Two Question, every opinion or piece of info helps.

I have a 2010 1500 Single Cab 5.7 Hemi Short Bed, in the city I get around 12.3 MPG on a good day I usally just drive it around for 3 or 4 Miles to school or to a store. So the first Question is: Is this an OK MPG?:4-dontknow: and my second question is: What is the price with labor for a new windshield? MY windshield is still good, it doesn't have any cracks but small chips in it. It almost looks like I have tiny raindrups on my windshield all the time :sad:

Thanks for the help

Your MPG does seem low but "city" driving is not ment for large V8 pickups... As far as your windsheild that seens more of a defect. Any pics??

Doesn't sound good to me but with such short distance driving, you're hardly getting it up to operating temp. Need to get it out on the highway once in a while and stretch its legs some. Mainly city driving is a killer for fuel mileage. Not sure about the windshield repair, though, I'm sure someone here has some advice on that.

@ Ram10tuff: This is true, it isn't really a problem that I have to get gas more than a four banger. But I want to know if its normal to see if everything is ok with my Ram, and for the pictures of the windshield, I will make pictures soon.

@ Cajundodge: I have remote start so 90% of the time I will warm it up, eventhough it is a Truck I want to baby it. and once in a while I do take it out on the Highway and then I see the MPG getting better :)
