I tow a 5700 pound unloaded 26RLWS with a Chevy 1/2 ton, 5.3 V8 4x4 and I get 9 - 10 MPG towing. One time I towed at 55 instead of the usual 65 MPH and got 11.0.

I have made 3 short trips with my 2014 Crew F150 5.0L V8 gas. pulling about 7100 lbs in South Texas doing about 62 mph. I have not pulled in mountains or against a strong wind. I have averaged about 10.5 mpg on mostly flat land.

New to towing anything, so it was a little learning curve when we bought our ML23fb.
TV is a RAM1500 2wd 2dr w/8' bed and small 4.7L V8
Trailer has a stickered dry weight of 4100lb's.
Our first trip when I really had no clue we averaged 8.7 on a 65 mile trip.
Since then I figured out how to anticipate hills and getting the transmission to shift sooner.
Now we get 11.8 to 12.2 with the A/C on, with it off we are getting 13.3.
Not bad for a little V8.
Generally try to stay around 62.5mph on the highway.

Thanks!

We have the same rig but a 3 door 2000 Silverado. We get the same mileage pulling at 60-70. Slowing down to 55 gives us 13.2.

What grade fuel do you buy? We went to the middle grade and we got about 60 or so more miles per tank. I don't track mpg just how far I can go on a tank and I carry 5 gallion gas can. Hate stopping for fuel. Try the upgrade and see if you go further.

Sounds reasonable. I get around 9 +/- mpg with tundra 5.7L and fifth wheel. You're good.
