I have not had the opportunity to pull anything yet with the new truck but the previous trucks , the mileage varied with weight AND Aerodynamics, lots of weight and a slippery aerodynamic shape will get similar mileage as a light weight and trying to pull a "barndoor" aerodynamically.

a SRW will always have more sway than a dually with heavy weight but it is manageable until you are getting into the weight range that the dually is necessary. now that I have had a couple with the exhaust brake, I will NOT go back to one without! I actually was MISSING the EB when I was driving the Jetta TDI!
