When I went to the factory last week it was the first long trip with the 5ver in tow. On the way to I averaged 12.5 mpg and on the way back I averaged9 mpg. On the way out all tanks were empty and on the way home the fresh was 2/3 or more (but not full) and some water in all the other holding tanks (less than 1/3). Overall travel was 837.5 miles and used 82.5 gallons of fuel. I thought this was good MPG.

G'day George

We get 8 - 9 mpg, depending on the speed limit and I really don't know my weight.

It sounds like you are getting very good gas mileage.

Just returned from a week in Williamsburg, VA. Got about 9 mpg on the way to and a little over 8 on the way back. I had less weight coming back, but sat on I-95. We averaged 15 miles per hour for about 20 miles due to accidents and such . I'll never travel that road again.

We went to Myrtle Beach last weekend and average just below 12 there and back. It really helps when the roads are that flat.

We left CO and headed to GA then up to KY returned to GA to drop off the grandkids and back home to Colorado.First tank of gas we did extremely well about 12 MPG however after that lots of hills and wind overall entire trip We averaged 9.8 MPG. running 65 most of the time I think I'll trim back to 60 and see if it gives a significant change as we have a 4x10 rear end and the truck does not like to go fast anyway

With my 04-diesel I could get around 10-11. With the 09, I got 9 going down to Missouri with a FULL tank of water, but coming back I only got 7 due to the 30-mph wind I was fighting all the way home.

I went to Myrtle Beach last week myself. I got anywhere from 9.9 to 11.5 MPG. This was done using a calculater as the onboard computer in my truck is about 3 MPG off. I was cruising anywhere between 65 and 70. The winter blend diesel along with the Ultra Low Sulpher sucks.

Fuel = Power to pull.
