Anywhere from 10.5 to 11.88 hand figured in all terrain, doesn't seem to matter. Seems like the harder it works the less she drinks.

My truck got 11-12MPG measured average on a trip from NM to Yelllowstone. I pull around 7000lbs.

I'm happy

Using the truck computer. I did the math a couple of times when I first got the truck and it was real close. The computer in my other car is way off so I understand the reason behind the question.

The computer says 9.9mpg @ 65mph and 10.9 @ 60.
These results are from 2 trips @ 65mph totaling 1680 mi and 1 trip @ 60 for 870 mi.
I may try 55mph if my patience will allow.

Pulling that big induced drag my 03 Duramax gets 11 avg at 65mph,as much as 21 unloaded on hwy,around my little town it varies since it never gets to warm up on my extremely long commute to the office,1.2 miles.I am having a 4" exhuast put on today so I will know if any trick really works after the trip this weekend.

Lol...it will depend if my TT is pushing me or if I am pulling her uphill...lol...seriously....I would be surprised if I got 8-9 mpgs. But then again, I wouldn't have bought my TT if I was worried about my gas mileage. Having a TT is like a home away from home. I think about what motels used to charge me a night. I stayed in Jasper Alberta for 2 nights and it cost me $540.00 plus tax.....and this was at a Inn that was about 40 yrs old....it was clean, but dated. Had I driven another 40 kilometres.....it would have cost me $80.00.....I figure that I am still ahead even after paying the camp fees.

We get as low as 10 and as high as 13 towing our trailer. We tow at 55 to 65 depending on the road. We get 16 to 20 on most non towing refills.
