Same trailer with 3 sleds in it with my 2008 Cummins got 16-17. That was with all deletes done.

My Tahoe was just as bad with the v-nose and two-three snowmobiles inside. It was like I had a fuel leak MPG was so bad!!!!

I haven't pulled anything yet with my Ram, but I typically get around 17 mpg when the majority of my driving is highway. Again...this is average, and I'm usually hauling the mail as they say. If I slow down between 60-65, it's much better. Get anywhere in the 45-50 range, and it gets great gas mileage according to the EVIC. For a close to 400hp V8, I'm pretty happy how reasonable the mileage can be all things considered.

I just bought my 2012 Laramie last week with 24 miles on it. The 160 miles drive home was into a headwind and averaged 17 mpg. That was half at 68 mph, half at 60 mph. Came home from Thanksgiving with a tailwind and averaged 19.5 mpg running 60 mph. This is running winter blend fuel, 10% ethanol.

I've had my Express 1 month with 2,500 miles on it so it's still breaking in.
With 3.55 gears and LSD the hand calculated mileage is from 16 to 18 with
a 50/50 mix of city and highway.
