thats about right on for what my dad was getting in his 03 DRW 3500 hauling 35' travel trailers.. the reports from the chevy / ford guys were single digit MPG's ..
He had a steady job and watched what he spent.
He'd say I don't believe in payin' no goddamn rent.
I'll squirrel away every goddamn cent
and buy my own damn house in Kalamazoo.
