What grade of gas are you using. I was just reading we should be using mid grade to get the best mpg and performance. They even stated premium hurts the performance

I used 87 octane and the manual says 89 would give optimum performance. The towing section of the manual had nothing on fuel octane. That may be the next variable to experiment with.

I just got back from picking up my 2014 mini lite 2109s at RV Wholesalers in Ohio. I have a 2013 Ram 1500 with the 5.7 hemi. almost 1700 miles thru Mountains, average 9.8 miles per gallon. Boy can that hemi pull this trailer. I'm happy with the Ram, comfortable too.
