Interresting The I learned test driving a 2012

I drove a 2012 today. On my 2010 the evic always reverts back to the radio channel that I.m listening to. I always wished it would always stay on feul economy. On the 2012 I drove every time I restarted it it would always be on feul economy. Is the anyway to make my 2010 always show feul economy when i start the truck?

I doubt it.

That people driving full size trucks are for some reason obsessed with fuel economy?

I do actually get annoyed with the evic. Like why do I have to have a separate little button to reset the trip. Why isn't that all just done on the steering wheel. Also they need to have some other info on the evic so I don't just stare at the fuel econ all the time.

2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel 4x4 CC Laramie.... Bedliner, Floormats, and a toneau. Work in progress.

I did too, but that was because the needle and the speedo were so stinking goofy that I had a hard time knowing how fast I was going without it.
