Supercharged 5.7 w stock 4.30 rear gears premium fuel. I get 10 - 11 mpg all day towing our RV @ 55 - 60 mph Any more than that and the fuel milage will go down as the speed goes up. The front of the RV is the milage hog at 13' tall and 8' wide there is allot of resistance there. A pretty good head wind will also drop the milage as a good tail wind will help it, same with the mountains. Without pulling the RV I can get a solid 19 mpg @ 65 mph.

We also forget at times that the harder the engine works the "HOTTER" it gets, the hotter it gets, the more things can go wrong (overheating).

Better to have more then you need in case you don't have enough, because you can't get more !
