Here's a picture I took at the stop sign today, figured since no one believes me, it's a 2012 dodge powerwagon 2500 4x4 with the 5.7 hemi, and yes I do take it quiet easy on it, this is just everyday driving mpg.

the mileage on that dash doesn't mean a thing, my ecoboost will read 50 mpg after reset going down a hill. I did some reading on the 2012 power wagon and they were Quote appalled by the single digit mileage when towing 10,000 lbs. and the best they got was 12 mpg highway. Chuck

And I can pull 15,000 before the mileage is much under 10, I don't keep my foot in it like most people. And there's no ford gonna do what a powerwagon will do, it will go through the steep and deep.

What's that? Ford's not going to stop at every dealership for repiars? :o
Can you please provide proof, from an independant site, not including Ram forum sites to prove that statement? Reviews like from car and driver don't count. All they do is drive a vehicle for a few days and write a review based on how much ad space the maker bought. Lets say by some place that did a real test over several months running, empty, loaded and trailering.

Prove what, the powerwagon is the most capable 3/4 ton truck on the market. Only truck that can rock climb, and do the dirty work, what's there to prove, let's see a ford f250 factory do this.

Ya when I reset it and go down a hill I have had it over 70, but this reading hasn't been reset over 500 miles.

Those mpg meters are known to be optimistic, but aren't usually out by more than 10%, so at worst you're averaging 15.1mpg on that 306 miles. You're still not comparing apples to apples. The man wanted a truck that could acheive good mileage. Any turck with a 4.56 gear set isn't going to acheive that. The Eco-Boost can be had with 3.55 or 3.73 gears and can average over 20mpg. It's good that you're happy with your truck, and it seems to serve you well. Even with 4.56 gears, your truck isn't going to 'play' with 25,000lb gcw. It may handle it OK, but 'play ' is a bit much.

Well when I figure it with paper and pencil miles divide by gallons it always comes out with in .5 of the reading on the screen.

I thought you got 16.8mpg over 306 miles. Just found out DTE means 'distance till empty' The newest vehicle I drive is a 2006 Corolla, a very basic car. Not use to all this computer stuff.

Thought it was destination time ended but you could be right, should have a 28 gallon tank, was an option of 34 or 28 and I think this one has a 28, something most powerwagons have them to be lighter while mudding, rock climbing not sure, so 16.8 is probebly pretty close at around 3/4 a tank
