Low gas mileage

My 2003 dodge ram 1500 only gets 12.3 gpm and my emissions light is on. Is there a way I can check this my self or does this truck usually get this kind of mileage?

    12.3 gallons per mile??? I had a racemobile that got better mpg than that!!! (2.5mpg)
    Really... if you meant mpg, I have a friend who has one and his is about the same...was better 'till they started putting ethanol into our fuel!!

04 dodge ram pickup has code po 456 what is this code? 04 dodge ram 1500 5.7 engine gas mileage has gotten worse.


Small leak in evaporative emissions system. Basically takes fuel vapors and recirculates them back to engine to be burned rather than vented into the atmosphere.One common cause of light on dash is faulty/dirty gas cap seal. Did you add fuel just before light came on? Otherwise a small leak at a hose etc., in system, as well as faulty purge system may also cause it.

Emissions failure due to an evap code


Your emission sensors seem to be just a 'spec' out of normal (I would not call them defective!), but it could also be tainted fuel. Just to pass test I would buy the gas treatment at your local auto parts specifically for emission testing. Ask them at the counter. It will get you passed.

2005 dodge Ram 1500 truck 5.7 Hemi check engine lights comes on


Two things you want to know about the check engine light on any vehicle. One is it's an emission warning. The most common cause is a loose gas cap, make sure it clicks when you gas up. Second, is that being an emissions light, is that it'll require some test equipment to find the problem if you checked the gas cap and it's tight. You will want to do that at your friendly Dodge dealer. Why? They'll not only know what it is, it might be fixed free in the emissions warranty which has some parts that are covered longer than the vehicle's regular warranty. The shop on the corner doesn't do warranty work and they're not going to tell you if it might be covered.

Diagnostic code P0456 for 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7


P0456 = EVAP Emissions Control System Leak Very Small

Is the gas cap on tight or is the seal damaged? If it needs replacement, get it from the dealer.
