Overall those are great numbers, but as always as you might have seen me mention before, real world numbers are where its at for me.
With tow loads are another key thing. At least with the numbers people post we'll get a good idea of what we can expect. I think Ram should be doing this, giving us this info in detail.Yep.. Real world mileage and how the mileage is affected with a load or tow.
that is true.You will lose mileage but it WON'T be "just as bad" as the loss seen in gasoline engines. Diesel engines don't have as wide a swing in numbers as the gas engines do
True, but real world numbers on diesel engines are much closer to the ratings because they don't have such wide swings at gas engines do.
We all know when looking at EPA MPG numbers that "Your mileage may vary". And in the real world, you will not be able to bank on getting 28MPG all the time with the ecoDiesel. But you can bank on getting consistently BETTER MPG than you would be getting with a gas engine. And most likely, the real world numbers will be more impressive because even though the Ford ecoBoost supposedly gets 22MPG, nobody I know gets close to it. They all seem to run around 13-18. On the other hand I truly believe that many ecoDIESEL owners will run within the 20-25 MPG range.
Thats a good way to call em outI wonder how long it will be before the ford guys invade the forum. You know those for guys ! Ford is the best...... NOT ! LOL
