Default Re: 2004.5 owners: Mileage, unique quirks

I see 17 mpg also. When I pull my 10k camper I see 10-11 MPG. I went from a V-10 that got 10 mpg, 6 mpg pulling the camper to this. When pulling the camper I went from 6 x 25 gallon tank = 150 miles between fills to 10 X 33 gallon tank = 330 miles. Life is good. [img]/forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cool.gif[/img]

Default Re: 2004.5 owners: Mileage, unique quirks

I seem to be right in the midst of all of you. Get 14-17 around town and pulling 1k 5x8 work trailer. Highway summer fuel 19-21 at 75 or less with empty truck. Pulling current fiver (over 10K) 9.5 to 11. I use MMO & PS regularly and stay aaround 70 MPH.

Default Re: 2004.5 owners: Mileage, unique quirks

I am getting about 13.5-14.5 right now going up and down the road with the edge on all different levels. I went to pick up a dog a few months ago and managed 17.1 to P.A. and back on level three and a few times on level five. I have the low boost all the way up. I usually get about 16.5 in the summer time driving the way I am now. To heck with climatized fuel, I can put my own additives in it to keep it from gellin'.

I am getting about the same as supertrucker. Love the truck, just not overly happy with the mileage. I have two buddies with similar Duramaxes and they get 18-20mpg. What is dodges malfunction with mpg? I have had mine reflashed twice for poor fuel economy, neither of which I can tell a noticable difference.

Sorry, didn't realize I had not changed my sig to show the edge Juice w/attitude.
