Fuel mileage poor

Vehicle: 2000 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 SLT 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

I use this pickup for a lot of different things. I pull four wheelers, snowmobiles, have even pulled a backhoe. Good power but don't pass a gas station.




Performance

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 SLT 4dr Extended Cab SB

Truck is primarily used for hauling 5th wheel trailer, a 16,000 pound and recently a 12,000 pound. With V-10 gas engine it takes the hills better than any commerical tractor trailers. With anti-slip differential I have never been stuck where I needed a tow. Fuel economy with trailer is poor, at my normal cruising speed of 62 mph, about 7 mpg.




Work truck

Vehicle: 2000 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 SLT 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

I have 92000 miles on my Dodge, and this truck has worked hard and never gave a lick of trouble. I installed a Banks kit on the truck and it will pull anything and still gets 11 mpg towing.

What's New for 2000

The Ram Pickup 1500 Club Cab models with the 8-foot bed box have been discontinued; also eliminated for 2000 are the 2500 Club Cabs. All Ram Pickups receive a new front suspension and steering system to improve ride quality and steering precision, and 2500s and 3500s have a revised rear suspension for a better ride when loaded. An off-road package is now available for the short-wheelbase four-wheel-drive 1500.
