a couple of months ago i pulled 15k lb trailers with 37s on my truck and got about 18 to 20mpg. I call BS on this one. You would be lucky to 18mpg empty.
Last load I hauled combined weight 29,400lbs. I averaged right at 8mpg on my 300 mile + trip. Unfurtunatly there was not much flat ground.

I'm kinda curious. The old Ford diesel site is overrun with posts like these.
What is it that that makes a guy wanna brag about mediocre MPG?
I must have missed the memo.
Beleave me im not braging this seams 8.5 mpg is low to me.i was getting 10 to 11 with out the edge. just seeing what to expect. no reason to get the tape measure out.I dont have enough money to compete i apreciate the imput guys.
From san diego to Glamis pulling 7750lb trailer fully loaded bed I averaged 12.2 MPG round trip going the "back" way.
Pulling 6000lb trailer from san diego to Buttercup I averaged 9.6 MPG. Those hills really eat the fuel. Even keeping it at 45 on the long climbs
