    2023 Ram MPG Upgrades - Hemi E-torque

    Has anyone actually had any luck with upgrades that make a difference in MPG?

With all that said, has anyone actually installed anything and...

    Questions for Ecodiesel owners

    Due to putting on 35+k miles a year I'm thinking about swapping the hemi for the ecoD. Not much towing, lots of commute (usually 65 to 75 mph) and then driving on rough muddy jobsites (>10 mph). 1. If I swap to 295/60r20 or 35x11.5x20 tires am I going to hit myself for not getting 3.92 gearing...

    eTorque impact on mpg

    How can eTorque increase the rated mpg by 10%? Is it just from the auto-stops or is there anything else it is doing to impact mpg while driving?

    I recently Bought a 2020 Ram 1500 with the Hemi V8 Etorque. I have put on 2000 miles on the highway with practically no city driving, 500 just picking it up out of state, and my gas mileage is poor, 16-17.5 mpg.

    2019 V6 Pentastar Reviews?

    Hey all. I'm strongly considering getting the 2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn with the V6. I'm tired or reading what the EPA says the mpg "should" be or how much the truck "should" be able to tow. What's it like in the real world? (MPG, towing, overall utility, etc.) Thanks!

    MDS Gear+/-

    Figured I'd post how to turn on/off MDS on here as I was not too familiar with the gear+/- functionality. To turn off MDS I started out putting it in Drive and "then" I would hit - and then + to reach 8, but that is a lot of unnecessary button pushing. Once in drive, no matter what gear you...
