I was curious, how many mpg do you get?
I'm pulling about 7k with my Sequoia (401 lb ft torque)
Our first long haul we averaged 8.3 mpg.
I see these HUGE rigs going down the road and say to myself
"wow the must get 2 mpg"

I've got a Tundra with the 5.7 so I'm guessing if that's what you have in your Sequoia I'll probably get about the same. We've only gone twice now and they were both short trips. The week after next we are going on a longer trip....I'll set the computer and see what it tells me.

We run between 7-8 pretty consistantly. Does not matter much what we are pulling.

When we were pulling our 7k TT with the GM gasser, we run about 10. With the new Ram diesel it went to 12. Traded the tt for a 9.5k fw, and we dropped down to 11.

I tow with a H2 Hummer 2006.

It gets 25 MPG.
10 in the city and 15 on the highway.

Sorry could not resist, numbers are about right not towing.
Towing 27' TT I get 10.5-11.5 MPG depending on terrain.
