What's your MPG?

Being gas seems to be getting to be the issue again this season, what kind mpg you getting?

I am getting 9.5 at 55 mph towing the 29a, 2400 rpm and overdrive off.

Well I get between 7.5 to 11mpg. When pulling 10,500lbs into a 30-35mph head wind I get 7.5mpg, but with a 5-10mph wind I get 11mpg. I tow at 62mph

I get 12 mpg towing my 9000 lb trailer with the new Duramax 3500HD.

I was happy to get 8 mpg with my previous Suburban K2500 with 8.1 ltr engine and 4.10 differential. If there was a strong headwind, I'd get 6.

I typically tow at 63-65 mph.

Please state if this is measured (do the math) or your truck's computers guess

My truck got 11-12MPG measured average on a trip from NM to Yelllowstone. I pull around 7000lbs.

I'm happy
