13.5 MPG? That's diesel mileage. Best I can get towing a 8329SS travel trailer with my Tundra is 9.5. 10 on a good day. Was your trip all down hill

Yea, it sure seems like there's something stinky in the wood pile there. All too often you see someone towing something down the road and you have to wonder what are they thinking.

I trade my max tow Ecoboost F 150 for a F 250 Diesel with a lighter trailer (rockwood like your flagstaff) I was within some limits but over on payload. No way the Tundra is within limits with the Cougar.

One major factor in MPG is where you live and what restrictions the EPA has in those areas. I live in Milwaukee, where 10% Ethanol is mandatory, and that will easily kill my daily MPG by 10-15% compared to somewhere that has 100% gasoline.

Texas has mandated ethanol blend fuel. Except at some marinas you can get non ethanol at a premium price

I have a 2011 Tundra towing around 10,000# and from Richmond, Va to North Fort Myers, Fl I got 11.061 MPG. I guess because I was going downhill with cruise set at 61 MPH. I did not check on the way back until I got to Savannah, Ga. From there home I got 9.196 MPG.

If I would go by the onboard computer that calculates the average MPG and not reset when I fill up with gas it would show a higher value which I know is wrong. I calculate my average MPG by dividing the total gallons of fuel used into the total miles traveled at the end of the trip.
