Our 2004 F-350 6.0 4x4 SC, SB with 2:73 gear. When we went to Goshen 2013 I averaged 12-13 MPG round trip towing. 1524 miles round trip. I did not run over 65 mph and less that 2000 rpm. The only thing I have done to the motor was replaced Oil Cooler and "Bullet Proof" EGR Cooler.

I track my mpg on my iPhone using Gas Cubby and have found I get better gas mileage pulling my trailer than my DW gets driving around town. I know freeway is better than town on mpg but pulling I figured it would be comparable if not the same but it is much better by 2-3 mpg.

Seem like when the national speed limit, to lower our need for Mid-East oil, was set at 55 mph, that was to improve mpg?

Kinda hard to push the Bowtie in front with a chain.
