I just towed 6000lbs to georiga and back from North east ohio, roughly 1300 miles. I averaged 11.3mpg for the trip. On any medium or large hills it would downshift one gear, then upshift at the top and it would stay in top gear, on the smaller hills it would hold 75 in 5th. The only time it downshifted to third I had the cruise on at 75 and I was going up fancy gap in Virginia, which is a roughly 7 mile long hill.
