Don't know, we've only had the trailer out once (it's only a week old ). Haven't gotten enough miles on it to make an estimate. Others I know with a similar setup (6.5 diesel TV and trailer size) report anywhere from 12-16 mpg. My truck usually "tickles" 20 MPG unloaded in day to day driving and 23-24 MPG straight highway...
