Why are you nitpicking?
Dodge makes a pickup that they call Ram. That makes it a Dodge Ram. Is a Mustang a Ford? Is a Corvette a Chevy?

And I don't care if my OEM tank is 32, 35, or 36 gallons. When both tanks are full I have over 80 gallons. And the fuel gauge will tell me when I need more.

No nitpicking, just a light stir of the pot, not meant to upset anyone.

Yup mine says X miles until empty, and is pretty accurate.

measure the tank in inches and times the width and the height and length and divide by 231. Gallons will be the answer.

I went one step further and figured out how many gallons were in an inch of depth since my aux tank doesn't have a gauge.
I can put a yardstick down in the tank and calculate the remaining gallons.

My Ford has a 35 gal tank, and I am absolutely sure of that!

I am sorry but your truck is NOT a Dodge and in fact it is a RAM plain and simple. Facts are facts.Thru model year 2012 they legally had to have ONE place that said Dodge until the legal title became RAM in 2013.

My 11 and my Dads 12 above the radio in the indentation said "DODGE" now since then they all say RAM.

It may not say Dodge on the side of the truck, but it is purchased at a Dodge dealer.
Out of curiosity, does a Mustang have the word Ford on it?

I am sure the door jamb label says Ford Motor Company.
