  2. Mileage with lift kit?

    2014 Dodge Ram Forum
    Hello, I was wondering what kind of mpg you guys are getting with your truck's lift and tires. I recently had a 3" suspension lift installed on my Ram 1500 and have dropped from 18.5 mpg to 12 mpg. Still have stock tires. I spoke to some other guys and their drop in mileage wasn't nearly as...
  3. Maximum 17 mpg only on 2013 1500 4x4

    Dodge Ram MPG Zone
    My 2013 Ram 1500 4x4 only gets 17mpg and often 15 and I wonder why? Even if I drive conservatively I cant get over 18. What could be the possible causes of this and what is the average mpg I should be getting, city, highway and combined? Thanks
  4. 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...

    I have a 2018 5.7 Crew Cab with only 800 miles on it and I can't seem to get over 14.5 mpg and I am babying the gas pedal using the eco light on my dash. By the way you turn on the eco light in the settings on your radio. I want to say the truck was rated 21 HWY and 16 City. My 2015 Durango...

  9. Really Poor Fuel Milage..? 1998 Dodge Ram 1500

    Dodge Ram MPG Zone
    Hello all, I am becoming a bit frustrated in my truck recently. It is a 1998 dodge ram 1500 sport 5.9l auto, and I'm only pulling in around 5 to 6 mpg. Granted I only drive in town, but I would at least expect 10-11 mpg. Here's some more background. About 4 months ago I added a gibson super...
  10. Zone 4" lift (300 mile update and thoughts)

    Custom Chassis - Drive Line, Suspension - Lifting
    Over all, the truck rides much better than stock. I have far less moments where I feel like I'm going to be thrown out of the truck when going over uneven/rough terrain. The truck has less body roll as I go into corners at speed and just has a "solid" feel as you drive it. I've put about...

    Recently leveled my ram and put 33's on it. Gas mileage was slightly effected with the tire upgrade so I decided to buy a tuner to try and regain some of the gas mileage back. After receiving the tuner I researched all over trying to find out which would be the best tune to put on my truck...
