My 1500 w/Hemi seemed to do ok w/o tow/haul mode. BUT - while using T/H I would get REALLY BAD MPG, <6MPG but while on level and flat I would get ...8-9 MPG. Not much better, but a little better. 3.55 ratio and 6K travel trailer. Moved up to a 6.7 CTD and have not looked back. All towing for me is done at 58-6- MPH as much more the MPG really plummets and after 5-6 hrs towing it only adds 40 min to overall time on the road.
