So I do a LOT of driving for my job, and they provide rentals. My rental this time is a '14 Ram quad (correct term?) cab 5.7L with the Torqueflite 8-speed. I have had a very bitter taste in my mouth concerning Dodge from my mom's '09 Journey 2.4L (I know, Dodge and Ram are separated now, and Fiat now has part ownership). I wasn't thrilled when my only option was the Ram. Especially considering they have MDS. Supposedly the technology has improved since '08 (my 1st experience with cylinder deactivation - GM - my sig explains all), but I'll leave this alone. My work drive habits consist of 70% hwy (60-75 m.p.h. using cruise control), 30% city, and typically about two hours of idling each night. I never drive the same route, always varies. Tank filled each night with 87 octane no ethanol (E-0) and fuel economy gauge reset with each fill. So far my lowest average has been 22.1 mpg and my highest 24.8 mpg. The highest mileage at any given time was about 40 miles after filling, and the computer showed 27.9 mpg. After 2,600 miles in the last 6 days, I must say that I am..... impressed. I just wanted to share this, and get other thoughts. But I no longer have a hatred for Chrysler/Ram (at least post-bankruptcy and with Fiat intervention).
