Gas mileage

We're pulling a micro-lite 21 FBRS with a 2015 Silverado crew cab and getting 10. 5 MPG what are some of you other guys getting?

Thanks!

We just got back from our very first trip. 2014 Titan with 5.6 V8 pulling a Grey Wolf 24RK. Averaged 8.7 mpg. I don't think I'll track it anymore.

Sounds average.
In fact, for a Titan, that's pretty good.
They're notorious for poor gas mileage, compared to other 1/2 truck brands.

So I now tow with a diesel, should I not compare/mention my gas mileage with the diesel vs the silverado I just traded in because you are bitter about something? I had better remember to go to a fuel station to get diesel and not a "gas" station


Vpierce, we have a 2109S which is the same trailer. Almost the same as the FBRS and we did notice a mileage penalty versus our previous Aframe chalet but its quite a bit more wind resistance even though it is a light weight trailer pulling with the Silverado an 6.0 and it was as low as 8mpg in the mountains. Now its a non issue with the new truck.

Loading the trailer properly, not towing with a full tank of water and keeping weight out of the pass through saving some tongue weight helps. We do have two 30lb propane tanks and 2 6volt batteries which are a lot of weight though.

Enjoy

Pleased with this year compared to last year when the 150 was new. 11.9 mpg and that's including mountain driving. Real mountains, like out west mountains!
