The Eco is a great motor , Runs strong with weight and gets great millage when unloaded , I drive over 100 miles a day empty and I average 25 to 26 mpg city highway combined now on the highway the evic say's 31 to 32 mpg at 70 mph , but I never just drive all highway , The truck can pull my lawn service trailer around 8500+ lbs with no problem when needed " I have a 3500 dura max that pull's it everyday other then the 3 days i pulled it with me Eco when the dura max was in the shop , I wouldn't pull that much every day with the Eco it's not rated for it , but it does fine pulling it . The eco is rated to pull between 7800 to 9200 lbs depending on what style truck you have , I am rated @ 7800 with a crew cab and four wheel drive .So pulling the starcraft will be in leagel Limit's and have no problem with the loaded weight even if trailer is maxed out.
Some guy's on the eco-diesel forum are pulling over 12 k with there truck's and they are doing fine so they say , but I would rather have a 3/4 or full ton with that much weight for safty reasons
