    2016 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is mine!

    I picked up my 2016 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel a few weeks ago during 'truck month'. With the ~$6000 on incentives, my company's discount, and my trade in of my (beloved, but it was time) 2005 Ram 2500 w/Cummins and w/194,000 milese, I felt like the time was right. I echo (eco - hehe) the comments...

    Cold Weather Options: Heaters for Fuel, Tank, Engine

    I have been doing searches for cold weather options (heaters and ways to prevent the cold from affecting my 2 vehicles: 2006.5 Jetta TDI & 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins). I already use a couple of these options, but decided to share some of my research with everyone. The purpose is to put this...

    Ram 2500 - 746 miles on one tank

    I was pleased to see that the max distance traveled in my truck now rivals my TDI. I had to drive from PA to GA yesterday, I wasn't in a hurry, so I drove the speed limit or 5 above the whole way (with a few short bursts). My goal was to make it to the Greenville, SC area (a spinx station that...

    Happy Thanksgiving to me! I bought a 2005 Ram 2500 Crew Cab 4x4 last weekend. I love it! It's a little louder and bigger than my TDI Jetta, but that's ok. It's only got under 31,000 miles on it and it's in great shape. Pretty loaded from the factory (heated leather, sirius, bedliner, tow...

    Add me to the list of TDI owners that had their spouse fill the tank with gas. (to be honest, I thought the wife would have done it sooner rather than after 8 months of driving it). Luckily, she didn't get too far before it died....just across the street into a parking lot...but there was...
