011 Dodge Ram Forum
    According to the truck computer, we get about 16l/100km (14.7mpg) gas usage on our 2011 Ram 1500 Sport. That's with the 5.7l Hemi. Not the greatest, but it could be worse. When we pull our camper, the mileage ends up being around 30l/100km (7.8mpg). That is crazy. The last camping trip we got...
