From George A. – "Here is a picture of the dash of my 2014 Ram 2500 4x4 manual transmission crew cab short box pickup. The trip was Boise-Billings-Boise over this last memorial day weekend. I had installed the Banks Ram-Air kit. The truck was not loaded – no trailer. I drove the speed limit up to 70 mph. The MPG shown I am sure is at least 1 MPG (or better) than I have ever gotten before on that trip. In any case, I think 24.1 is pretty good for such a vehicle."
