I have a buyer's guide for these trucks from 2012 on back. If you you would like I can send it to you. Just send me a PM with a good email address.

The 11/23/2015 edition of the Chicago Tribune reports a new Cummins option with the all-new Nissan Titan XD. "Nissan exploits the gray area between light- and heavy-duty with the all-new Titan XD that uses a 5.0-liter Cummins turbo-diesel V-8 engine delivering 310 horsepower, 555 pound-feet of torque and 12,000-pound towing capacity."

Hi Kevin. Ok, not sure I remembered accurately, so I went to the receipts for the trip up and back. I do recall seeing a '21.6' on the mpg readout during the trip up.

Anyway, these are per the miles driven and gallons pumped:

From picking up the truck at the Tampa dealer, to the Exxon station outside of Lakewood the night before we picked up the Airstream: 19.0 mpg

(This includes one tank running around Tampa.)

From Colonial back to Tampa down I95: 13.2 mpg

Truck is a 2016 Ram CC CTD 4x4 with the 20" tires.

All my mileage figures are hand calculated. I have no such computers on mine.
