We had an almost 15000 lb alpenlite with your same truck and many times the mileage was same as you tell. Usually towed at 62 MPH math and DIC until the speedometer needed work and it was accurate after the repair.

And yet ANOTHER one today...a shutdown due to a DEF system problem, AFTER burning a bunch of fuel going into re-gen mode for an hour. That makes three trucks, three different engine manufacturers (Cummins L9, Detroit Diesel DD13, Volvo D13), three trucks out of service for emission problems.


Not surprised... In addition I have a BIL that is a Case IH mechanic and the number one problem he works on is the emissions systems.


I think you will find that with all the brands.
