Default First fill up

Well had my new ram about 2 weeks now and did my first full fill up.

All I have to say is !!

I am coming from a Nissan Frontier which at most I only put 17 - 18 gallons in at once. Amazing how much longer it took to put 25 in and this thing hold 32 total?? LOL

Guess I'll have to get used to that, and try to keep it in ECO mode when I can LOL!

Still a great truck though!

Good thing gas is going down a bit for now. Better enjoy it while you can, paying 75+ to fill up isn't fun.

No $75+ isn't very fun. The nissan was constantly about $75 to fill up as it wanted premium fuel. This fill up was right at $90.... bit of a change lol

These are thirsty beasts. Regularly costs me $120 to fill up. So I just save up spare cash in between fill ups and it doesn't really feel all that bad. It might be expensive to fill up, but it's so worth it!

It is so. Almost $4.50 per US gallon or $5.30 per imperial gallon. Oh yeah, that is regular. My DTS is over a hundred to fill as well. We get bent over pretty well on fuel up here in the Great White North.
