Light right foot, empty bed, clean air filter, tires inflated properly... a good CAI and cat-back will help as well

+1.... but an empty bed? Who needs a bed at all in the city?

Less fuel in your tank, smaller wheels, turn it off at stop lights or when coasting (I actually know someone that does that).

But in seriousness, what MrH said are really good things, correct tire pressure, and less junk hauling around, and the less fuel in your tank (gas is 6lbs per gallon) are all immediate things that you can do.

LOL< you use more fuel to start up than you do just sitting at a red light.

Superchips 87 should give you beetter gas mileage.. But in the world of trucks, their is no way to get 30 mpg

I figured the same, that paragraph was more of a joke, cause I knew a guy who used to do that. Sorry, bad joke.

Sorry, but it has been scientifically that each modification done to a HEMI causes a proportional increase in weight of the right foot.

I purchased a jet stream scoop in the last group buy and increased my city mpg by 2 and highway by 4-5, and I have yet to install a K&N filter or change the airbox. I also have the power wire to install offered by the same place. But a heavy left foot hurts especially with a 4X4 mega cab.
