If you've heard it before and want to post, fine... Give the poster some links, or pass along your special knowledge of the subject.

08 EPA Mileages:

5-Speed Autotic Manual (City/Highway): 34/40
  • Crankcase (qt.): 3.5 incl. oil filter
  • Required Fuel: Premium Unleaded recommended
  • Coolant System (qt.): 4.5.
  • Fuel Tank: 10 gallon – 8.7 with 1.3 gal. Reserve
Yet it seems it is completly contradicted by the events in this post

It took 8.7 gallons to fill the tank.

the competitiveness in seeing who can get the gauge the lowest before fill up is somewhat disconcerting.

lol.
DITTO!!

He's so right! Now why didn't I think of that?

Anyway though, this is an OLD thread so it's not like a new person is asking the question. Just a thread from last year that's been revived...

I did it on purpose one time. All you have to do to prime it is hold down the gas peddle while you are turning the key to start it. It takes a couple of attempts, but will start.

On the other hand, if my 08 Ram Cummins runs out, I call roadside, too complicated for me..
