Gotcha. My 2012 2500 HEMI im getting 13.5 hwy ( with larger tires and wheels and tools in back) and towing the worst ive seen is 7.5 fighting a huge head wind. I usually average 10 towing across the board. I have driven and also tow with a lot of the newer diesels and too be honest from my experience they all average 10-12 mpg towing. Unless like i said before ya delete em but in that case you have no warrenty either.hope this helps some in your decision processs. Keep us updated on what ya do

Well right now I get 7 mpg towing. I'll take the 12-14 with the diesel. I hate making big decisions. I'll go to the dealer Thursday and talk some more. Maybe ill walk out with a new truck. Maybe I won't haha
Right after I got rid of my diesel in 2006, I moved to a 2500 hemi, and I just remember how much happier I was towing and plowing with that damn diesel...should have kept that truck back then

My last truck was a 07 3500 4x4 with the 6.7. I was averageing 13 normal driving and about 10 when towing. I traded it on an 08 megacab with the hemi. It is getting about 14 normal driving I havent calculated fuel while towing yet but I must say I miss the power of my diesel when towing.

Was going to go CTD route but wanted to keep my warranty and I only drive 5 miles to work one way never would get the diesel warmed up. My 2500 hemi will be here tomorrow or Monday.
