I get about 15 normal conditions, down to 9.5 towing. 26 gallon tank means more frequent stops for gas on a long haul. I estimate about 200 miles every fill up

We use about 30% more fuel when towing. We visit friends near where we camp using the same truck.


Without the trailer, a full tank of fuel gets us from home to the vacation spot and then back to civilization.


With the trailer, we have to stop for fuel while still on the Interstate, about 3 exits short of our exit. That fill-up will take us into the wilderness and back out (depending on side trips).

Average 10.8mpg towing, 17-20mpg not towing. The 10.8 is an average over last season's camping with about 3K miles. Think the worst I got was 10.2mpg. Mostly cruising at 58-62mph.

We get around 16mpg combined (more highway than city) without the trailer. When towing we get about 10-12 depending on conditions.

Wow, with such a broad range of TVs and camper sizes/weights I really expected a much broader range of gas mileage numbers, but everyone seems to be at 9 to 12 MPG.

How many track exact mileage by writing down your odometer readings at every fill up vs guesstimating based on about how far per tank of gas?
