Hey fellas,

I have an '08 RAM 1500 4x4 with the Hemi. It's been a very good truck with very few problems.

I use it for work and may need to replace it for a new business write off.

I also have a 2013 VW Jetta sportwagen TDI. The fuel economy is spectacular at 50 mph on the highway.

I've seen the ads on TV and the truck sounds interesting. A friend who follows auto forums told me that there are reported problems with the how the diesel vapors are recirculated and utilized. I believe it has something to do with problems with the emissions systems. He said there are reports that there are known problems with this engine.

I don't know anything about it. What can you fellas tell me about your experiences with this ecodiesel engine. And how many miles have you put on it?

Thanks for the replies

I also keep my vehicles for a
Long time. The Hemi Ram 1500 has been very good. I can nurse it to almost 20 mpg on flat Long Island highways. But whenever I tow a 3 position loaded Atv aluminum trailer upstate my gas mileage is terrible @ 10 or 11 mpg.

How much are the 1500 RAM ecodiesels going for loaded? 4 door w/ 6' bed. Just trying to get a basic idea.
Thanks for all the helpful information
