Love my new Hemi Ram

Well this Saturday I will have had it for three weeks and so far I love it, I have missed my old 04 QC since I traded it in around 2011. At the time I needed better mileage but looking back I should have just bought a new Ram then instead of the 4cyl Suzuki Grand Vitara 4x4 that I did buy, I was getting 16.8 mpg with that , hell I'm getting 17 with this new Ram already and got three times the power. I am glad to be back!

Technically I did get better mileage than my old 04 Hemi 12.5 max no matter what lol but I'd hoped for better than 16.8 mpg with a four banger, granted it was 4wd and and all wheel drive all the time but if I'd known back then I'd just bought a new Ram.

I usually say don't buy a hemi for its gas mileage, but there are plenty of cars that get worse mileage. The harder you play the more you pay.......
