I'm getting terrible gas mileage. Any ideas?
I have replaced spark plugs, put fuel cleaner in multiple times, and replaced air filter. It's an automatic, 4 x 4, small V8.
thats the biggest problem, is its an automatic, is your bed full of shit? if so clean it out, quit haulin stuff around that you dont need, change your oil?, are you running oversize tires? are your tires inflated the right psi? do you commute regularly? are do you just run around town and stop at signs and lights? tthe stopping and going constantly is what kills your mileage, and if you let your truck sit and run for a several hours
this is with the magnum v8 right? if i remember right my friend got 8 mpg with his. the engines just dont get good mileage. nothing you can do about it.
i never got really good mileage with my ram either till i put on a cold air intake and even then it only went from 8 to maybe 12
