Just for comparison with a non-ecoboost towing near maximum capacity: My '12 GMC Sierra 1500 CC 2 WD 5.3 (3.42, HD Tow package) was getting about 7 - 8 lifetime towing (towed it for about 1 1/2 years, weekend outings, no real long trips). Towed a '14 28BHBE with only people and dog in the truck, TT loaded to about 7500-7700 lbs, mostly flat coastal plains, with an occasional hill thrown in for good measure.

We averaged 9.5 up and back from NJ to Maine with our Eagle 284 BHBE. Kept it between 55 and 60 - no faster.

I just towed mt 28BHBE from Ontario to Maine and back with my '15 Sierra 5.3 (6spd, 3.42 axle) and got between 8-10mpg. I had four passengers and luggage, so I was probably close to the payload capacity, but it towed well other than around some rough highways in Massachusetts.

For all you EcoBoost owners, and '14+ Chevy/GMC owners, install an air/oil separator on your truck's PCV system ASAP! This is especially important if you tow alot and want to avoid carbon buildup on your valves.

We just returned from an 838 mile trip (all interstate) in the panhandle of Florida. We pulled a 29 QBS with our 2013 F150 EB 4x4 SCREW between 60 - 65 mph. I hand calculated it at 9.86 MPG. Obviously flat with a few decent sized hills (for a Floridian).

With my F150 I get 12-13 mpg at 62mph. That's mostly interstate driving with small hills. Truck has HD tow package with 5.4L.
Happy RVing,
Jeff

I have a Ram with the Hemi and I'm getting 10-12 towing my X254. I thought the EcoBoost was supposed to be better. Glad I stuck with a Ram!

A bit apples to oranges there in terms of weight there. Glad you like the Ram though. I drove it and was very impressed with the transmission.
