I have a 3.42 gear ratio and get around 7mpg loaded with 32k. But unloaded around 10mpg
Because I can get 22 MPG with my 3.42's...... empty.yea its taking a lot of fuel off the line to get moving with those short gears for sure. Did you have 4.10's on another truck your used to?
why in God's green earth Ram put 3.42's on DRW work trucks, I have no flipping clue.
My 22 MPG still shows me with a 27 MPH average.The guys getting 22 average are doing a significant amount of highway driving btw. If you doing a majority of in town driving you won’t get anywhere near that. It really depends on your driving conditions.
my truck made like 11-12mpg when I lived and worked in city/town, tons of stop lights, idling and accelerating from zero. When I moved out to the country a little bit, where I hit the highway for 20 miles to get to work, I can now very easily hit 17mpg average without even driving nice, mostly where I’m at these days TBH, If I drive nice I hit 19-20 without much effort. Just understand that when people tell you you’re 8000# truck should be getting 22mpg
what does your daily drive look like?
