I've got experience with both gasser and duramax, both with our Sabre 34tbok, very similar to your qbok. With our f250 V10 cc 4wd, the best empty I could get was 13 at 60mph. Averaged 11 empty. Pulling I could get 8, but averaged between 5-6. It was rough but I loved that truck and it pulled fine. After our accident last winter I bought a 06 GMC 3500 drw 4wd cc long bed. I can get 22 mpg at 60 mph empty, average about 17 empty with town, hwy, and some idle time included. 9-12 pulling. All that said the diesel and Allison make pulling a breeze.

I tow a Cedar Creek 32RL 36 ft long and I get 11.5 to 12.0 loaded and run around 63mph. I have found there is 3 things men will lie about. The mpg they get on there trucks, the size of fish they caught and something else. I don't worry about mpg, when the fuel tank gets low I just put more in. We have the wrong hobby to worry about mpg

It is a very attainable number. I get 12-14 pulling my 40' 18k Trilogy. I can also get 26-28 empty. The secret is what's not behind the turbo anymore and what was plugged into the OBDII. 😁

You are calling BS on his claims, I'm calling BS on yours. I went on a trip with a friend once in an 05' F-350 with a V10 pulling a 4000 pound boat, and we got 7 mpg. That was mostly flat highway for 400 miles round trip. Gas was $4.25 a gallon at the time. After paying for half the gas in the truck and the boat, I had to do a refi on the house and sell my first born!!

Loaded. It's unloaded, where the difference is.

if your gettine 7-8 towing and diesels are getting 11-12, how is that the same? 12 is 50% more than 8 last time I checked. That's a huge savings.

There were quite a few stating sub 10mpg w their diesels.
