    How to get beter mpg out of v6 08 dodge ram

    Im getting like 12-13mpg in town with a v6 6speed regular ram. Maybe 14-15 on highway, its all stock except for after market rims(20in, deep dish). I was wondering cheaper ways to get better millage besides air intake. If it boosted performance that would be great but not my main concern. Is there any chips that wouldn't void my warranty?

    truck and good mileage dont go together. but try to keep your foot out of it when accelerating if you dont already.

    clean your injectors, keep your foot off the pedal so much. the intake kit would help out some also

    smaller and narrower tires will increse your mpg ...try some 16x6 rims with appropriate tires you should see a 2-3mpg increase....

    you basically have a car engine with a heavy truck on it.. step up to a v8 drive it nice, do the typical intake, exhaust and chip it and call it a day

    If you are going to own a truck, buy the diesel. I can haul 20,000 lbs and still get 18 mpg.

    A "chip" is a waste of time and $$$. It will NOT help with mpg, but actually make it worse.

    If you want to do anything electronically, get a good tune.
    In all honesty, you would probably get better mpg with the v8. That v6 just has to work way to hard to accomplish what it dose.

    But you can do the basics....
    CIA kit, exhaust *may* net you a few mpg, maybe.
    Keep you tires filled to the higher range that your are still comfortable with and look into getting a good induction and top cyl. cleaning preformed.
