Gear ratio plays a big part in your gas mileage. If you have an fuel economy type gear ratio, your towing mileage will suffer along with towing performance. You actually get a little better gas mileage with a 3:7X (about the normal towing ratio) recommended towing ratio. The difference could be 1 - 2 mpg. Nothing to lose sleep over.

I'm assuming you were travelling in the US to get that low of a price/liter?

My PSD F350 gets 11.5 consistently towing and 3-5 mpg more empty depending on traffic and speed.

8-9 mpg towing the trailer. 12-14 city, daily driving. Best results when using a premium grade fuel.

You and I have almost the same set up. The only exception on the rig is mines a 350. Very nice setup.
