Thanks for the reply. I pull a bumper-pull trailer that tops out at 9000 lbs. At the present only pulling a 16 foot stock trailer.

if you don't have a diesel, 9-12mpg is pretty standard for towing a full height TT.
no matter whether 6.2 v-8 or 4.0 v-6.

Thanks bikendan and wolfcat1 for the info this is a great forum have checked many others and this forum seems to have the most info and respectful answers. I can live with that mileage towing and the mileage I get as a daily driver is also usable to me. At the present time I am towing a 16 foot stock trailer with approx. 6000 lbs of live weight beef calves. Sway control is a must as these animals are moving and swaying the trailer with-out wind or passing tractor-trailer units. I am using a husky 801-1200 WDH without sway control at the present time. New truck only approx. 1000 miles. Will likely be adding sway control in the near future. Camper trailer in near future. Sorry for the long winded reply.
