    My 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel Limited is likely one of the best vehicles I have ever owned. Bought it for the diesel - but absolutely love it for the engine, the 8-speed trans and the air suspension. It is a very comfortable highway cruiser and like any vehicle mileage is dependent on speeds. Keep it at 65mph or less and it will get 30mpg all day long. Pick it up to 75mph, and it still get 24-26mpg.

    We have both a Featherlite open and an enclosed trailer. Neither are a challenge for the ED - but obviously better mileage with the open trailer. Towing from LA area to Thunderhill, for example with speeds at 70-75, it will often still break 20mpg.

    The factory 4-wheel air suspension is amazing. As soon as you put some hitc weight on it, it gets busy with leveling itself out. Interior on the Limited is ultra-nice and better than both Ford and Chevy IMO - although I rate the exterior styling a 3rd against these worthy competitors.

    We upgraded the fuel tank to 40 gallons and now enjoy 1000 mile + cruising range. I LOVE this truck!

    I need to figure out how to boost the tank size on my 2500 HD. It's only 26 gallons, just like a half ton.

    Maybe put an expansion tank in your truck bed?

    Titan fuel tanks makes some products that replace the oem tank with a larger tank. I considered it once but then decided the cost wasn't worth it.
