Default First road trip with new Ram

I'll be making my first lengthy drive ( approx 700km) with my new truck today and I'm interested to see how my mileage will turn out. The drive will be from Calgary to Edmonton and back which is a pretty flat straight route.

I had an '11 CC with the 4.7L engine this past summer and I could get 24.5 mpg highway with that truck. I'm really interested to see the difference between the 2 vehicles. The truck has 2200km on it now.

So here are the results: 528 km, 85.04L, 16.11L/100km. Its a little higher than I expected, but its a big truck and it is what it is. The best part of it is that fuel cost $0.979/L
