I have the 318 in my durango and it gives me on average of 18 to 20 l/100 kms
though I have had it as low as 16 L/100km but I like to give it a bit of Gas and dont like driving like im driving grandma.
I think its about the same in the ram body the 360 doesn't give you much worse economy but you get the extra bhp and torque.
You can get a fair bit more after market stuff for the 360 if your looking to modify the engine.

you'll be in drive more often as your foot wont be in the pedal as much so you'l get about the same mileage

hmm could always supercharge the 360 if you want bad gas mileage would give you big power though for about $4500 US

Don't waste your time putting the 318 in. The gas milage won't be as problem compared to the lack of torque in the 318 compared to the 360. A good 360 4bbl is the best stock motor option you can go with as far as a small block goes...i have 6 different power wagons right now and have had almost every kind you can think of. If you need any kind of motor or any other parts for that matter... I have it.
