2010 Ram 2500 Power Wagon

Hello All, I'm new here and just picked up the above truck. My mileage is at a whopping 10 mpg and I'm looking for ways to improve it. I don't mind a small sacrifice elsewhere. It's a daily driver and fun mudder on weekend, and pulls a camper about 6 times a year. What are the ideas you have tried and liked?

Would a small sacrifice be getting a truck with a cummins?

Welcome to HTC!

Only real way to gain mpg is free up the exhaust flow a little and a handheld tuner!

Whoa, I can usually scratch out 11 in town with my '11. It does better on the highway and best on 2 lane pavement at 55 mph

Welcome btw
