How can I improve the fuel mileage on my new 2013 Dodge truck with the 5.7 Hemi Engine
I would like improve my fuel mileage on my new 2013 Dodge Ram 5.7 Hemi engine? Has
anybody installed the performance chips or anything else.
...well you might be mindful of needless accelerations....so the guy behind you gets a little testy...big deal...you don't have to impress anyone with your rapid acceleration...if not haulin' take the economy car instead~
The obvious is a ring & pinion / smaller rear end gear ratio but acceleration will suffer but top end & mpg will improve. Example like a 4:10 ratio changed to a 3:23, bigger dia. tires pumped up hard ,for less rolling resistance, smaller mm fuel injectors? a flush hard bed cover for better air flow, that bed catches too much air & drag, & look into finding & buying a "Hone-O-Drive" unit that mounts to the rear housing, people have been successful with these on RV's & Hummer's (if you can find one) it adds an overdrive gear up to your final drive.
best way to get better fuel milage put a cold air intake on and a good cat back system it does help and gives you some more power
get a diablo trinity along with intake and exhaust it gives you better mileage I have one being hard on the gas i get 13.9 mpg
I have a 2013 RAM 1500 Quad-Cab 4x4. I average around town about 16-17 MPG. On long haul trips with cruise on I get about 17-17.5 MPG, without cruise on I Avg. about 18.5-19 MPG. The newer 2015-2016 1500's offer better MPG, but you lose some of the horsepower of the "HEMI." Sure wish they'd have not cut corners with the "HEMI" edition. I wouldn't mind the MPG if it were a true HEMI (426 cu. in.).
