I pull a 14x7 tandom axle trailer a lot with my rig. If I tow at 75 I get about 8.5 mpg, but if I back it down to 65 I can average very close to 11 mpg. This is out west up and down mountains all the time. I tow the trailer almost everyday to and from work, about 40-60 mile round trips. I average about 9.3-9.6 mpg with the mixed city highway towing. That works out to about 1.5 mpg less than I got towing the same trailer with my 2003 GMC 2500 6.0 work truck. Not bad considering that truck was a single cab stripped work truck. My Dodge has got to weigh 1500 lbs more than that truck, and I will take the comfort, power and looks for 1.5 mpg anyday!!!
