I stopped worrying about it. LOL We tow bricks and it seems no matter the TV, the mileage is all in the same ball park.

I pull my X20E Hybrid with my Tacoma, I get about 10-12 towing. Worse if there is a headwind or lot's of steep inclines.

We just returned from a trip to the Williamsburg VA area. From the NE corner of PA to Chippoke's Plantation SP. About 900 mile RT. Averaged just a bit over 11 towing and about 18 without the brick. 2004 Silverado with a 4.8 V-8 pulling a 2016 26BH. I'm pleased

11.5 is my average in CO. I eventually have to get down off all those mountains, so the numbers each direction are extremely lopsided.

During our summer trip from Arkansas -> Yellowstone -> Black Hills -> Arkansas, I was getting anywhere from 9mpg to almost 12mpg. It just depended on hills, winds, and how far we had to go to the next stop. If it was a long haul, occasionally would hit 65-70mph on the flat sections, otherwise, tried to keep it at 60mph. Noticed the best mileage during the 60mph days.

The 4.6 in the Explorer Sport Trac averaged 8.5 on two very long trips over the Rockies and back over the last two years. Worst mileage was achieved in Nebraska (6.0) and the best in Wyoming (11.5). Seems gasoline must aspirate at a better rate in thin oxygen of the mountains than in the headwind in a flat place like Nebraska.

The new (to me) F150 delivered 10+ mpg on it's first 200 mile pulling the 20 MRB.

Gas Mileage

I get an average of 9 Towing, best of 11.2, worst 6.9 @ 60-65 MPH. I tow in central Texas (slightly hilly), and down to the coast (flat but occasional headwinds).
Around town driving with no trailer averages 12.8.
TV is a 2015 F250, 4x4, Crew cab, Long Bed, 6.2 gasser with 3.73 rear.
The 28RBDS as we load it is probably 8K lbs. Need to get it weighed.
I'm very happy with the setup.
