    Mine was an 84 Ramcharger... Miss that truck everyday... Other than the fact that the carburator sucked and I had to keep the foot on the throttle for 10 minutes until she got up to temperature or she would stall... lol

    Mine wasn't a Dodge at all. It was a Plymouth. 1976 Trail Duster with a factory Meyer. Found a pic of one like it.

    Another I miss alot. It was an 01.5 CTD 2500 Sport edition, not the best on fuel but sounded awsome.

    Had the same truck but a 150 with a western and yes it was thirsty. Bought it off my grandpa after his stroke and the doctors told him he was no longer allowed to drive. Man that pissed him off

    What do you drive now that is better on fuel ?

    my first dodge plow truck is a 02 2500 CTD

    All CTD diesels are good on fuel. The second gens24(15mpg) valve ho's are a little more harsh on fuel where the 06 and p pumpd 12 valvers are about the same 20mpg.

    The biggest dictation on fuel milage is i the gearing. Manuals with 3.23's are the best. Anything with 4.10 rear ends will eat fuel.
