On my recent trip to Chilliwack with 2014 Ram Hemi with 8 speed and 3:21, un hitched, I average 21 mpg over 3,019 miles and 60 mph avg speed over 50 hours driving. My speed was always at the limit, from 65-80 down to 50 in construction. We stop avery 2-3 hours for the dogs and fuel.

It think it's safe to assume that was supposed to be "Hemi"... meaning the gas V8 engine, not the EcoDiesel.

If you do a Google search of EscapeForum.org for "ecodiesel", you'll see a few directly relevant threads.
