Really? Most are lucky to get that with no wind. With a 25mph headwind mpg in the 9-10 range would seem more realistic.

But maybe you're like me and get your best mpg on the internet.

I don't believe it. 41' and 13,000lbs against a 25 mph headwind. Not seeing it. Something ain't right.

My MPG is terrible but I do have the power, The best I have ever gotten towing was 11.5 and just driving not towing going down the road both highway and Town is 16 MPG. That is not by the computer it's by hand accounting from the amount of fill up from the last amount, I just can't get better then that, but it was bought to pull my trailer not drive around Town. Makes no difference if I drive 55 or 65. I try to keep my RPM's at around 1800. The turbo will not kick in until I hit about 2500 RPM's. Then all bets are off it will just suck up the fuel. If I use the cruise control every little hill the turbo will kick in without it on I can control when it happens.

I checked the mileage when I filled up. It matched the computer calculated mileage. I only have a minor in math, but I can bring you along next time if you want to check my numbers.

When I was pulling my Wildcat into a 30 mph headwind at 70mph it was 7mpg.
