I just did 500 miles through Tennessee and Kentucky back to Illinois with an empty 7x12 enclosed tandem axle and got 12.3. 4x4 Crew with 3.21 and 8 speed. Going down solo to get the trailer I got 21.

I'm puzzled about the Cummins and mpg. My friend has an 03 2500 Quad Cab with a Cummins (4wd, 3.73). A few years back, he towed my boat out to a lake in the hill country and I got around 9.5 mpg. We did have some luggage and 5 people in it, but still my 02 4.7l was always above 10 with the boat. My current truck seems to be somewhere between 11-13 (only towed once).

I just back from camping this is the 1st time towing with this truck my camper weighs 6700 lbs and i got 6.2 mpg that is pretty depressing all the transmission did was keep on shifting gears its going back to the dealer the truck should get better gas mileage than that and the tranny has serious issues

2014 Ram 2500 5.7 Hemi, 410 axle and 24 ft TT at about 6800lbs. At 60-65 mph got 9-10 mpg. Wind resistance is the worst.
