fuel mileage
« on: September 19, 2017, 06:14:33 PM »
I'm pulling a 11,000 pound 5th wheel with a Chevy 2500 6.6 Duramax. The trailer is 13ft.5in tall. We haven't made the first trip yet and we are trying to plan our stops using just one tank of fuel. The tank is 35 gal. What can I expect?

I have about the same size rig and truck. On a recent 1250 mile trip, I averaged 10.2 mpg.

I would have expected closer to 13 mpg with the diesel, but 10-13 is the likely range.  Your weight of your right foot is a major factor!
