2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: Fuel Economy Update for August

September 5, 2014

2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel

During the month of August, we put 2,272 miles on the odometer of our long-term 2014 Ram 1500, which required just over 100 gallons of diesel fuel. Those miles included the tail end of a road trip where the Ram was busy hauling lots of people and gear, as well as plenty of city miles in stop-and-go traffic.

The truck’s combined fuel-economy seems to be leveling out though, as our lifetime mileage remains the same at 22.6 mpg, just shy of its EPA combined rating of 23 mpg.

Here's the full breakdown of the Ram's mileage. 

Worst Fill MPG: 17.4
Best Fill MPG: 25.5
Average Lifetime MPG: 22.6
EPA MPG Rating: 23 Combined (20 City/28 Highway)
Best Range: 607.3
Current Odometer: 11,256
