Gas Pains The extra $9,000 (approximately) you would spend on a diesel- engine option will buy 3,176 gallons of gasoline at $2.83 per gallon, the average price at time of press. Assuming both vehicles get 20 mpg running solo, the break-even point on the investment would be 63,520 miles. However, the manufacturers we spoke with claim a heavy-duty diesel can return up to twice the fuel economy when pulling a heavy load (which coincides with our own experiences), putting the break-even point at around 32,000 miles from a standpoint of fuel savings only.

The blue kit used for the Ram test trucks is the most popular for towing trailers.
