Kinda hard to do the math when you don't have any idea what the truck or trailer weights and I don't think you learned your numbers with getting kicked out of Iowa school system your first day in kindergarten.

if you do, then you are the only person with a gasser, pulling a TT, getting that kind of gas mileage.
and that's based on 15 years of being on various RV forums.

did see someone on RV.net, who had a friend who claimed 18mpg towing with his Cummins diesel. check out the comments on that fish story:

Sorry you feel that way.

You did ask for opinions.
Opinions you did get.

I'd love to see 15 mpg even without my trailer. Have a f250 crew cab 8' bed 174" wb no wdh, 6.2ltr gas 373 rear. Coming back from Goshen experimented with tow haul and without. Saw a little improvement on mileage no where near 15 more like 9.5. When on tow haul. No tranny temp problems. Did not weigh since earlier in the year but willing to bet thst I'm just about at my weight limits.

I just checked my truck yesterday. It is 12 mpg driving around town in the 32 degree weather. Thats dry, Towing I am 10 mpg. Don't believe what you read or see. Also Tow/Haul mode is absolutely mandatory IMHO. It changes the downshifts and provide much needed dynamic braking.
