I see you've got 3:55 gears in you Dodge. I need to go to the Powerstroke forums and get some opinions on how much towing power I'd lose going to a lower (numerical) ratio. Diesels have so much low end grunt maybe it wouldn't be that much. Straight and level, no load, that should have a noticeable impact on mileage.

Actually with a lower numerical ratio, I'd just have to drop it out of overdrive a little sooner and downshift sooner on the hills. We have some of those around here.
