2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: Fuel Economy Update for April
May 7, 2014
Our long-term 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel promises to deliver stout fuel economy without compromising on trucky capability. We've only got a hair over 2,000 miles on our brand-new steed (sheep?), so it's too early to deliver any kind of verdict on the fuel economy front, natch.
In any case, we've put three fills into it so far, and it's running close to its EPA combined estimate of 23 mpg. Remember, this is a half-ton, crew cab pickup truck that weighs as much as Nassau Coliseum.
Worst Fill MPG: 21.4
Best Fill MPG: 25.3
Average Lifetime MPG: 22.9
EPA MPG Rating: 23 Combined (20 City/28 Highway)
Best Range: 600.0 miles
Current Odometer: 2,016 miles

Note: Cars are sometimes refueled before their fuel tanks are nearly empty. As such, "best" and "worst" fuel economy entries above are not necessarily the result of an entire tank's worth of driving.
