Hello I own a 2014 ram 1500 4x4 single cab long bed eco diesel. Deleted and stg 2 sft tuned. I now use this truck to run my own small business and drive at least 1000+ miles a week. I carry lots of material and tools for my work but don’t tow much at all and bought a large contractors cap. When I go to weigh myself at local dump I come over the scale right about 6100 lbs fully loaded ready for work, but that’s basically my max payload. When I bought the truck in August it had 94,xxx miles and I averaged 28-30mpg hand calculated that was before it was turned into my work truck , didn’t really haul or do anything for a couple weeks of ownership. Now it’s nov and I’m at 112,xxx miles and I avg 23-24 mpg when I am loaded with cap. is this good?because of high diesel cost Im always wondering and concerned If bought the wrong truck and maybe should have went for a 2500 Cummins or just a gasser due to payload and longevity or something cheaper. This truck is my daily driver and workhorse it gets used every single day. This was a huge investment for Me ($18k)at 19 years old and at the time of buying it I thought it was perfect. Here’s some pics . Let me know what you all think, Thanks.
