What kind of gas mileage on your TV?

Just curious as to what everyone is getting. I have a 2010 F150 5.4L 3v w/3.55 gears and my gas mileage was 14 - 15 without the trailer (I just bought the truck so im enjoying the power = lead foot) With the TT hooked up I drove 75mi and ended up about 13.8mpg.

These discussions range all over the place. Driving styles are so different. When driven carefully, my '05 5.4 FX4 with 3.73s would get 18 mpg at 65 mph; consistently. Around town wasn't so good even with careful driving; about 14 to 15.

sorry, unless you had a heck of a tailwind, i find it really hard to believe nearly 14mpg pulling the TT.
especially when you got 15mpg without the trailer.
unless 13.8mpg is a typo.

Ya this thread should be all over the place since everyones trailers are different sizes.. I dont think mine is too bad pulling a 30 footer. Im calculating my gas mileage off of the info cluster that tells me it is getting 13.8. It's hard to calculate actual when most gas stations wont let me fill up. They stop at $75 or $100 and im too lazy to hang it up and start it again. lol.

Sucks to not see more Fords on here!

No typo. I drove highway and stayed at 60-65mph (no heavy foot) with the TT connected. Usually when I dont have the trailer im doing 85-90. So it is not a good comparison. Most of my driving is city though which brings the numbers down.

This truck is rated at 9800lbs towing capacity. Im not even close to it and the truck pulls it no problem

So far I am envious of all your all mileage. Then again I'm pullin a but load.

E350 6.9L v10, 4:10, pulling ~32'
60 mph = 7.5 to 8 mpg
65 mph = 6.5 to 7.5 mpg
these vary depending on the wind.

Not towing I get 11 to 12 mpg hwy, 11 city
