My mileage was between 11-13 mpg towing on the highway and I could get it up to 22-23 mpg highway not towing. Towing this trailer on the prairies out here wasn't a problem.

I will be towing my trailer with my new truck for the first time this Friday and am pretty excited to feel the difference in power.
I did the same thing for the same reason. But I went with sport. The difference is night and day. You'll love the hemi I know I do.
