Just got back from 9 days on the road to Florida and back. Total trip was around 900 miles with about 750 towing the Airstream. Got 10-11 mpg this trip. Love this truck, even Susan likes the way it rides. Just not crazy about the mpgs.

we have a F250 Super duty, we tow an 35' AS classic limited. we get just under 10mph towing. we do not exceed 65 mph and normally sit at 62 when on the highway. Our fuel tank is 28 gal and we plan to refuel at 250 miles. We also carry two 5 gal. jerry cans of gas for those long stretches of coastal or interior highway.

2008 F250 Towing 34V Avion

With our '08 F250 with a 350 gas we average ~16.5 highway (doing speed limit) single; 14 city; 12 towing our '86 Avion 34V. towing will dip down to 10 in extreme hills/foothills, 8-9 mountains. Extremely flat we have even averaged better than 13! Speed of ~55 when towing. When we had an SOB average was 8-9, best was 10, and worst was 6.5! And the SOB weighed 3/4 of what the Avion does!

I wanted to add that back in '03 a friend had done some research that seemed pretty reliable that you could figure a payback on the extra cost of the diesel (original cost, fuel, & maint.) once you went past 81,000 miles. Don't know what the figures would be today.
