Nice truck!

I hope to get 12 MPG with my 3500 6.4L, but I am not planning on it. As living on the high altitude and crossing over 10,000 ft passes with the TV and TT I know that just will not happen.

My 2014 Ram CTD 4X4 Towing 17.5K got 11mpg. That was as good as it got. The milage got better at around 16,000 on the clock.

My new Ram 3500 DRW, With the 4.10 gears and Aisin trans, towing the same 5er is getting 10.2 mpg, but the Trans and coolant doesn't get hot pulling steep grades like the 2500 did with the 3.42's .

I run Diesel Clean in the tank now also to increase the Cetane %.

I guess you mean "ALL" newer SRW. My 2004.5 has the Cummins 600 and 3.73

Nice pickup by the way. The 2014 I had was the absolute best truck I ever owned. Super super capable. Once you drive a nice diesel truck, you will never go back to a gasser.
