Well I'm sorry to report to all you negative guys out there that I just drove across the northern states from Oakville Ontario Canada to NY city to Spokane Washington to Cranbrook British Columbia Canada AGAIN with not even the smallest of concerns and averaged 25.9 mpg with the cruise at 65-70 awesome trip!

Glad to hear this! I too, just did a road trip with my family but on a much smaller scale. Went from SoCal up to the Sierra's & Yosemite. Did around 24 mpg going there and back averaging between 75-80 (hey it's California and if I go slower I just get passed like it's no tomorrow). Up in the Sierra's however, I did about 60-65 mph average and with that I touched 28 mpg at one point... From a full size truck! You gotta love the EcoDiesel!

I drove from the east coast NC to west coast CA and back towing a travel trailer and I am at 21,000 mi and still no issues for me either with a 14 Laramie 4x4

Congratulations on the great performance and good luck in the future! My problems did not start until I hit about 30K miles. Until then, only non-operational issues (poorly fitting seat cover, loose fog lamp, trim issues, etc.) then the routinely getting 25-30 mpg on my Laramie 4x4 driving in mountainous and semi-mountainous terrain. Then the dreaded CEL issues started. It was like playing CEL roulette In fact, I'm at the dealership as I type this message waiting for the rental car while they replace the SCR catalyst. I'm scheduled to leave for a 2800 mile round trip next week and have more than a little concern the system will fail on the trip leaving me stranded in the middle of nowhere. Hopefully this will fix the problem.
