Our price target will be under $700. Similar to the other Chrysler/Jeep tunes we currently offer.

Ours has a 3.92 axle ratio.

Green Diesel Engineering

You can visit our website to see the tuning we currently offer, it includes the WK sold in 2007-2008. So the new vehicles Ram and GC will be a progression of our current product offerings.

We take our time developing tunes and use the same engineering methodology as the OEMS, i.e. cold testing, hot testing, trailer tow, etc. to make sure the tunes will function well in any driving situation. Prime focus is always fuel economy as we like our tunes to pay for themselves in fuel savings in under 30,000 miles.

Thanks GDE

Mpg

I have new Crew Cab, 4x4, 6'4" Ram box ED. Through 5 fill ups I am getting 22-24 mpg. 50% city-50% Hwy. I drive easy to maximize efficiency but I also haul tools and HVAC equipment. I am hoping truck will loosen up somewhat over the first few thousand miles and get even better mpg. I look forward to a road trip to Santa Fe in a month to see how well it does on 100% highway.

My Evic showed 24.9 and hand calc gave me 24.7MPG, highway 95% highway commute to work and back home. NB CA. Rte 2 is rolling hills, so milage suffers. Truck was completly empty of gear except for me and my coffee.

First fill-up was 24.0 and the last was 24.3. Will only get better I think. 1150 miles on truck so far. This was empty and no hauling or towing.

Well I put my first fillup in my truck. Crew, 4x4, 3.55 gears. Now since the dealership filled it up before I left, figure they barely made it to say full. Area I drive is pretty much as flat as it gets. 50% city, 25%hwy, 25% pulling boat or utility trailer on same hwy. So in US speak I got 17.5mpgUS calculated. Not overly impressed, but will see how it goes.

My first long test drive

I bought my eco diesel in Tifton ga last Wednesday. On Friday I took a trip to Clarksville Tennessee. I reset the fuel economy thingy on the dash, cruse was set around 74 almost the whole way. Hit a little traffic in Atlanta and then over the mountain in Chattanooga, was about 500 miles and when I parked the mpg read 30.2. It was as high as 32.9. And only use 3/4 tank fuel. Awesome. On the way home got 27.8. I was carrying stuff that was above the cab, so had some wind drag. Has now been 8 days and still around 26.7. And that's city and highway. Sure beats my 2012 ram 1500. Never got better than 17.5.
