RE: Fuel consumption too high?

Thank you all very, very much for all the replies. I just finished a second trip and I made a few changes as suggested: I went from 65-75 mph avg to 55mph.When going uphill I slowed down to 45 mph.I started using premium gas instead of regular.I speed up after stopping veeeeeeery slowly. My consumption has gone up from 7.5-8.5 mpg to around 12 mpg. Way better! Just using premium instead of regular also helped a lot, when not towing I went from ~18 mpg (using regular) to 21-22 mpg (using premium). Thanks again!

Fuel consumption too high?

Hello, I have a Ford Ranger 2019 that does 18-21mpg on the highway at around 65mph. I have just purchased a GD 17MKE which is a 21', 6400 GVWR, travel trailer. I expected to go from 18-21mpg not towing down to maybe 11-13mpg while towing. Unfortunately I'm doing 8.5mpg at 65mph or 7.4mpg at 75mph. My brake controller seems to work. RV tires are at 60psi, truck tires at 40psi. Does this seem reasonable? Thank you!
