Hello everyone! Excited about my first 'real' truck. Owned a GMC Jimmy King Cab 4x4 at one time. Good little truck, but it felt more like a SUV. My "RAM" 1500 Ecodiesel Crew Cab definitely ensures me I am in a "TRUCK". Looking forward to reading about everyone's experiences and sharing mine. Had RamDzl (play on name Van Diesel) for a week now and open highway for 300 miles averaged 27.0 miles. My son's friend has an Ecodiesel for a couple of months now and has averaged on a trip 33.2 miles. I have 1500 miles, so I am looking forward to seeing what happens after it a few more thousand.
