35ft TT 2015.5 or 2004.5 duramax. depends on terrain, but between 10 and 13.
on the 2015.5 for 15K of towing I've averaged 11.9 overall.

on the 2004.5 47K of towing averaged 12.1 overall

Avg is about 11.5 or maybe a little more. We do a lot of mountain driving though.

36’ TT 10k with a 2012 Cummins. Most of the time it’s 12ish. Under perfec conditions it’ll creep up to around 14 but it pulls effortlessly.

"Ouch!! Yep, towing a trailer and good gas mileage are mutually exclusive.
