Ok, so I just want to see if I'm on with my MPG or low or what. Sig says what the truck has, I am pulling a 40' 5er, dual slide outs, gross weight at 22,500. I was averaging 10-11 mpg, 850-1050 egt, 180-190 trans, 200 coolant, pulling at average 60 mph at 1900rpm. I am also using fuel from on Ft Lewis with 5% biofuel. Pulling in the Northwest Washington, south of Olympic Forest, Air temp approx. 55. Any feedback would be great. Thanks.

With my mods and 33" I get about 13mpg int town, 15 on the highway. Towing I got 11mpg with a 28' empty trailer (average speed 80) and tow the 8 ton tractor back (averaging 67mph) I got 9 mpg your doing pretty good.

I grew up here and maybe you mean capitol forest, or olympic national park? Regardless. I tow a 30 foot RV trailer that only weighs around 7500. 10-12 is the range of mpg I can get. Compared to a big gas engine at 6 we're doing great but these things need to burn fuel to move such trailers.

Your mileage is about right, lots of aero drag with 5th wheel but your trans temps are pretty high. Towing 22k we rarely see over 160* at 85* degrees much less at 55. Might consider a tru-cool or a 6.0 trans cooler and protect your transmission.

Sounds like your about right on mpg's, that trailer is like a giant airbrake so your actually doing good
