12 to 13 MPG hauling down the road with cruise on at 60MPH, unless I am bucking a West Texas headwind, then it decreases significantly. Both computer figures as well as pencil/paper calculations.

Not towing I get 18-22.5mpg but once I tow with a huge head wind I drop to 7.5mpg.

I got around 10-11 mpg pulling through the mountains last summer.

I didn't weigh it but I'm guessing the trailer weighed somewhere around 6800 lbs, truck is a 2011 Ram 1500 Hemi.

EDIT: Speed was around 65 mph

Just a note apparently American gallons and Canadian (Imperial) gallons are different.

Good point.

Mine is in american. I crossed the border before I put any gas in and made sure I was full before I crossed back at the end of the trip.....much cheaper on the other side

I get 13 to 14 mpg if I keep it at 55 to 60 mph if I go 65 mph it drops to about 11 and that is hand figured or computer both are about the same if I am bucking a strong head wind I have got 9 or less
