    Hey Everyone, I'm looking for a few users of GDE to provide some basic info and data on their fuel economy results. Ultimately I'm hoping to gather up some real world data to influence my decision on buying the GDE tune and report back to the forum so others can make a more informed decision...

  4. 2016 will not stay in 8th gear + poor mileage

    RAM 1500 Diesel Tuning
    I drive highways a LOT for work. Whether I'm doing 80 or 65, the truck just does not wanna stay in 8th, and only stays about 20% of the time when doing 80 if I'm lucky, on very flat roads or downhill. When I'm doing 65 it is a lot better, but SOON as I start going up a hill, or need to give it...
  5. change tire size in ECU for 2016 / figure mpg

    RAM 1500 Diesel Tuning
    How do I do this? I do not want to have to order anything crazy expensive. Also, dealerships will only change it to a factory spec size tire. Mine are larger than anything they offer from the factory. Guess it's saving miles on my truck, thanks Ram! Also, how would I figure my gas mileage...
  6. Towing Travel Trailer at max weight capacity

    RAM 1500 Diesel Towing & Hauling
    I recently towed my 31' Travel Trailer (~8400 LBS) back and forth between New Brunswick, Canada and Florida. It was quite a trip, 3800 MI Round Trip. The truck worked great, rolling at 60-65 MPH. Anything more than that got a little scary with swaying. Averaged around 12.7MPG. Used cruise...
  7. GDE tune installed - waiting for bells to ring and angels to sing (honest assessment)

    RAM 1500 Diesel Tuning
    Aloha, Just installed GDE tune. Thank you for the clear instructions and all the valuable information posted on this Forum. It went in quite easily without issue given its somewhat cramped. I think that I will hang on to the ECM for a couple days to ensure it is running as it should prior to...
  8. 50 mpg!!!

    RAM 1500 Diesel General Discussion
    I am a new owner and forum member. I have to ask, every single mod I read about claims more MPG....If I did them all, I should be getting 50MPG. Are there any legit ones or must do out there? Specifically, highest return for the $ invested and preferably those that wont potentially void a...

    RAM 1500 Diesel General Discussion
    Hi all, I have been following the real time mpg readout on the EVIC for the last several tanks. Turns into a fun game trying to improve my mpg on my commute. I realize the avg MPG on the EVIC is a compilation of the last several hundred miles. However, I've also been tracking my mpg on Trip...

  12. Hoping that I just put my last tank of gasoline in my Tundra

    RAM 1500 Diesel Battlefield
    So, this morning, I'm mixed. I just dumped a "whopping" 18.5 gallons of gasoline in my 08 tundra that has, by and large, treated me pretty good and done what I've asked it to do...faithfully. MPG's and Toyota being behind the ball on new technologies to improve fuel consumption have me trading...
