Actually, I agree with this!

I don't really worry about fuel economy much any more. I'm out there to have fun, and fuel is part of the cost. I'm thankful that cost has returned to what I consider "reasonable" recently. As long as it's consistent (a significant change in fuel economy can indicate a problem), I'm really okay with it.

Would I like to have better fuel economy? Well, sure! Who wouldn't?! But I'm not going to lose sleep over it. My daily commute is 7 miles, so I don't really worry about it from a daily driver perspective. Our highway travel is pretty limited. We visit family about 3 hours away about once a month (we use DW's Acadia for those trips which does pretty decent on the highway and is very comfortable to drive for long trips), and we tow the trailer about once a month about the same distance.

Average Hwy was 12MPG with 2014 F150, 5.0/3:31 rear gears pulling almost empty (5,500lbs) for 1,200 miles a Jayco 25BH T.T. . Avg Hwy without towing close to 24MPG pure hwy. Drops to 16-17 in stop & go traffic.

I get between 19-20L/100kms towing my set up fully loaded. That measurement would span roughly 800kms of winding highway and some pretty good grades both up and down.

My tow vehicle is a 2015 Ram 3500 with the Cummins 6.7 and I tow a 2013 26BH.

9.5 with the ford pulling the jayco! The best part is the 36 gallon tank. I drove from Gatlinburg to home on one tank of gas about 5 hours. That's important for me don't have worry about range anxiety.

Got 9 today on a 300 mile trip, demonstrating that an extra 10 mph is worth about 2 mpg. Squeaked into wenatchee with the computer saying 9 mi to E. Ha!
