Haven't completely broke in the transmission yet since Ford says take it easy the first 500 miles towing but so far on the short trips I've made at 50-55 mph the trip computer is listing around 9.5 mph using a E-85 and reg gas mix and slightly lower using mostly E-85. Running without the load I show about 13.5 at that speed. Up to 70-75 the mileage is up to an average of 18 unloaded so I hope to get a bit better once I finish the break in period. Been testing the mileage difference between the 2 fuels so I get the best value, found a station close to home with E-85 at $1.57 while Unleaded is hovering around the $1.90 range. E-85 is slightly ahead at that spread but not by much.

We tow an '09 Palomino Gazelle 218 (5000 lbs. wet, 21' long) with an '09 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab with the factory towing option. On the flats, or moderate inclines, the Tacoma performs well and can maintain 65mph without strain. On some of the steeper grades through the Rockies I find that we will slow to under 50mph.
