Cummins MPG

I have just over 5,000 miles on mine. Averaging about 16.8 based hand calc'd. I do a suburbs to downtown and back drive every day, so, a lot of stop and go. Pure highway driving is around 21. Regens really kick the MPGs way down. I'm averaging a regen every other tank or so (maybe every 900 miles-ish). Haven't towed anything since I have been tracking with fuelly.

I was averaging 15.6 in my F150 5.0, so, doing a little less than 10% better which doesn't quite cover the fuel price difference. BUT, that truck didn't work for me towing, so, kind of a moot point. In any event, I was hoping fuel cost would be close to a wash in the switch and I think it will be in the long run.

The gasser will be cheaper to buy and own, I don't think there is a lot of debating that. However, I don't agree with the math that was presented above... First... most people don't pay MSRP, you'll likely get 10% or more off of that $9100 upgrade, so, call it an $8200 option. When you sell or trade your truck, you recoup some or all of the initial upgrade cost. Unless you are purchasing the truck with the intent to never sell/trade it, the equity has to be considered as well. The higher mileage, the more gap you will see... If you are going to keep it 2 years and trade with 40,000 miles, you probably won't recover the entire $8200 upgrade... but, if you drive it 6 years and 120k, you're going to widen the gap from the same gas truck. 10 years and 200k, and the truck is probably worth more than $8200 more than the same gas truck. Certainly you will have spent more maintaining it, but, you don't need to drive it millions of miles for it to make sense. Not a whole lot of people looking to spend good money on a gasser with 200,000 miles while the cummins is still chugging along for many more miles and has a ton of value left.

Beyond that, there is a "want" factor than no one can figure out for you. I went with the cummins because I wanted it. A gasser would have worked for me, but, I am paying for it and I am the one that gets to make that decision.

2020 Ram 3500 HD Cummins Towing Highway MPG test

Now, it’s Ram’s turn to go up against the TFLtruck’s towing highway MPG test and two of its closest competitors. The truck we are testing is a 2020 Ram HD 3500 crew cab 4×4 Laramie with the high-output Cummins turbo-diesel engine. The truck is towing a 30,000 lbs gooseneck trailer behind it. Let’s see how it does on highway fuel efficiency with this heavy load.

The 6.7-liter Cummins I6 is rated at 400 hp and 1,000 lb-ft of torque. It’s mated to a 6-speed Aisin automatic transmission and a 4.10 rear axle ratio.

Here are the other trucks it’s competing against.

2020 GMC Sierra 3500 HD

The truck being tested is a crew cab 4×4 dually dressed in the top-of-the-line Denali trim with the Denali Ultimate package. Under the hood is a 6.6-liter Duramax turbo-diesel V8 with a rating of 445 hp and 910 lb-ft of torque. This engine is now mated to a new 10-speed Allison-branded automatic transmission and a 3.42 rear axle ratio.

2020 Ford F-350

The Ford is a crew cab 4×4 dually configured with a King Ranch trim. Under its hood is a 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbo-diesel V8 with 475 hp and 1,050 lb-ft of torque. It’s mated to a Ford 10-speed automatic transmission and a 3.55 rear axle ratio in this case.

2020 Ram 2500 Cummins Diesel Yearlong Test: We Get 895 MPG …

… of DEF. But 17.6 mpg on diesel and a 600-mile theoretical range are impressive, too.

Ram 2500 Full Overview

"Four tons of exceptionally capable and remarkably comfortable truck never seemed so thrifty."

Our long-term 2020 Ram 2500 Cummins, Guffman, is gunning for MotorTrend's long-term vehicle mileage record. In its first 299 days with us, it accrued 23,288 miles. Most of these were transporting people to places they'd have flown to in more normal times. Every long-hauler has marveled at the impressive fuel economy and range numbers displayed on the driver information center of this 7,980-pound monster. We've seen highway fuel economy numbers as high as 23 mpg and range estimates of 645 miles or more. How do these numbers square with reality?

On a 1,600-mile run from Detroit to Memphis in April, I decided to probe as much of that estimated range as possible. The "low fuel" lamp illuminated with an estimated range of about 70 miles remaining (500 miles after fill-up), triggering the native nav system or CarPlay apps to ask if you'd like to search for a station. The indicated remaining range number gets replaced with the word "low" at about 15 miles remaining, by which time the fuel gauge needle had dropped below "E." (Thankfully, it's an analog needle, which I find more reassuring than an electronic gauge.)

In my formative years, I owned a 1980 VW diesel and was frequently cautioned never to run it out of fuel, because priming a dry high-pressure fuel pump was a serious PITA. Without having researched the priming procedure for our Cummins, I chickened out at 566.8 miles. But then I only managed to squeeze 28.144 gallons of diesel into the 32.0-gallon tank (at which point a few ounces overflowed to suggest it was indeed full). The math works out to 20.1 mpg—about 3 mpg shy of the computer reading, and apparently 77.5 miles shy of needing to consult the pump-priming instructions on page 428 of the owner's manual.

Turns out Ram probably doesn't need to be so conservative with the gauge, because Ram puts an electric "lift pump" in the tank that effectively pushes the air out of the lines leading to the high-pressure pump in the engine compartment. Here's the priming procedure: Put 2 to 5 gallons of fuel in the tank and then switch the ignition to run (not start) and then back off again—for 30 seconds each—three times. Then start the engine and allow it to idle for 30 seconds before driving.

While we're talking fuel, the Ram 6.7-liter Cummins is designed to burn blends of up to 20 percent biodiesel, and the mostly Midwestern fuel we've purchased—from top-tier brands wherever possible—has typically measured between B2 and B20. The internet is full of cautionary tales about cheap fuels or excess biodiesel causing problems.

Of course, Guffman doesn't drink diesel neat; he requires a misting of diesel exhaust fluid, a.k.a. AdBlue or DEF. In our largely unladen highway-cruising-biased duty cycle, a gallon of DEF lasts 895 miles. It's easy to monitor this tank via the matching analog DEF gauge that sits opposite the fuel gauge. (Ram's heavy-duty diesel competitors rely on electronic gauges you must activate.) Running out of DEF can prevent the engine from restarting. We've learned to add DEF during highway trips, as truck stops stock the handier, more economical 2.5-gallon DEF refill containers, while city stations often only carry the 1-gallon bottles, sometimes without a filler hose.

One Ram DEFiciency: The small, round fuel filler door makes it hard to add DEF while you're dispensing 20-plus gallons of diesel. Just budget time for a hand-washing stop—the DEF refill is frequently messy and smelly, because the hose attachment that comes with most DEF containers generally leaks a bit of this ammonia-based stuff.

In all, we've spent $0.16/mile on diesel and $0.01/mile on DEF—numbers that would clearly rise had we been hauling closer to the 2,020-pound payload limit or towing nearer the 19,020-pound maximum for a significant number of those miles. Then again, if that was our duty cycle, we'd have ordered a 3500 model. We've worked Guffman hard, and he's performed admirably.

Looks good! More details?
