Just bought a new 2017 Ecodiesel CC Bighorn 4x4 with 3:92 gears! Wow, quite a lot smoother than my 05 hemi was. Dealer gave me $10,500 for my almost 280,000 mile 05. Then took off $6,000. A guy called me, that had just bought my 05 from them for$10,500, said it would make a nice companion for his Hellcat! Can't believe the mpg's with this Diesel! First tank will go over 30 mpg, I believe, 29.8, now!:smileup:

My 2016 ecodiesel averaged 25.7 MPH, San Diego Ca to Danbury Ct
It has 35,000 miles on it currently

That is what my EVIC reads, i don't care what it actually gets MPG wise, not worth doing the math

I have a 2017 Bighorn hemi as a company truck, the Eco Diesel is my personal truck, and I love em both! Can't seem to crack 30 mpg, it's in the 29's right now. Easier to "hyper mile" than the hemi, but I've hit 25 mpg a few times with the hemi. If I can keep it out of the city, the Eco Diesel is impressive!

Love the mileage with the Ecodiesel

I'm getting 25 right now. Only have 1800 miles on it though, so I'm hoping it might even get better!

If you can get 25 with a Hemi then you can probably get 35 with the Ecodiesel

They have an APP for that. LOL Yeah, I have noticed the EVIC does go to generous side, as far as reporting mileage per gallon. I use my Fuel Log app on my phone. I trust it more than the EVIC. "Of course you mileage may very... " :SHOCKED:

Congrats on the new Ecodiesel. There's been a lot of members here recently that seem to be picking those up.

Because the EPA finally bugged off and let Ram sell them again

OK, now with almost 3,000 miles, I am very impressed! Realize, I'm in Maine, almost no city driving and rarely go over 65, I have broken 30 mpg on a tank, last tank is averaging 30.5 mpg! I keep forgetting that it's a diesel, I know you should let it idle down a bit before shutting down..... Next goal= to get over 800 miles on a 26 gallon tank.:smileup:

That would be impressive; I've got 700 out of a 32 gallon tank with my Hemi and thought it was phenomenal
