Default Is MPG that much better with Diesel when towing ?

I have a 2012 Ram 2500 with a Hemi.... I recently aquired a 8.5 x 28Ft enclosed trailer. I have yet to tow it fully loaded but I was getting around 7mph with the Hemi. The power was there and she pulled great, so I can't complain in that department.... but curious how much better diesel would be getting me. Im not so concerned with the extra power of diesel as I dont plan on towing much in the hills, mainly in FLA and up the east coast....

Trailer empty is about 5000Lbs and fully loaded will be close to 10,000LB


Just looking for opinions, Thanks!
