Most likely you should have started a new thread on this. This is a really old one that you added to.
Yes, very normal. On average, no matter what TT you tow or tow it with, you can expect 8-12 mpg. It varies due to engine size/power, gearing, and conditions. Keep in mind that you are towing a box down the road and by doing so you have the aerodynamics of a brick. To get an idea of what strains your vehicle is up against, hold up a 4'x4' sheet of plywood and run into the wind. You get the idea.
