This mileage is a good 10% better than my 5.4 would have done.
Good for you !! Thanks for the report

My DW said something this morning that I thought was good, we didn't worry about MPG when the gas was cheap. I used to own a 1974 GMC PU, got 15 MPG if you were pulling a train, a trailer or nothing at all. Just hope the gas prices start to decline some.

My 2011 Ram 1500 Big Horn CC 4x4 5.7l 3.55 ratio
gets the following with nothing behind it:
17.4 mpg (US) hwy
12.2 mpg (US) city
I did not notice any difference when towing the PUP.

I will report back the mileage with the new trailer after the weekend pickup.

If I was a wagering man I would bet that I will get about 0 mpg going through customs.

Quick update:
On the trip home from the dealers yesterday our mileage was:
@ 58 mph (90 km/h) 9.5 mpg

On a side note as soon as we got off of the hwy and started city driving it jumped to 10.8 mpg

If I drive nice I can get real close to 12, hauling the mail, +15 over the limit, is mid 10's. I-77 Canton OH to NC, up and down up and down. The engine brake is so nice.

Lead, follow, or get, you know the rest.
