Never happened. My wife and I have 46 years combined at Ford dealers. We would have seen it. Besides, the purpose of a dually is to have higher GVWR, not to falsify your registration.

Sounds like you have the right scenario to justify diesels in your application. We have 21, 6.7L currently in service. Fourteen of those are F-550 ambulances and the rest are service trucks that tow often. The service trucks average 10 MPG.

We towed 11,000 lbs 5er and got from 9.5 to 11 miles per gallon highway. Empty we get from 18 to 21 miles per gallon on the highway and between 13 and 16 around town. We have 2015 F350 PSD SRW.

We have upgraded 5er to 14,000 and couple short trips we got about the same millage.

Just for comparison - I have a 2013 3/4 ton Chevy crew cab with a 6.0L gas motor with about 68K on it. I pull a 34 ft V Nose that is between 8500 and 9000 depending on how much stuff I have in it. I get between 8-9 mpg on average. When just driving my truck on the highway I average about 12-13 mpg.

Olson, is that a calculated mpg? or is that number from the lieometer?

My 2012 F-350 king ranch long bed crew cab dually gets, on average 10.5 to 11.5 (hand calculated) pulling my 41' 5er, weighing 19,000lb. loaded. With no camper, about 16 city, 19 highway. One thing to consider is the driver. If you haven't driven a diesel much, your mileage will be lower. You have got to learn to keep your foot out of it, and let the torque work for you. Applies accross the board, but maybe more so with drivers that do not own the truck.
One of the first things I did, was to put a Titan 65 gallon tank under the bed. It replaces the stock tank. Gives you extra time to find a truck stop when towing long distance.
