I got 8-10 with an 04 F150, 3.73, pulling an 8,400lb. FW on the flats so you're about right, but not your friend.

What speed was you friend going when he logged that mileage? It might be believable if he was going 40MPH or less.

Too many factors here for me to say for sure. But I don't think the weight of water in the fresh tank will make much difference. Different engines in your two trucks, head wind verses tail wind, towing speed of each driver, how was the mpgs measured? Etc. 9 doesn't sound unrealistic but I'm not too familiar with your TV. Good luck and enjoy.

I just made a 2,100 mile trip to Arizona pulling a 6X10 cargo trailer maxed out at least 4,000#on a single axle. All that I got was 12.5 mpg with a GMC DuraMax. When I pull my Wildcat 5er with 12,000# loaded I get 10-12 mpg. It shows the flat barn door pulling through the wind holds it back vs the round shape front cap. I did drive it 5-8 mph faster with some winds.
