I also wonder if you have the same "clunk" I have if I shift from Park to reverse before the engine idles down to 800 RPMs.
Thanks for any input.
Sorry I didn't reply sooner!
Due to the virus we didn't take any "long" trips, stayed pretty close to home this year. We took 3 trips, furthest was about 1.5 hrs over some very hilly terrain (2- 3 were 8% grades, approx 1 mile), we used just over a 1/4 tank. Seem to average 9 miles per gallon pulling the HT over the 3 trips.
Average MPG is 12.8, but I do no highway driving to speak of, so I think its doing pretty well. It's as good at the 2018 6.2 we had.
I will say getting gas while towing is a conern to me. I always check google maps for accessible stations along the route if we know we have over 3 hours to drive. Don't like to get much under a 1/2 tank before we fill up if possible. We have 5 gallon jerry can, but really wish there was a way to add capacity.
As for the clunk, the only time that happens is if I'm parked on an incline and shift into reverse. If not, it doesn't make that noise.
Really happy to see you are pulling the 321RSTS. I assume you are good on payload? Just ordered ours 2 weeks ago, they say we will see it after the new year. I think spring is more realistic. Would love your impressions on pulling the 321 with this truck.
Good luck with your new truck. I love mine!
