2014 2500HD Fuel Mileage?

I was just wondering if anyone here had the 2014 Chevy 2500HD Crew Cab, with the 6.0, and what kind of mileage you were getting with a trailer, and without?

Thanks!

Had one....the day I traded it about 6 weeks ago, the dash board menu said my average fuel mileage was 9.1......traded it for a 2012 GMC 2500HD with Duramax/Allison.

I have a Denali 1500 with a 6.0 and get around 17 unloaded and 10 loaded. I do have a custom tune on the computer that makes a little bit of a difference.

I have a 2011, with the 3.73 rear diff, and the 6.0L. I get on average 8.5 towing, and 16-18 not towing depending if I am doing a fair bit of city driving or not. The 6.0L has lots of power and handles our trailer quite nicely, but it is thirsty towing. Truth be told, if people are being honest with you, they are all thirsty towing, it's simply part of the game!

The 6.0 will pull but realistically, if your towing I'd be surprised to get into double digits with fuel mileage, duramax, I'm like everyone else 12-13 towing and up to 20 empty. I use fully app. and we average 14.2 this is with my wife driving in town, and towing our 5er. I very rarely get to drive her truck empty on the highway, bummer!

Granted....but one needs to ask themselves if the increased cost is warranted...all depends how much you will tow, and where. The purchase will be about 9-10k more and with diesel running .90-$1 more per gallon, it's getting increasingly more difficult to justify, for me and my current needs anyhow. Once we are both retired and traveling more, it may make sense and we will revisit it at that time. Plus if you are using it as a daily vehicle to get to work, etc, and live in a cold climate, it may not be whats best for that vehicle.

they are not 10k more to buy and diesel is not $1 more per gallon. It's about 7k more to buy, and it will always be worth 7k more than a equal gas truck. With the major increase in mileage, the slight cost per gallon difference is more than made up for. Cost me 19 cents per mile more to tow with gas versus diesel.

All depends where you live...where I am average price for gasoline is 1.08 a litre, diesel is 1.31, .23cents a litre diff is equivalent to 1.03 more per gallon...

Funny it always comes up to fuel mileage, extra maintenance, fuel cost.
My wife's daily driver was an 03 Tahoe, MAYBE got 14mpg, her same commute, and combined with towing our 5er we average 14mpg with our duramax, I'll take that all day long, I do all my own maintenance and honestly, I don't know why everyone thinks it's so much more to maintain a diesel, ok the oil is a little more, but we run it longer, the fuel filter is a little more, but we run those longer also, for me I don't see the maintenance argument.
