I tow a 24' Trade Wind (1963) with a Mercedes Benz ML350 Bluetec diesel. I get 17-20 mpg at 65 mph (cruise control) depending on terrain and wind. The engine never works hard no matter the uphill grade.

2006 Dodge Ram, 5.9 Cummins, one ton, automatic, towing 1999 25 Safari, weighed at 5,500#s on the trip. Just did a test run, 4,400 miles, Florida to California and back. I averaged just a fraction under 15 mpg (14.75) start to finish. I was getting 16 to 17 on the flats, 15 to 16 in the hills, but averaging in pit stops and camp grounds, 15. The final figure is by tracking mileage and fuel. The dash readout showed a tad more.

What's your towing MPG?

My mileage varies according to my speed and prevailing winds.

About 8.5 to 11 (hand calculated)

I will save the drama and not say how fast I am going when I get 8.5.


Superat stultitia.

2015 Ram ecodiesel and 2014 Bambi 16, towing mileage is from 17 to 21 depending on terrain empty I've gotten as good as 31mpg. Pretty amazing truck with more torque than the hemi at a lower rpm! I'm sure the 8 spd automatic transmission is a part of this equation too.

Took a 4700 mile trip last summer through up, down and flat terrain towing a 22' International with a 5.0L Ford F-150 and averaged 13.2 mpg. Tried very hard to never go over 60 mph.

10 mpg - 1997 Tahoe LS with a 350 fuel injected engine. 23' AS. Once the fuel gauge hits 1/2 I start looking for a gas station because 1/2 is actually about 12 gallons left. My 32 gallon tank is great to have!

12 mpg with a new Pendleton, with a simple 2013 Ford 150.

I like simple.

Totally Surprised!!

Pulling a 2000 34' A/S with empty tanks but loaded including solar & 4 heavy batteries with pickup bed full & a P3 hitch, I averaged 13.3 MPG pulling from Phoenix to Denver with a 2015 3/4 T. Duramax. I estimate about 10,500 lbs.
On a shorter pull of about 200 miles in Northern Colorado I got 15.6 MPG. Total miles on the truck is 3,500 miles.
Without pulling I average on the Hwy. around 18 MPG.

No complaints here!!
