towing mileage
 
Hey guys just wondering what other people are getiing for mileage while towing a travel trailer. My trailer weighs around 4200 lbs loaded. I just came back from a trip close to 500 miles using my tow haul only and got 13 mpg. Or 21.5L/ 100 km Didn't think it was that bad.

Yea that sounds about right. I towed a 24 foot, 6,000 pound enclosed trailer from RI to Washington DC and back with lots of Highway and city and my mileage was around 10 to 13 mpg.

Me too! I've had it as low as 7 mpg and as high as 10 mpg pulling my travel trailer.

well i Guess i have nothing to complain about. I used my tow haul selector and once i got going on a flat run it held in fourth gear. I was using 89 octane. truck runs and pulls much better with better gas

Just got home from another trip. Average was 20.0L/100km. set the cruise at 98km/h or 60 mph. it went through the gears and held in fourth most of the way

I pull a 7500lb 29ft travel trailer when loaded and get 7-10 mpg depending in if there is allot of mountains or flat.

I am averaging 14 MPG towing a 3K Aliner (pop-up), so no aerodynamic drag.
