Clutch,

I'm glad to here this. I have put off looking at a new Dodge because of the fuel mileage. My hiway mileage is just above yours, and towing is 12-14. My fuel mileage really jumped up when I hit the 80,000 mile mark. We averaged 14.5 going from Urbana, Il to Mackinaw City, MI., and 20.2 running around the UP.

Regards,

I've got 94,000 on my truck. About a week after I bought the truck new, I put on the K&N cone filter, edge power box, and a 4.5 inch cat back exhaust. It haa a host of other goodies, but what I never liked were the seats. So a year or so back, I broke down and went to Classy Chassis in Valpo, Indiana, and them install a set of custom seats. Wish I would of done it years ago. The back of the front seats will almost go to the bottom of the rear seats! The wife loves them.

Regards,

While no one wants to buy a new or new to them truck and then put more money into it I would highly reccomend an exhaust upgrade on any diesel. It's the cheapest and best mod you can do for it IMHO. Allowing your engine to breath will improve your power and economy. Most stock come with a 3" back exhaust and in some cases it is much smaller than that at bends and some locations throughout the run. I put 4" turbo back, retaining the cat and my mileage went up 2.5 miles per gallon.

Some of the newer diesels, not sure what year are requiring the addition of a emmisions additive that you must add in order for the engine to run properly. I am not versed on this but have heard that it is expensive and does little to enhance mileage but is also an additional factor into your cost per mile.

No DEF for this truck. The truck still has almost 2 years of power train warranty left as it was bought new in June of 2009. I will look into an intake and exhaust in the near future and probably a full DPF delete. 3 more hours until I go see it.
