Asked by Sep 17, 2016 at 03:47 PM about the 2004 Dodge Ram 2500

Question type: Car Customization

Truck has less than 61,000 miles on it. Is twin cab, short bed with Rhino
liner.
I am a woman with no mechanical knowledge. This was not our primary
vehicle, but my husband died and I sold his toyota tundra because it had
so many miles on it. I do have friends who own newer Dodge trucks and
can do installs for me. I want to be able to look items online for price
ranges.

Best way is to modify the way you drive, Look on the net for the best driving habits to increase fuel economy. Right foot to heavy. Stay away from the gimmicks that say this item will give you better gas mileage. They make money mining the miner for example every gold miner needs a better set up to find gold and a seller with all the new tools is always there with a high price shovel. Make sure air filter and service is up to date. Keep tire pressure at the tires recommended pressure on side wall. Leave earlier or later to avoid high traffic areas. Other items that can help like better exhaust will cost a fair amount of money and time to offset the initial cost of it. Get the mid grade fuel. No need for top grade it does not help enough to offset is price but lowest grade burns up faster with less power.
