I'm curious. What do people tow & tow with that gets over 10 miles to the gallon? I'm talking gasoline engine. I want to down size from a 33' 5th wheel for more campground selection & manuver-
ability. But I also would like to improve my 6mpg.
Well, I doubt you would want to down size to my size, but you asked . My truck (see signature) towing my trailer which weighs about 4,000# loaded gets about 11 mpg towing. Before adding the K&N air filter I got about 9.5 towing.
2009 Silverado 2500HD 4X4 C/C/6.0/3.73/Pullrite Super 5th.
2004 Puma 249RBS fifth-wheel bunkhouse.USAF/GULF WAR VET.
We get about 9.5mpg towing with our rig. Trailer weighs in at 5100 pounds.
Todd- you aren't trying to sell us all something now, are you??? A 10% increase in mileage just be switching to synthetic ATF (and you're other claim on another post about Syn ATF dropping tranny temps 40 degrees)- you think we're all that naive?
