About Ron4969
Biography:
Retired from the propane industry. Most of my vehicles have been propane powered however since I no longer own a conversion shop and there is no one else in the area doing conversions, I decided to purchase the new eco-diesel Ram. I do not need a big 3/4 ton pickup and a year ago we purchased a 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL350 with Bluetec engine. I runs great with plenty of power so I am hoping the Ram with eco-diesel will do the same. I replaced a propane powered 2007 GMC Denali pickup.

    So far I love the truck! Averaged 4.5 L/100 KMS better on the way home compared to driving my 2014 Hemi up to trade in. The air suspension is very smooth, and pretty cool! I like the limited interior...
