Hauling mileage dropped to about 10 mpg.


That would be a dream come true, i have the same truck... I get about 10miles to the gallon combining city/hw. Towing a trailor w/jeep, and some camping gear in the back of the truck, the best ive ever seen towing is 4.9mpg and that was because i was forced to drive 40mph part of the way, other then that its been about 4.5mpg.

Id like to know what you did to get that, i wouldnt even be concerned about getting rid of my truck for a newer one with cummins.
