Does the "Range" mean miles remaining at that average?

80% at 360 miles towing is a nice range.

Yes, that is exactly what it means. This truck has a range that far exceeds my own personal range.

Well, the latest work truck carries 270-gls/diesel. At 80% at 5.1-mpg the range of 1,100-miles just means I have choices about where to fuel. Not to do with rest breaks, legendary BBQ or other where I might fit that rig off to the side of the road a few moments.

Legendary BBQ. Now you have my full and undivided attention!
Cooper's in Llano is the benchmark for me.

2014 RAM 1500 EcoDIESEL has arrived!

Just don't stop for the one in Junction.

Parking is the real problem.

Although you may not come this way, Smoliks in Mathis next to the Shell convenience/McDonald's right at the I37 Interstate x35 or so offers smoked chicken worth the stop. Best I've had in this life.

Too bad Hinzes in Wharton burned.

A hard to park rig and great BBQ are an art in fast in/out otherwise. A ticket worth the cost, ha!

Camping in the woods

I took my boys camping in the Davey Crockett National Forest.
It was nice to have the peace and solitude that you can only get boondocking.

We were close to Mission Tejas, so we poked around there a bit.

Top just saw your lovely pictures. The March Photo Contest theme is "Spring" and some of those photos would go nicely.

Skinning the opossum took up most of the allotted meal prep time.

Those so called tests with so called experts who wouldn't know how to discuss operational cost long term by keeping engine load percentage down as a strategy once more offer up worthless chatter. Hustlers. I like Mr Trucks work, in main.

Thirty years ago no car was maintaining the speed limit or even close to it on mountain passes. No more important then than now. Except to the clueless.

It's a sad age we live in that online one has to explain over and over how to calculate mpg. It's over, if anyone is still wondering.

lol while I agree with all this, that's not nearly as entertaining. Thus why give people truth/facts when you can appeal to emotion. Ah, the problem with all modern day "journalism"
