My last truck was a gasser with a 26 gallon tank. And I got 7 mpg towing.

I put on a slightly taller tire for the trailer (when I took off the bombs) and run slightly less air in the bags and the truck rools out nice and straight.

We tow our new Grey Wolf 26DBH with a 2014 Ram 1500 Outdoorsman 4x4 Crew Cab with a 3.92 rear end. It tows like a dream. I average between 8 and 11 MPG depending on wind and terrain, and it tows at 65 MPH at a comfortable 2000-2500 RPM depending whether its in 7th or 8th gear. Those are about the same numbers I was getting with our old 23 foot Crossover that weighed 2000+ lbs less.

2001 F250 7.3l Superduty w/ 85k miles. Only downside I can tell is it is a bit noisier than the newer trucks.

2000 F-250 crew cab 4x4 7.3 PSD pulling a 2015 hemisphere 356 QBQ. Pulls it pretty good but don't know the fuel mileage towing yet as we have only had one trip since bought the our 5er. The only problem I have had is getting the brakes controller adjusted right. I am either locking the trailer up or struggling to get it stopped. Thinking of changing the controller and trying again.

Pros: Tows our WildCat with no complaints, low mileage on odometer,
not too bad for towing mileage, Reliable.

cons: wife complains that it is noisy when it is cold, but better when warm.
