1996 Dodge Ram 1500 - Better MPG's


Recommended Posts

Well I took a trip down to Ontario, OR to put fresh rubber on the 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 for the first time in 10 years. :duh: I desided to take the ScanGauge II for the trip and see if all my tinkering actually helped. I'm proud to report for traveling from New Meadows, ID to Ontario, OR I barely made 17.0 MPG... On normal old 87 octane gasoline. Threw a set of fresh 235/85 R16 to the truck and headed for home with a full load of fuel and groceries... But here is the twist it started raining just as we left Ontario, OR temp fell to about 40-45*F and flooded the highway fairly well. Still pulled 15.3 MPG rolling in the yard. I'm a happy 96 dodge Ram 1500 owner... :thumbup2:

Not too bad, considering its about all uphill on your way home too. I've been tweaking my driving style on my little man-wagon and am seeing a 10-15% increase in fuel economy according to the SGII, I have been able to break 40 on 2 separate trips home from work now!
