Sounds great man, good to see that mileage. How's the mileage when towing?

If the Ram with the diesel gets similar mileage, it will revolutionize the 1/2 ton truck market.

My mileage when towing is approximately 20 MPG. Keep in mind that the towing capacity for the Ram 1500 Diesel will be greater than that of the GC, decreasing the MPG.

Yeah but most half ton guys don't tow much more than a bass boat, roughly in the 4-6k range.

I was only referring to towing up to the Ram's capabilities. By doing so, the MPG will be less than that observed in any GC Diesel.
