on tue 12 aug 2003 032458 -0500 mike simmons mikesim@fidnet.com wrote it is doubtful that any of the mods you are considering will really improve your fuel economy to any significant degree. not enough to justify the expense imho. you didnt indicate what the actual fuel economy was but i suspect something around 7-10 mpg. yup mike youre exactly right... we get between 10 and 11 mpg when were not towing and between 7 and 8 usually when towing down the highway. keep in mind you have a fairly heavy truck towing a fairly heavy trailer that coupled with the aerodynamic load wind drag of the fiver will cause your fuel economy to be not so good. the best way to improve the fuel economy is to alter your driving habits. keep the speeds to about 65 mph tops. dont use cruise control. when driving in hilly country anticipate your needs by accelerating downhills before reaching the bottom of the uphill stretch. my wife does the vast majority of driving when towing and shes very good at maintaining a steady speed. we keep our speed to generally not more than 65 mph on the highway and especially like it when we can get off onto the small backroads where the speeds are slower. hope this helps! yeah itll keep me from spending a lot of money on intake and exhaust parts that arent going to pay for themselves!!!!! thanks for the info. chryco service manager member sae 1998 ram 1500 4x2 360 auto 3.92 lsd rear. we tow a small 6500 lb 5th wheel. the intake and exhaust are currently the standard stock factory ones. would there be changes that could be made to the intake and exhaust side of things that would improve the fuel economy - especially when towing in the past in this group there have been assertions that adding a k & n intake or other form of cold air intake didnt actually cause an improvement likewise that changing to a cat-back exhaust didnt actually provide an improvement in either power or fuel economy derisively referred to as seat of the pants horsepower. would changing both the intake and the exhaust and adding headers if necessary provide a significant improvement in economy performance is already adequate but since ive already got ot pull at least one of the exhaust manifolds im just wondering if i can improve the appallingly bad mileage by making some changes... .

thats pretty much whta the dealer told me this afternoon - he recommended the 3/4 ton ram pickup. he said the dealerships are not bound to honor any warranties if the vehile has been used for snowplowing. bummer. john i assume the new ones are about the same as my old body style. plenty of horsepower in the v8 but not a lot of naturally occurring weight in the truck itself. i have to put quite a load in the bed so the snow tires get some bite. same problem with a lot of the foreign makes. if you have a lot of snow to plow do yourself a favor and get a full sized 3/4 ton thats set up for plowing from the factory. plowing puts a lot of stress on everything especially when the snow is the heavy wet kind. we use our daks to trim up so to speak and let the major work to our 3/4 tons and the loaders. jim how good are the dakotas from the factory to plow - not commercial just friends and family i am considering a quad cab or club cab. i see a lot of incentives for the 2003 model - cash rebate loyalty college grad. regards john .
