2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: Fuel Economy Update for September
October 2, 2014
In the month of September, our long-term 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel added 2,400 miles onto its odometer and drank nearly 120 gallons of diesel fuel. That equates to 20 miles per gallon for the month.
Last month the Ram not only did a long road trip with me but it towed a racecar and even did some light off-roading. For my road trip from L.A. to Sacramento, I got 25.2 mpg with mostly highway miles on a mix of the Grapevine and leveled freeway, the A/C on, and hauling just my luggage and dog. Only stopped once in that nearly 400-mile trip and that was just for a bathroom break.
