Holy cow, 5.5 mpg!? thats insane, I used tow/haul and pulled an 8k lb 16ft van trailer and managed 7. I got fed up with the 4-5-4 shifting and I though it would be better to run high in 4 than tear up the tranny and save a few bucks in gas.
What doesn't kill us only makes us stronger, unless we end up comatose. In which case we slowly degenerate into a shell of what we used to be.
