I am getting 10.5 mpg on a 2005 Suburban 2500 with the 6.0 liter gas engine pulling a 2005 25' Safari at 70 mph.

Towing I get 12.5 with our F250, with a T420 diesel @ 60 mph.

We're getting 12.5 to 13 mpg travelling at 55 to 60 mph. Regular unleaded gas. Both TV and AS are 5,300 pounds dry each.

I'll let you know when I get to Fla in Jan.

I'm really afraid to find out with this 8.1:lol:

I follow the don't-ask-don't-tell policy on this one. The answer would, I'm afraid, just be too depressing.

Getting about 10 mpg on a 3/4 ton GMC passenger van with 6.0 liter engine and 4.10 axle. Pulling a heavy 30' Classic slideout at 60 mph. About 13 mpg without the trailer.

2006 Tahoe 5.3 towing our safari; 6,317 miles out to Yellowstone and back using exactly 513 gallons of fuel averages 12.3 MPG. Of course going up the Big Horn I think we were getting about 3 MPG!

I am getting a second job soon so I can pay for the fuel we use. I am towing with a dodge ram 2500 with the 5.7 liter hemi and tow a classic 31 ft. I average 7-8 mpg.

GreggH 12-08-2006 11:47 AM

We're getting 12-13mpg with our F250 PSD towing the 31'. When we're on the flats along the east coast we've gotten close to 14mpg. Better than our previous diesel moho.

HiHoAgRV 12-08-2006 12:00 PM

We get 13-15 at 65-70 depending on the wind and terrain and how much traffic I'm holding up going up the big hills. We held 70+ coming into Knoxville from the north, passed RV's and 18 wheelers just for the fun of it. I love the turbo Cummins!

Phil - I have a 2004 Avalanche 5.3L and get about 14.8 around town, about 17.5 on the interstate, about 11 when towing our 28'er. Like you, that's on these flat Florida roads. BH
