I have a 2003 1500 quad cab with the 5.7 lite hemi. It has been the
worst truck I have ever had on fuel. I get if I'm lucky about 12 miles
per gallon, I wont buy another dodge after this one. The Hemi is a joke,
I mean i can see using alot of gas if it hadpower but i dont see any
diffrence between the hemi or the standard v8
It still amaze's me that people buy a truck that has the aero of a brick,
then to top it off they add a so called hi-performance engine. Then they
bitch about poor mileage!! I just don't get it. This guy apparantly has
determined that his hemi is lacking in performance. Could it be that he is
driveing with his foot to the floor to make it go fast?
Hmmm... foot to the floor and poor mileage do ya think there may be a
connection? Nah, silly me, no way that type of driveing and shitty mileage
could be related. WTF was I thinking of??
Its a truck, Drive it like a truck, fill it like a truck, use it like a
truck, them park it when you dont need it. I do less then 3000 miles a year
in my truck. My motorcycle does 1,300 miles a month. My Dak gets about
11-12 MPG, no matter what I do. I accept this because its a truck with a V8,
and I like to USE that V8 when ever I can. A tank will last me about a month
and a half.
